Pas (si) fragile

Bruits de craquements d’os et articulations

Moelle is a performance that stems from a search for body behaviors, dealing with the relationship to the back, to pain first and foremost, but also to the absurdity of the movements it makes the artist make.
It's a body presented in all its fragility, effort and stubbornness, a performance that raises the question of the body as a place of negotiation, exhaustion and strangeness.
The back is introduced as the driving force behind gestures and intentions, but also as a producer of readings. A reading of space through the face of the back. Pain motivates movement here: it's because the back is in pain that it moves, that it stretches. As it stretches, it generates noise, sound, the sound a back would make. What sound does it make when it's crushed, when it turns, when it's marrowy?
Moelle is a wandering performance that disturbs ears and poeticizes gesticulations.
Sound mocks image.
It's the vertebral column taking the back for a fool. It's a stratagem.
