From the material body to the conceptual body, from the living to the virtual, the various points of view developed in this creation-exhibition by choreographer Isabelle Van Grimde, offer the spectator-visitor an unfamiliar experience and a pathway to perceiving the body in new ways. Dance, text (presented via various media), installations and visual or media works will be placed in resonance and tension within an encompassing architecture that further multiplies the views of the body produced by artists of varying geographical and cultural backgrounds. Designed in collaboration with architect and set designer Anick La Bissonière and composer Thom Gossage, the visual and sound space highlights the path of the performers and the spectator-visitors.
