Di(x)parue is a living essay inspired by phenomenology. This study plays with the concepts of the Dasein, prejudice, subject/object relations and the separation of the body and the soul amongst others. The play builds a real-time physical dialogue between the performer and the spectator.
Di(x)parue is a moment when an audience and a woman cross paths in a place and time. One being part of the other. Her body becomes the frontier between you and her. Tense in this space between the two worlds, she listens and follows a path that is traced by the search of the rightness of the moment. She lives the frontier and builds, every night, a silent corporal dialogue. The form taken by her body is only a distorted reflection of the encounter. Her body is an empty body, a place of passage, a mirror projecting an image impossible to seize: an abstract form, ephemeral and unique that will disappear with the end of the performance.
