New experience for public space
«In this project «Gravitational Waves», I want the spectator to be like an observer of a large-scale volume exploration in public space.
I would like to create a bubble of perception during this experiment, which drags the spectator-observer in a gravitational, visual, choreographic and sonorous daydream.» - Fabrice Guillot
A choreographic exploration in the heart of a plastic installation
A visual object, alive and inhabited.
The Gravitational Waves is zooming on the dancing body revealed by the amplification of the sound and wich invades the performance space.
Sharing with the audience the sensation of reversal, this physical effect wich feel the vertical dancers on the wall, is now possible! An amazing feeling of a space opened to dance in all its dimensions.
The experience transforms the usual perception of the site by revealing a part of the invisible and the non-audible.
Create and inhabit a space of multiple dimensions
Vincent Brédif’s sculpture creates a foreground in front of the facade, and offers an in-depth space for the dance. Dancer’s bodies in this space can then interact with the effect of the 3D images. The shadow of this inhabited sculpture, projected on several surrounding walls, anchors this gravitational experience in the chosen performance space.
A sound and plastic work
The vibration of our ropes revealed by sensors, allow to hear the sound of a fall in slow motion, a side aerobatic, the extraction of a body from its support, steps on the wall. Dance produces the sonorous environment, a partition. A sound device allow to immerse the spectator in a sonorous bath of dance.
These images can model the architecture, open it, make it turn. Image ignores the gravity. In interaction with the dancers’ bodies we are able to play with this «weightlessness» of the image and create a virtual gravity.
