Embody the work, be in synch with it – that is the challenge launched by Aurélie Pedron in her new piece Antichambre.
This sensorial, immersive experience invites the spectator to perceive the world in new ways, to comprehend more than what we observe with our eyes. By breaking beyond the senses to a point where time and space dissolve, the audience becomes the embodiment of the piece, its guardians and confidants. This sensitive yet disconcerting adventure blurs boundaries between the body and the dance. Is what you experience part of you, or is it outside your body?
With its reinvented kinesthetic space, dynamic lighting and sound vibrations, Antichambre, with its emphasis on sensations, allows the spectators/participants a release from their tenets of perception, thereby launching an invitation: Take the time to explore your environment. When the vision blurs, space for discovery opens up.
Aurélie Pedron likes to imagine works where the audience discovers new ways of perceiving the world, overstepping the bias of sight in order to grasp more than what meets the eye. By breaking beyond our blinkered inclinations and social conventions, participants can rediscover how they relate to the self and to others.
