The Polymorph Extra is a multi artistic live performance conceived and led by musician and painter Quentin Paquignon. Motivated by his own exploration traversing the many different ambits of expressions for arts, Paquignon designed The Polymorph Extra as a support to create art with the many different tools and languages he has find until now, a time to play with the best creative artists he has been meeting on his own trips, and a dynamic space to explore and have fun with music and art lovers.

Part of the music of each session is improvised during the exploration of sounds that aim to communicate with the colors and textures projected on videos, lights, like an interactive dancing of graphic arts and music.

The Polymorph Extra is a circuit of arts, a live music installation and a trekking trip through colors, shapes, sounds, and textures. Artists performing live, constructing on each session a multidimensional world to discover and explore with the audience.
