Stuttgarter premiere, last april:

Program note:

dedicated to those who raised for a more humane world,
from Cairo to Santiago de Chile, passing by Montréal
as well as to Krystina Marcoux, percussionist

Nudity as revolt. The body of a human being, not as merchandise or object, but as a projection of a “That’s enough!”;
as a place from which the sacred character belongs only to oneself;
as a place of tension between the one looking and the one looked, the occupying and the occupied.

The body of a musician, exposed/unveiled in a performance.

Point of departure: Egyptian activist Alia Magda Ehmahdy, naked against the salafists.
Point of departure: the Arabic spring extended to the country of origin of my father.
Point of departure: a mixed-bread composer Quebecois/Coptic agnostic in front of a musician’s body which movements in time and space create meaning.

The project: a fifteen minutes performance, maximum thirty, involving a percusionnist.


Connecting thread: music and theatricallity.

Connecting thread: the setting in motion of a musician’s body giving birth to a poetical universe centered around the tension between sound and sight.
