An unfamiliar, melancholic atmosphere hovers over the retro carpet in a living room. The tense antennas of curious theremins wait to respond to the discrete movements of the performers in front of a few dozen privileged spectators. The theremins, early electronic-music instruments, capture through their frequencies the fantasy of three women in search of a lost futurism.

 

Sensual performance or anachronistic reverie, Anne Thériault’s improbable Récital is a choreography for transmitting bodies traversed by ambient waves. The organ and the beatbox vibrate to the soft poetry of the quirky electro. Flashlights create expressionistic shadow plays. The glow of a cinema of anguish arises around a kitsch tableau. There is a malicious pleasure in entering the enchanted domain of objects that we are fond of and that haunt us. A homemade choreographic recital, which awakens a kind of comic strangeness and nostalgia for defunct technologies.

At Chapelle du Cap, you can also discover an exhibition by Julie Lacroix, textile artist and craftswoman.
