Created by the multidisciplinary artist Line Nault, SuperSuper is a playful yet philosophical piece that employs movement that speaks and words that move.
In this three-part epic, two performers enact a dizzying gestural composition as they search for a mythical number that provides the key to deciphering the universe, redirecting digital code into poetry.
Inspired by the search for the ultimate number as well as the principles of body resonance in space and projection into digital space, SuperSuper is a triptych composed of Super8, Super réalité and Super N64. Body, sound and image are modelled on and articulated through a tracking system. and movements and gestures slowly build a parallel world, an augmented space, a sort of data bank. The protagonists work under surveillance that keeps them prisoners of the game in which they are evolving and which eventually culminates in a rereading of Mallarmé’s Un coup de dés jamais n’abolira le hasard. The piece synthesizes all the choreographer’s artistic preoccupations, built as it is around systems, coding, generative flow, movement and words – movement that speaks and words that move – catapulting physical, sound and visual elements into areas where perception is completely transfigured.

Là (...) is an immersive sensory experience that is intense and mysterious, where logic gives way to sensations and feeling.
