Souffles#1 embodies life. The work shows through an extremely light veil and moving bodies the flows of life.
Souffles#1, a short and performative form, constitutes the evolution imagined by the visual artist Laurent Valera of his monumental installation Mémoire exhibited at the Archives of Bordeaux Métropole in 2019. His meeting with the choreographer Christine Hassid today allows this duo to artists to propose a hybrid project between two worlds, that of the visual arts and that of contemporary dance.

Souffles#1 embodies life. The work shows through an extremely light veil and moving bodies the flows of life. This fluid material becomes a dynamic water surface that feeds on its environment. We are witnessing the first times of origins, those times when the first combinations of simple elements have, little by little, in water, given life. Bodies become shapes and vice versa. The rhythms combine one time to better break the next moment. The complexity intensifies and organizes itself despite everything. Attraction, repulsion, inhale, exhale, ebb, flow. The work is built around the causal relationships between cohesion and freedom. Souffles is finally a choreographic experiment linked to the elaboration of living mechanisms, linking events to build themselves in real time. The dancers lead and undergo the piece at the same time, the space participating with them in the creation which is renewed each time.
