Maeva Cunci & Dominique Gilliot (FR)

Maeva Cunci, a dancer and choreographer & Dominique Gilliot, a performer, poetic being and musician have been collaborators since 2010, working in the vast fields of performance, installations and living arts, firing on all cylinders, claiming their love for a kind of amateurism, but one that does not prevent from doing anything, maybe even one that enables everything. Their work is multi-layered and connects contemporary art exhibition with a choice for specific tools belonging to the fields of the living arts. 

Maeva Cunci & Dominique Gilliot (FR): La Représentation de trop (The one performance too many)

La Représentation de trop (The one performance too many) is a contemporary art show happening, a kind of kaleidoscope, a collage of various genres including poetry, dance/movement, music, installations, and a certain taste for amateur skills pushed at their very limit. It is at the same time fragile and deep, experimental and experienced, graceful and staggering and in many ways magnificently pathetic.
It manages to bring together a patchwork of references running from epic poetry in the middle ages to spatial geometrics, but also glimpses of the underwater world, Bill Murray, hypothesis about the show’s various possibles, Vasco de Gama, a mysterious project, what is it you’re looking at when you close your eyes? How high beneath the ceiling, and what’s it all about this moustache craze? Yes, metaphysics can be fun.
This project that has been premiered last January in France and in French, and for this residency in Buda, we will be working on the English version.
