The origin of the project Objet dansant n° (à définir) comes from the desire to be able to present a dance from which the body-material is missing.
I wanted to make visible the "dancing" idea that a contemplation/hypnosis time would lead to an imaginary reasoning and/or a reflection on absence.
also the desire to bring together my principal activities (movement, costume, sound) into one project.
The image of the wind in the curtains during the siesta, the idea of everyone's fantasies, Paul Virilio's "Esthétique de la disparition", (maybe some mobiles from my childhood) have been with me and still are with me today on this play.
Objet dansant n° (à définir) is a project relying on the fragility and the simplicity of the proposition.
Then, it seems important to me to recontexctualise "object" every other performance.
Thus, 'hanging/time/progress/material" are modified according to the architectural place.

Siamese dresses tied together by the arms are suspended above a path marked out with fans.
While the electronic music rises, the air carries along the pair of net dresses.
Thrilling duo indeed, this 12 minutes dance of air and material.

He entitled his work Objet dansant n° (à définir) Performer for Mark Tompkins, this choreographer-costume designer is a perfectly "unaccustomed" artist as Marie-Thérèse Allier, who is director of the Festival Les Innacoutumés of the Ménagerie de Verre, likes them.
