Acrobatics danced on BMX bike in contemporary music
A bike on a stage is absurd …
For a bike, a scene is both too big and too small, it’s both huge and cramped. We limit the trajectories, we go around in circles, we draw lines, we make it on the spot.
A naked plateau populated with voices, surrounded by luminous squares, haunted by metronomes, invaded by private cushions and visited by a small car. A bike that becomes a partner or extension of the body.
A minimalist and offbeat universe, which explores with poetry and humor the bonds that are woven between a man and his bike.
Exploring body and bike movements: developing, increasing, decreasing, repeating, inverting, varying, then composing with light and music – here essential to reveal space and time, but also to transform, undo, or even create the movement.
Exploring virtuosity as physical as evocative, playful and dreamlike.
Listen to silence, listen to the bike: pulsation, rhythm and dynamics. Listen to contemporary musical aesthetics (Cage, Ligeti, Grisey, Campo …) that radically question both matter and form as the organic link between sound and time.
Sounds and silence. Black and colors. Time passing and stopping. A character who seeks his place between madness and everyday life, between champion and everyone.
