April 2020 : New color especially prepared for the Sismograf Dance festival 2020 in Olot in Catalonia (Spain) canceled due to the quarantine triggered by the Covid 19 international health crisis. Video film designed, shot and edited in 3 days at the Labo Novo, International Performance Art Station in Reillanne (Provence, France).
An exploring character invents an ephemeral and elastic gesture to escape, weaving in color with everyday life. Tribute to George Gershwin’s musical Blue, to the burlesque of silent films, superheroes and Loïe Füller’s Serpentine Dance… revealing the soul’s proper place. As well as a wink at the Coronavirus itself present in our lives and screens since early 2020, as personification and new “barrier” gesture against possible facial recognition measures.
Music: Rhapsody in Blue, George Gershwin – Conception & Performance: Gilles Viandier – Camera: Maria Estevens M. – Editing: Caté Veleski – Production: Sismograf Dance Festival, Olot (Catalonia, Spain) 2020 – https://www.sismografolot.cat/ & Association Promenade d’artiste.
