GLITCH - creation 2019

With GLITCH, Demestri and Lefeuvre set about decrypting an aesthetic of error.

For this creation, they started from a simple observation: technology is becoming so omnipresent in our lives that we live in a hyper-reality where it is increasingly difficult to discern truth from falsity. Cinema, literature, TV series, video games have fed our imagination with futuristic technological references, which seem to be getting closer and closer, hacking into our perception of reality. They want to tackle these themes and sensations head-on and re-appropriate them on stage.

Just like “glitch artists” seek ways to provoke errors in the flow of data processing to create new images, new sounds, they want to disrupt their way of creating movement to reveal potential creative errors within their choreographic material.

The glitch questions the system and because it is a strange spectacle, this fortuitous phenomenon has been transformed into an artistic current.

Therefore, it is not a question of turning a critical eye on these phenomena or on the excessive “technologizing” of our society, but rather to be inspired by them in order to bring out creative anomalies, aesthetic accidents and paradoxically, flashes of humanity, organicity...
