The solo projects are created in response to invitations for special occasions or on our own initiative. They are often contextualized, site-specific creations, inspired by a specific place, object, musical piece or art work. They are the fruit of our collaboration with other artists : musicians, visual artists, authors and others.
Performance inspired by the exhibition Hybrid Identities by visual artist Maria Peña Coto on nomadic, travelling, expatriate and immigrant women. In collaboration with musician/singer Xiao Xiao, we imagined a performance nourished by our own experiences of migration, retracing the fundamental stages of displacement: leaving home, the hope and difficulty of the journey, the encounter with the Other, the transformation of oneself, the (re)departure for a new journey.
This performance was presented at the Galerie du Génie de la Bastille, Paris, on May 1, 2022.
Dance solo performance inspired by sculptor Yiyan Zhou’s “Greffe” art jewelry series. The dance is inspired by both the forms of the artworks, spiral, circular, waving forms, as well as by the quality of the materials used, the smoothness, the fragility, the plasticity of porcelain and bronze.
It was presented at the closing event of Yiyan Zhou’s exhibition in the MiniMasterpiece Gallery (Paris), on April 21, 2022, with live music by flutist Xipeng Guo and reading of Yiyan Zhou’s poems.
Candida ut lilium
Piece created in collaboration with Les Elancées, vocal trio of medieval music and contemporary improvisation. For this piece we have specifically worked on the song Candida virginitas ut lilium that the singers deconstruct and recompose in real time on stage, to accompany the dance which explores in a poetic way the different aspects of white color as a cultural and religious symbol.
