The palimpsest refers to a parchment whose first writing was erased and on which we wrote again.What is the human body other than a universal and natural palimpsest ? It is in this sense that Jean-Baptiste Bonillo explores the body’s memory. "Palimpseste" stripped bare, literally and figuratively, queries the body-control and ability to reveal its own History through the use of hypnotic processes.The utilisation of live hypnotic procedures on stage and the creation of spaces ' through specific video editing that's manipulated unto its textual body- infuses a possibility of creation where everything is mixed. From this clash and these "art ifacts" derives a spectacular dimension which contributes to an intimate search for a profound and universal part of us.
