A corporal kaleidoscope for a bold public!
MIRE is a twelve dancers performance installation that presents itself as a corporeal kaleidoscope. Taking hold on movement so as to create an image that is as contemplative as it is disturbing. It also places the spectator-voyeur at the very core of the experience. The audience is led to observe female and male bodies multiplying through vertical slots of a surrounding all-encompassing structure, reminiscent of a zoetrope. The spectator can also lie on the ground and experience a living fresco reflected on the giant mirror located above the dancers. Their bodies are naked so that the textures of the flesh can be at once magnified and exalted.
