Jean-Antoine Bigot’s drawings and sketches feed the annotations of the piece about the movements and silhouettes of the dancers. Painting on the floor, with a trowel on wooden slabs, allows a more physical approach. The act of painting involves a commitment of the body, a taking up of space, crossed by the impetus of a gesture, of a spirit, dance is not far away… In this solo, everything is in motion: the painter, the objects, and the painting. More than the painting, it is the material of the elements that matter. Raw materials – plaster tiles, tape, wooden plates – clutter the space to become partners in the dance. The character is both a dancer inhabited by his movement and a painter who responds with colour and line, gradually revealing the painting to the audience.

“You will then have told me in the dance

what the colour of the asphalt is

and if you see something of it on the canvas

and if the poem clings to the energy of the dance

and if it is with the same body that we pass

from dance to poem

from dance to painting

from painting to poem

from poem to dance

etc.”

A poem by Alexis Pelletier
