La disparition des choses

Amélie Rajotte


La disparition des choses

What if Nature no longer existed? Cut off from this essential force, the performers Amélie Rajotte and Marie-Philippe Santerre try to keep the memory of a vanished environment alive.

Supported in their quest by two musicians and the landscape projections of Nelly-Ève Rajotte, they touch, tear and stir, digging through materials, surfaces and invisible reliefs. Hands explore the void, bodies are constantly redirecting themselves. To the sounds of the modular synthesizers of Olivier Landry-Gagnon and the “doctored” instruments of Stéphanie Castonguay, they establish a strong phantom presence that, with movement, compensate for a palpable absence as they attempt to reactivate faded sensations and provoke a strange connection with what is no more.
