Status 
AVAILABLE FOR TOUR

Year of creation
2022

Duration
4-HOUR CONTINUOUS PERFORMANCE INSTALLATION, AMBULATORY AND VARIABLE DURATION FOR THE SPECTATOR

À l'est de Nod unfolds in 3 performance-installations within which spectators will wander at their own pace through La forêt, L'errant·e and L'abîme.

This evolving creation, with thirteen performers, proposes an experiential reflection on the physical and psychic limits, both intimate and political, that we share.

The artist and project leader Andréane Leclerc is inspired by the contortion she has been practicing for more than twenty years to create a score where different nature-body move, more instinctive and cosmic than social and disciplinary. Distinct from the social-body, the nature-body evolves on the periphery of social and institutional spaces, within a living memory whose ramifications are porous and shared.

The creation thus questions our relation to the bodily, social and institutional space, in order to explore the utopian borders of a place made of wanderings and movements. The question "how contortion informs non-contortionist bodies" marks the starting point of this singular artistic approach that meditates and questions the concept of limit as a structure. If this phenomenon seems non-existent in nature, how do limits travel between bodies and from one body to another, through our sensations, our ideas and our realities? What can emerge from a meeting between the open, porous and moving limits of the nature-body, and those protective, systemic and structured of the social-body?
