Présentation

Three sections give shape to this creation focussed on the human body, whose materiality, sexual energy and finitude are explored through the artwork of Robert Mapplethorpe, Caravaggio and Francis Bacon.

 

Without being restrictive, the dramaturgy is built around these three visual artists in whose work the body represented a major challenge by being simultaneously the object of impulses and frustrations, a medium for exultation and affliction, as well as being their pet subject. The performance thus explores human physicality by following the strikingly divergent approaches these artists developed: in Mapplethorpe, a quasi-classical, photographic and realistic vision; in Caravaggio, a resolutely baroque conception, and in Bacon, a fragmented and fragmented perception. The use of costumes, make-up and lighting, scenography, enhances the thematic background through an artificial treatment which astonishingly contrasts with a choreography intensely focussed on physical presence without being affected by what lurks around it. The music, composed in tandem, also acts upon movements whose sequences are elaborated without its support.
