Participative performances at Centre des arts de la scène Jean-Besré – Septembre 10, 2022 – 8 pm & 9 h 30 pm
NOUS SOMMES LES FILS ET LES FILLES DE L’ÉLECTRICITÉ (NSFFDE)
Combining performance, participative live show and digital arts, Nous sommes les fils et les filles de l’électricité (NSFFDE) is a radical interdisciplinary proposal. In a space plunged into obscurity, the faces of the audience are lit by a set of pico-projectors. Each person’s head is “cut off” from his or her body and placed in such a way that the gaze of each person is focused on the other participant, seated directly opposite. In this environment, the faces of the spectator-participants are illuminated and modified by video projections. Behavioral instructions are transmitted to them through headsets, in order to allow the development of a narrative in which they become the members of this fictitious community. Playing their own role, the audience members will explore themes of personal and cultural identity, collective and political becoming through the filter of empowerment dynamics. Through an aesthetic and a technological deployment evoking the experiments of mental manipulation under psychotropic drugs set up by the CIA in the 50s, NSFFDE involves its audience in a disturbing set-up in order to reprogram it.
