In Polymorphic Microbe Bodies by Hanna Sybille Müller and Erin Robinsong, the audience is choreographed by the experience. Alternately a germ, a bacterium, and an observer, the spectator is at once the canvas, the artwork, and the experiencer in this multisensory space where dance is not only seen but also perceived with all of one’s body. 

The scenography in Hugo Dalphond’s Étude sur la pénombre enables the study of the spectator-performer relation of copresence in a dim setting, through which a dramaturgy of darkness emerges. The limited perception of the space and of the artist’s movement blurs the borders between materiality and optical illusion. 

SOIE by Hélène Messier asks how does one inhabit immobility? Evoking butoh and art modelling, Messier is looking to reach a meditative state that she shares with the audience. Based on imaginary and sensitive impulses, she allows her body to be so that it can become a work of art, a landscape.
