Rémy Héritier (FR): Here, then
Now he’s creating Here, then. Rémy and visual artist Marcelline Delbecq apply the principle of Camera Obscura to dance. Five dancers move behind a black curtain while you see their live projection in the forefront – in an analogue way, there is nothing digital about this ! The dancers also frequently come to the forefront so that an interesting dialogue arises between the two levels of depth. The voice over texts suggest all sorts of new meanings.
