Side by side : an audiovisual performance

2013-10-17 21:27:43

This is an audiovisual performance by the L:ED collective dealing with existential doubt, inner universes and the ambiguity of the feelings.

Side by side seeks to illustrate the interpenetration between the real and the imaginary by linking a performer and his image through a live recording of the performance projected on the space where the performer evolves.

Dorianne describes our work with this words:

"I got lost in life. I do not know how or why it happened . But one day I woke up and I was there. Nowhere . It seemed unreal. I liked it. I found myself in front of me . "Side by side".
Many things, when they are real do not cause any pleasure. However, they succeed in the game of phantasms.
Many emotions, even troubling, can be a source of enjoyment.
So like children playing, we create an imaginary world that we take seriously. It endows large amounts of affect, although clearly separated from reality. But what is real? What is imagination? What if they found themselves "side by side" ?
It's like a dream. We mobilize our intuitive, creative, imaginative and contemplative capacities. It thus makes this dream a paradoxical means of access to an illuminated perceived reality both in its infinite lightness and absolute strangeness. To become "side by side" .

Confusion of time, space, colors and identities. Interaction with the self who is none other than me. Or my image. Disembodied. "Side by side"..."

In this piece Dorianne makes the video while I make the sound both reacting to each other and to the performers movements.
