"Rouge sang" is a metaphoric tale immersing the viewer in a dreamy shadow performance, combining analogue projection and sounds. The visual landscape is exploring a series of red objects projected into light with overhead and slide projectors. The space is filled with red moving shadow diffracting a collection of light objects, paper cuts, organic slides, composed as a visual collage evolving inside a space bubble.
The soundscape is produced with handmade pickup microphones amplifying cords, metallic objects, theremins and ebow… The vibration of the sound is slowly modified with digital effects turning the experience in electro acoustic drift, where the action of the performers produce a sonic improvisation. The experience of reality slowly drifts into a ritual mythological narrative, immersing the spectator in surrealist audio-visual shadow play.
The performance is a sort of shamanic experience on how to transform reality into fiction exploring the idea of catharsis as an essential mode of survival.
How can reality be transferred into an immersive fiction? The image becomes another reality that can be release from the memory and generate the necessary oblivion of the unbearable lightness of the being.
