troisième nature (third nature)

creation 2022

Seeking to break away from anthropocentric automatisms when creating movement, Florencia Demestri and Samuel Lefeuvre bet with Troisième Nature on the potential for the body to translate non-human, even non-living movements. They believe that the body can function as a landscape, in the sense of a multitude in the making, and then become a surface for the inscription and circulation of a whole diversity of modes of existence.

At the center of a circular installation around which the audience is seated, they recompose a sensitive, non-anatomical body made of a mirror-surface, taking spectators on a journey through the randomness of forms. Rather than a choreographic phrasing or a defined corporality, images follow one another, conjuring up the phenomenon of pareidolia - that spontaneous transformism of the visible, which can make us see a horse in a cloud, or a mountain range in patches of humidity !
