This choreographic piece was conceived on the project Go Home, or 4 maneres de quedar-se sense sostre (4 ways to end up without a roof) in which 3 directors and one choreographer made a piece each on the same topic, put on stage by a single scenographer selected for this project. The starting issue has been the following:
What can evict us, push us out of our home? What is an expulsion and how does it happen?
Interpreted by a male and a female dancer, Juliette Louste’s choreographic proposition questions the way in which the media’s images invade us in our own inside. Omnipresent, alienating, they manipulate us, progressively overrun our home’s space, until the moment they take us to the door.
On string quartet classical music, an interweaving is made through the dancers installed in front of their TV, questioning then the position of the viewer.
All these screens and the worlds of images linked to them, are still here to distract us, or have acquired a power of control over our representations, our objective as well as subjective reality?
Influencing us consciously and subconsciously, can they not take us “out of ourselves”, faking our free will, endangering our existential security feeling?
It is towards this invasion creating imbalance that the dancers take us in the meticulously written and composed sequences, in a musical and dramaturgic level, creating a global gestural corpus very close to the one that could be contemplated during the same length seating on a sofa in front of the television…
