2013 [GREATER PARIS PREMIER]
Dance-digital arts performance
In Japanese, hakanaï means ephemeral and fleeting, fragile and transient, somewhere between dream and reality.
An ancient word, it evokes the intangible, the stuff of the human condition and its precariousness, but also interconnected with nature.
Hakanaï is a choreographed performance by a dancer moving around inside a white tulle cube.
Four synchronised videos project onto the tulle a visual universe in constant flux, generated in real time and interpreted as a ‘digital score’.
The dancer’s body enters into a dialogue with these moving images, simple, abstract black-and-white shapes.
The sound composition is also performed live to produce a perfect sensory display of audio, visuals and dance.
At the end of the dance performance, the spectators are invited to move around and interact with the installation.
