 Off Cells

13 > 24 May 2019



Off Cells cells are activated at the periphery of the retina in the absence of light.
Off Cells imply that darkness is not inert, but is the result of a real activity of a part of our body.
The body experiences the architectures of shadow and light in an emotional micro-universe and becomes a sensitive, vibrant vehicle where past and present coexist.
Off Cells imagines different scenarios of a synesthetic journey, in which perceptual fields combine and intertwine with places of memory and incredible spaces.
It presents itself as a performance interacting with the audience and the performers and, in this environment, all our senses converge on a single complex polyphonic system.

 TACET Part Two

8>13 April 2019


Live: 12 April 2019 - 7:30pm

Reservations : scene44@nncorsino.com
                          06 75 80 51 51


TACET Part Two, a musical experience between heterotopy and heterochrony continues he experience of the first module developed in 2018 with the De Caelis ensemble. This auditory invitation associates heterotopic in situ and ex situ places, and alternates artistic and technological gestures in heterochronic timeshifts. By their multiplicity, the spatiotemporal cuts create the conditions of a fictional environment.
Musicians’ practices derived from the medieval repertoire become confrontation, alternation and creation. They extend to a larger corpus, especially with Jonathan Bell’s compositions, which propose to the audience a new way of listening that corresponds to the transitions of phases of musical history.

 The Blonde and the Arab

25 March > 5 April 2019



When two completely opposite people meet and fall in love with each other, we cannot prevent desire from existing and bonding them together.?Emmanuelle Jay and Mohammed Kouadri-Sameut, the choreographers, were inspired by Yolande Zauberman’s documentary film Would you have sex with an Arab?, which shows the nightlife of Tel Aviv’s young people in Jerusalem: Jews and Arabs, all citizens of one same country: Israel.

Liam Warren


11 > 22 February 2019



SPLIT SCREEN explores the space between the immediate physical body here and the imagined body projected elsewhere.
Two men, who never meet, emerge in separate territories bound by light.
The absence of the other opens a space of play, its form in constant evolution.
A responsive light design, sensitive noise sensors on the body, and a spacialization of the sound add layers to amplify the unfolding scene.

The De Caelis ensemble


14 > 19 May 2018



TACET, meaning it is silent, is a Latin term used in Western music to indicate to an instrumentalist that must remain silent during the entire duration of a movement or during a rather long fragment.
Silence, as a sound experience and a musical gesture, is revisited here with the help of new sound technologies, in a reinterpretation of medieval pieces and following in the footsteps of John Cage and Morton Feldman.
TACET is a part of the projects developed within PRISM laboratory (AMU-CNRS) as the topic "creations, practices and artistic researches".

Simonne Rizzo


12 > 23 March 2018


Miwa is a choreographed pictorial work.
Inspired by the themes of animation film director Hayao Miyazaki, Simonne Rizzo builds a choreographic world without reference to any particular story, but full of twists and leaving plenty of soft moments of suspension.
The four protagonists travel through the world of Miwa and carry fleeting childhood sensations with them.

Sandra Français


29 January > 9 february 2018



Onkalo means cave in Finnish.

Today we dig caverns to bury nuclear waste. This process frees a potential for questioning beyond our comprehension and will have repercussions on an infinite time scale.

The guardian of Onkalo is responsible for transmitting the message on which will depend the survival of future generations.

Through different modes of communication, those of the past and those of the present, the Guardian tries to imagine those of the future. He articulates and structures this new body language as a code to be deciphered.

The Guardian’s energy will resonate for a long time in this space. Will it be strong enough to find a channel, a medium for communicating with its receiver?

100,000 years later, the Snooper, a new Prometheus, discovers the cavern and the encrypted signals left by the Guardian.

11th > 21st September 2017


The fiction developed in the choreographic creation Ergonomics is centred on the current characteristics of the urban body, in order to propose intelligent solutions for the body of the future. It asks: what adaptations and uses of the body are planned for the smart city of the future?
The Ergonomics team is disguised as an innovative and fictional company.
This confusion between fiction and reality questions new marketing strategies and diverts the discourse of start-ups on innovation in the corporate world.

 SKIN - shooting

18th > 24th April 2017


Presentation :

SKIN – the original new work by choreographer Sarah Fdili Alaoui and filmmaker Tamara Erdé – questions the body’s consciousness, the skin’s sensitivity and otherness.
A technological device composed of physiological sensors records the two dancers’ muscular activities and heartbeats in real time.
As a second skin, these sensors of proximity and touch reveal an intimate aspect of the two performers and provide new boundaries for their bodies in an augmented space.

13th > 23rd March 2017


Presentation :

The world is made up of discontinuities, and every experience is born out of these discontinuities.
The forms and phenomena of the universe are expressed in a series of ONs and OFFs, which enables us to interpret and identify everything around us.
Our senses perceive firstly the visible part, the ON, yet reality would not be complete without the hidden OFF part.
The body and dance inevitably create a link between these two aspects.
"With this original new work, as a choreographer, I question the place where these bridges of completeness are located, how interpretation transcends what we call gender, and also what is impacted by this concept.
While accepting, of course, that certain differences or similarities are also induced by the dancers’ personalities."

 Les maîtres fous [The Mad Masters]

13th > 23rd February 2017

Presentation :

With this new creation, Dodescaden stages the states of the contemporary social body and, in so doing, continues its research, in reference to and in the light of Jean Rouch’s emblematic film, Les Maîtres Fous (1954).

So what would be our ceremony of contemporary possessions?

Driven by an intimate and collective necessity, the ritualisation of bodies in this choreographic process is a hybrid of stage performance, museum installation and documentary corpus.

 step of performing

19th > 21st December 2016


Presentation :

SKIN is a choreographic piece which incorporates an interactive device that is conceived like a second skin.
Physiological sensors on the dancers’ bodies define a relational system with image and sound.
The performers create a different space than that of their dance, reflected in real time by their inner movements and their most subtle sensations.
SKIN questions the body's consciousness activated by technological processes, the sensitivity of the skin, and the different interactions with the other, the foreign body.
New limits, boundaries and borders delineate a sensitive hybridization.

AI_am collective

 if self = other 

14th > 24th November 2016


Presentation :

The interdisciplinary collaboration AI_am explores how artificial intelligence (AI) and contemporary dance can inform and advance each other. Founded in 2013, the project brings together experts from the fields of dance, cognitive science, graphics and coding. AI_am uses various means of communication to raise questions about AI and its place in the world.

Currently, we are in the initial phase of creating a full-scale dance production that will premiere in the fall of 2017. The performance has the working title if self = other and will investigate the theme of the body and empathy as it relates to human-human interaction as well as human-AI interaction. Is the physical body exclusive to the ability to experience and express empathy? Is an AI capable of empathy? How can there be a more meaningful exchange between human and virtual bodies? How can these interactions transcend a representational mode to involve the audience in a more impactful way?

France - Korea Year 2015 - 2016 . Highlight in Marseille in May 2016

19th April > 30th June 2016


Presentation :

n + n corsino have produced two original new works on the relationships between calligraphy and choreography: Bangalore Fictions (India, 2013) and Signs (China, 2014).
They concern the animal and plant origins of the calligraphic line as a stylisation of forms in movement: the gesture forms a sign.
Korean calligraphy deconstructed Chinese calligraphy in the 15th century.
It recomposed itself as an alphabet, and its written form became geometric.
It underwent development described as scientific.
In Between the Lines, a dance is invented as a language and vice versa.

This original new work associates Korean and French artists in residence in SCENE44

 FLOW 612

14th > 24th 03 . 2016


Presentation :

FLOW 612 (created in 2016) is a musical, choreographic and kinetic experience designed for children. In a setting of leaves and flowers in an imaginary jungle, sound and light vary during a period of twenty minutes.
A multimedia object for dance, where some of the music is activated by the movements and presence of the children. Children are invited to observe the colour changes of light on a large printed canvas. They dance to sounds generated by 48 sensors on the floor.
A varied range of lights and rhythms, playing within a dance space, with different combinations of speeds, genres and colours: this creation is proposed as an installation in schools, performing arts venues and festivals open to children, focused on programming of innovative and transdisciplinary digital devices.

2nd November  > 13th November 2015


Presentation :

Album is an exploratory work that plays on the paradox between the over-abundance of the images to which we are exposed and those of which we are partly the authors.
The proposed performance goes on a journey into the depths of the psyche and of intimacy.
It is rooted in the distant meanders of our personal construction.
A fundamental fall enables us to be reborn with more intensity through the illusion of the stage.
Creative Coding, software developed for the Album performance, performs real-time analyses of the movements on stage, based on the dancers’ performative action and the colours of the various elements present.
- movement of the background : movement analysis process (without green background), real-time capture, produced by different algorithms (background, substitution and Frame Difference).
- movement of the pixels, materialized with Slitscan, uses digital filters to create animations.
- the Glitch, by non-conventional access to the computer’s memory, offers the possibility of designing unforeseeable and accidental images before the performance.

 Between the lines - interactive choreographic navigations

14th September > 30th October 2015

Presentation :

Between the lines is based on texts by Han Yu-joo and Claudine Galea, treated like a graphic novel in which words, images and sounds form mutual hybrids in an interactive narrative process and create the imaginary construction of gestures and body movements.

A series of choreographic sequences play on these concepts and use this motif as their basis. They will be related in a signature of movement – the movement that of the bodies and that of the writings – with the elements of the calligraphed texts in Korean, and will include the development of specific technological tools.

This creation involves Korean and French artists . It will be in the form of interactive installations. Scenographic lighting will create relations between the image systems and thearchitecture of the exhibition venue.

22nd > 26th June 2015


Presentation :

WHY ME is a journey through human and non-human memory.
WHY ME re-examines the human world of the 21st century through the filter of its violence.
Disappearance, fragmentation and dismemberment are central to this choral work, which was created during a long residency in Beirut and Rome in the UMAM NGO’s archives and in the Vatican’s reserve collections. WHY ME is a performance-installation which works on the perversion and incorporation of historical records through a process of collection and creation of drawings.
This series of works is in several different formats and combines crossovers of visual, audio and choreographic composition and writing. Drawing plays a primordial role within this process, as well as digital writing which conveys the work’s perceptive simultaneity.
The immersive experience of the journey is central to WHY ME at SCENE 44. It is experienced and shared by the performers and spectators by a 3D walkthrough that gathers together all the various formats of the series of works.
The bodies move from the studio floor to the screen and from the screen to the studio floor. The residency is an opportunity to place the living and the virtual in mutual tension, by blurring singular and collective experience. Here, the movement of the intuitive visions is conveyed by the Oculus Rift. This play of technological scales from low tech to high tech places the living world in new light, producing resonance in the permeable boundaries of this cross-cutting creation.

30th 03 > 9th 04 . 2015


Presentation :

Last residence at SCENE 44 of the Synekine Project, who will present the premiere of La brèche, the forthcoming work created by Richard Dubelski and Greg Beller, at the Péniche Opéra in Paris on 18 May 2015.


Sitting at a café table, a man is waiting to meet someone.
Very soon, he no longer knows who he is waiting for, or why.
While the numbers written on his telephone are erased, he investigates an identity that gradually deforms and reforms.


The Sound Space is a new musical instrument. Rather like a sampler is an empty box to be filled up with sound files, the Sound Space turns the physical space around the performer into a key area to place and to play his own voice samples. With the Sound Space, a performer literally spreads his voice around himself by the gesture, creating an entire sound scene while playing with it. The association of time and space by means of the gesture makes this instrument also suitable for dancers and body/movement artists, and for various applications.

5th > 7th December 2014

Presentation :

Acte sans Paroles was adapted from Samuel Beckett’s atypical play Act without Words by Dominique Dupuy and was first performed in February 2013 at the Théâtre National de Chaillot in Paris.
On the basis of the scheme, all the body movements and gestures dear to Dominique Dupuy shall be encoded by the image.
Together with the photographer and film-maker François Delebecque, we will go and look for their lines, angles, curves and arabesques, ins and outs, and ups and downs.
ACT is part of the project Aujourd’hui à deux mains composed of Pascale Houbin’s series of gestural portraits in the world of work.

3rd episode from the series Greg Beller

Synekine project - Collective memory palace

6th > 10th  October 2014

Recipient of IRCAM’s 5th Edition Musical Research Residency Program, 2014

Presentation :

This project merges gesture and voice through technical innovation.

Researchers, developers and performers connect to enhance the body’s language.

The Collective Memory Palace is a mnemonic technique that went out of use after the Middle Ages. A speaker could memorize a lengthy speech by distributing it into different spaces of an imaginary place. The Collective Memory Palace is the choreography brought about by two improvisers evolving within a new device : Sound Space. 

Metaphor installation, sound sculpture, this place offers the public a prospect to call upon another’s memory.

Homeostasis : Flamenco new wave at the second floor

16th > 26th September  


Presentation :

“Attempt at reprogramming my body’s ROM (Read Only Memory). A technical and surreal dialog is established between the computer and myself.

I have the desire to recode my body through the world of Flamenco and programing language."


The voice recognition computing device is an interactive installation that enables the dancer, in an automated mode, to control stage devices by voice activation. It has been elaborated with Alexis Nasret and Frédéric Bechet, both researchers in fundamental computing sciences at the  LIF-CNRS of University of Aix Marseille (AMU). The development of this program sits within the framework of the students’ second year Masters research papers in Fundamental and Applied Computing Sciences.

“Corps/Non-Lieu” in “event”  

23rd and 24th September 2014 at 6pm Upon reservation


First prize Creation Award at the Festival Bains Numériques 2014

Presentation :

“Corps/Non-Lieu” evolves around three modules with a camera being the central figure. The tracking technique enables the dancer’s movements to be captured by the camera lens that sets off a translation process into sound sequences and real time projected images. Due to the proximity with the dancers, the spectator is involved in the conversion process where real never ceases to tip over into a future in the making.”

Projet Synékine  

stage 1  13th > 18th January 2014

Presentation :

The Synekine Project brings together performance and scientific research to create new ways to express ourselves. The neologism “synekinesia”, is built from the Greek terms “syn”, (union) and “kinesis” (movement). By analogy in “synaesthesia”, the phenomenon in which two or more senses of perception are associated, the “synekinesia” would reflect our capacity to associate two or several motor senses. In the Synekine project, the performers develop a fusional language involving voice, hand gestures and physical movement. This language is augmented by an interactive environment made of sensors and other Human-Computer Interfaces…
