Second part of Perséphoniques, necrophonic chronicles.
A sceno-phonic project with variable geometry, by sound creators, musicians and performers who are reinventing live radio. Thrills guaranteed, bras allowed.
Lenka Luptáková & Fanny Dupont (BE/FR)
Fanny Dupont is of Normand origin, and an artist of undefined appellation. Her earliest training was an answer to her first desire: to work in theatre. She trained in Paris at the Charles Dullin School and at the école Les enfants terribles. Within no time, she branched out into the audiovisual field as a graphic designer and assistant director. Music plays a key role in her work, for she is a band musician (The Gimmicks, Torrent d’Amour), and aspires to work in organising festivals (Rock the Bécasse, Festival de Cauberotte…). As these experiences and road-trips accumulated, a project has taken shape: that of a place that interweaves culture and agriculture, that of “aromatic music.” This place would offer training in herbal medicine, as well as audio recording and mixing facilities.
Lenka Luptáková is a Slovakian artist, polyglot, polymorphous, and a Brussels citizen by adoption. She studied science, fine arts (Rennes) and then theatre (ERAC), and has forged her artistic practice at the crossroads of several disciplines. She is sounding out the concept of urban disobedience and explores the ambiguity between documentary and fiction. She also works as an actress and dancer for various companies in France and Belgium. Concurrently, she works as a designer/performer, initiating various collaborations under the identity of FRACTALES FRANGYNES RADIO, aka FFR, a post-feminist multidisciplinary project. She writes, plunders archival materials, tinkers around with sound, and invents protocols for live performance, both radio and stage. She also reflects on language as a compulsive cruciverbalist and literary translator.
