Book "Apparemment ce qui ne se voit pas/Compagnie Ex Nihilo"

To celebrate the 20th anniversary of the company Ex Nihilo, we wanted to create a book retracing our process around the project Apparemment ce qui ne se voit pas .

Apparemment, ce qui ne se voit pas is a long process of research that led the company Ex Nihilo in 11 cities in Europe, South Korea, North Africa and the Middle East to meet abandoned, neglected places, to put there the alone and lonely body of the dancer and watch how it transforms and reveals the city, each landscape becoming a character itself. A meticulous collection of images, sounds and impressions was conducted at the end of each trip.

This is Martine Derain, photographer and friend of the company for many years, which has made this monograph published by les Éditions communes
