FEBRUARY 1ST & 3RD @ 7 PM
Tempest is a live audio and video performance by Franck Vigroux and Antoine Schmitt.
Just after the big bang, the universe was completely shapeless, filled with matter and energy, but irregularities were born, which became atoms, suns and planets…Within the primitive soup on Earth, indistinct molecules started to group as bacterias, to become life, animals, humans…Tempest recreates the sound and fury of these original maelstroms within which it searches for the origin of form. As an audio and visual performance, Tempest associates the analog instruments of Franck Vigroux with the visual algorithms of Antoine Schmitt, to create a real system-universes of pure chaos, that can be seen in the movements of millions of particles and can be heard through the roaring of air. By manipulating the internal forces of this chaos, the performers give birth to audio and visual shapes that develop in time, with more or less stability, more or less evidence.
FEBRUARY 2ND @ 7 PM
Centaure is a live audio and video performance by Franck Vigroux (music) and Kurt d’Haeseleer (video).
Centaure is a postdigital road trip to a dystopic future. It’s a virtual ‘safari’ to a world populated by cloned creatures and mutations of species that seem to have been artificially rebuilt from contaminated DNA. Man has disappeared, absorbed by technology, which has become anthropomorphic. Everything breathes, smells, rot, transforms … The grass, the trees, the water, the clouds, everything is contaminated with a barely visible, but omnipresent technology. Human flesh has exploded and has morphed with machines to give birth to a perverted new nature.
