“Dépays” is an oblique experience dealing with time, the survival of memories, the creative vulnerability of beings. Two figures, Simbi and Janus, are having fun, enjoy each other, lose their way, confront and kill each other and are endlessly reborn… constantly seeking out a new prey to re-start everything.
Elusive, they play with the localization of time-like landscapes, they alone decide what should matter, but not without the commitment of those they address. One guardian of the waters, the other of the passage, with their gifts they cunningly weave language to save by clairvoyance, invite to sleep, talk about dehumanization, lead nowhere.
Ife Day (FR)
Born in Port-au-Prince, Haiti in 1987, Ife Day is a performer and poet. They unfold a hybrid and choral universe that mixes body texts, videos, installations and dance. Originating in Creole spaces, Ife Day develops with their baggage a corporal and spatial vocabulary highlighting various forms of alienation: social, political or even familial.
Their protean playground becomes the place where they can materialize the poetic, the deviant, the textures of digression. Sensitive to dream movements and the theme of displacement, Ife Day interrogates and traverses the cartographies inherited from dominated and dominant bodies in order to encourage metamorphoses.
