Chambre(s) d'Hôtel

Fri Apr 09, 2010 00:00 - Mon Apr 05, 2010


Live video
Live dance-video streaming at 8.30pm the 9th and 10th of April


Performance at the Motel Mozaique Festival in Rotterdam


In this new creation, the interdisciplinary transitscape collective (led by Pierre
Larauza and Emmanuelle Vincent) explores the relationship between fiction
and reality in a public space and with a high degree of participation.
Chambre(s) d’Hôtel is an urban installation combining a performance and a
radio interview. A single architectural object, a hybrid and technoid caravan,
combines a piece of fiction and a reality which are layered on top of each other
during the 3 x 50 minutes of the performance.
Chambre(s) d’Hôtel is a travelling hybrid device, an urban transplant that is
experienced as a transit location loaded with possibilities, a breaking moment
where each encounter defines the next day. Experimental film, dance and a
testimonial are layered together, forming a narrative puzzle in this tense piece
of work that is all about identities and territory.
