NIGHT OWLS: The live performance is peripheral in this 360-degree luminous installation whose central proposition is light itself, rendered tangible and transformative. This is literally a staging of light in space. It begins as you are guided into a pitch-black space suffused with a forceful drone. A glowing, floating entity appears, acknowledges your presence, then connects with you through touch. You are scattered with the other spectators across the seemingly infinite space. The space above you then awakens with shifting colours and intensities. As you are left to your senses, light comes to life. RITUEL GÉOMÉTRIQUE: Shiny little diamonds and three-dimensional geometric shapes, touched and handled by the performers, bring into existence a language of moving imagery. A photographer has become the dramaturge for this work, in which light is a crucial ally. Four dancers bend and interlock bodies as if human origami.
