10 to 14 May

Concept: Paulo Duarte Artistic collaboration: Renaud Herbin and Julika Mayer Sound and interfaces: Morgan Daguenet Lighting design: Fabien Bossard

A residence of artistic creation from Paulo, "PLUG", will take place during FIMFA.

"PLUG" is in its initial phase of creation, it intends to challenge the wandering of the virtual point of view, putting this notion in challenge, under the gaze of new communication technologies. The new uses of the internet reclassify the notion of wandering and are open to new perceptions of space/time and subjectivity. How are we going to wander in the network itself? The virtual wandering passes through multiplier effects of space, time and identities. In a heteronymous game, in which “I can” travel, communicate, share, transform myself. Each one chooses their image, their identity, between the false and real. The manipulation, spontaneity and its application in the network, causing problems between what is intimate and what is public.

"PLUG" intends to create on stage a virtual situation, a situation in loco. How to produce a space-time and a presence state multiplied?
