From Tuesday, August 24 to Friday, August 27, the Play series’ eight double programs carve out space for experimentation inside Place des Arts’ Cinquième Salle. Play highlights the exploratory, visceral and immersive character of contemporary artists in digital art, audiovisual creation, and electronic music.
Entanglement is basically an artistic project at the crossroads of scientific research inspired by the concept and properties of entanglement in quantum physics and quantum fields theory. The sources of inspiration of France Jobin and Markus Heckmann are based on the two current dominant theories explaining quantum entanglement: the Copenhagen interpretation and the multiverse (quantum decoherence). In addition to these two theories, there is the fluidity of time and the principle of quantum entanglement. The Entanglement performance is inspired by the same theories; an ambitious immersive experience which will be presented as a world premiere at the 22nd edition of MUTEK.
Immersive performance merging music, dance and visual arts, TSUNAMI plunges deep into the core of our weaknesses. Akin to the devastating phenomenon, TSUNAMI submerges audiences with sound textures from hydrophones manipulated in real time by Salomé Perli, starkly contrasted with erratic no-input loops. Jules Roze’s visuals highlight Stefania Skoryna’s flowing choreography, manifesting the quake’s raw power. TSUNAMI invites us to let go by reminding us that this catastrophe may simply be the result of the endless movement of life.
