Trois études de séparation: Lointain - Luisance - Lacis
Far from the world
«Three studies of parting : Lointain ' Luisance ' Lacis is a triptych; three studies of a dry beauty, heady, with minimalist lyricism. Three « nocturnes » which deal with erotism, separation and “ghostly”. An outmoded play which takes us a little farther of the world, towards things buried in the self, like an echo of forgotten situations in a disappeared space...
- Three duets : man/woman, woman/woman, man/man.
- Three choreographic pieces, each linked to a musical work : Richard Wagner, Johann Sebastian Bach and W.A. Mozart
- Three forms of eroticism : eroticism of hearts / mystical eroticism / eroticism of bodies.
- Three perspectives playing on “clichés” : the difficult interlocking of the man/woman duet, searching for the one who is lost; the blurred links between mysticism, eroticism and hysteria for the woman/woman duet; and the purely physical relationship for the man/man duet.
In these three proposals, eroticism is considered a poetic contemplation.
The work was constructed around the idea and principle of editing isolated images in order to create a living flux; the labyrinthine positions in Lointain, the iconography of the Salpêtrière hospital asylum and saints in ecstasy in Luisance, and the cinematic montage of Lacis. The choice made in each of these pieces is to show the passing from the continuous to the discontinuous, or from the discontinuous to the continuous, and to work on a dissolution of constructed forms.”
