INTERSTITIAL is a proposition of improvised audiovisual performance. It takes shape in the mutual, responsive listening of the moment. Supported by a simple yet filled with possibilities setting, a changing pattern of light, sounds, images and movements, is weaved according to our interactions. There is no pre-existing material, whether in video images or choreographic phrasing. Images are created through the manipulation of small light sources and a video camera connected to a video projector. The music builds from sounds captured during the performance, or other sonic textures created and transformed live with the help of modular synths. The dance births itself from the close examination and the combination of all these elements, and from everything that circulates through and between our three bodies at the moment.

We are working on the idea of «interstice»: a gap, or a span, this very space in-between sounds, bodies, images, in between everything that is constituting us as living beings and constituting the world surrounding us. In those interstitial spaces circulates energy that connects us together, that enables us to communicate, and that keeps us in touch with our very own self as well. In this oscillation, where the relationship to our body and imagination fluctuates, how do we come closer to or move away from our human quality? And if our boiling heart could be touched, unveiled, as a simple matter, how do we stay sensitive to the friendship of things? And how memory could be weaving from instant to instant the remembrance of presence or absence?

INTERSTITIAL is based on the importance of sensibility. It builds itself on various movements - the movements of the bodies, of the sound and light waves, of the flows and ebbs of energies – and establishes an intimate communication, beyond cultural and geographic differences. What will be created in real-time will manifest itself through the alternation of concrete and abstract expression, made possible by a consenting and fluid passing between all the senses, like a three voices ode.
