The project relies on the artistic practice of contemporary dance and butoh, and approaches transition (in its widest sense) in a somatic way. It intends to reveal both personal and more expansive (ecological and social) aspects of transition. In its final form, it will be a solo dance performance (site-specific with a possbile stage version). In its actual form, it takes the form of a participative performative walk in a natural environment startinig by night and finishing at the sunrise.


The title of this participatory walk, dance performance and ritual is a poetic expression of the time of dawn, the time of day when, for a brief moment, due to the special lighting conditions, we cannot see clearly and the boundaries of things become blurred. Dawn is a moment of transition, when the old no longer exists and the new is in the process of being born.


The event starts with a silent walk while the group approaches the exact location of the performance. The simple instructions aim to help the participants to get connected (to their own bodies, to the environenment, and to the group), to change their sense of time and their rhythm of existence. The dance performance will be inspired by the theme and location of the event but also by the personal objects brought by the participants that are important to them and relate to transition and transformation.


The performance finishes at sunrise and the event ends with a common breakfast on site.

Left Behind (2020 - 2021)

Since the human race has been present on Earth, it has transformed its environment. Now days, this phenomenon has reached a critical proportion, but nature is not idle either: as soon as people leave an area, nature immediately recaptures it. « Left behind » takes place at the once man-made and now abandoned environment where nature has begun to take (back) its place – in places in transformation.


The performance deals with the subjects of the transformation of the human-nature interrelation and the extension of the sense of beauty. It investigates the questions of the ‘being abandoned’ state: in nature, in society, in the world. The spectacle also tries to revive the spectators' sensitivity (often lost in our daily life, especially in the city) by offering them a unique experience through the space, dance and sound universe.


« Left behind » is also inspired by the writings and thoughts of Gilles Clément ("Manifeste du tiers paysage") and Masaki Iwana ("The body and dancing at the core of being left behind").

Shift: work done in a specific period of time. The period of time when workers are assigned to the same slot. A group of people working at the same time. There is day, night or even weekend shift.


The title refers to the working method and the locations where the project has been carried out (out-of-use factories, industrial and other production sites). The inspiration for the project comes from working together, at the same time and for the same productive process and purpose, often at the same stage, and from the (often abandoned or nowadays used for other purposes) location. The imprint of times gone by, monotony and long-lasting process(es) are also themes of the work.


In May 2022, in a disused mill, the Moulin de Constance (Pons, France), the three artists immersed themselves and their collective artistic process for 24 hours without interruption, under the title Les 3_8. About the 24 hour production :
“The intention: we wanted to play with space and time, to test our gestures, our movement and stillness, our images and our music, our abundance and absence, our noise and silence. To create a world with no limits, only the need to explore, to (re)observe and to surprise. We wanted to loiter, to overdo everything a little, not sleep much, not eat much, not talk much, let the day, then the night, then the day again, accompany our work. We wanted to make it happen, we wanted to build it, we wanted to play with all the ideas we had, and we wanted to explore new ones. We also wanted to laugh and have fun.”


Residency at the Vázsonyi Mill in Hungary in July 2023. The research and creative process took place in two separate locations: dancer in Nagyvázsony, while musician and video artist in France, in constant online contact with each other.

A site-specific dance performance took place at the mill and was broadcasted live in the exhibition space of L’Atelier IMIS in Montignac-sur-Charente. The broadcast is also be available online.

Marguerite au cachot (2016 - 2017)

"Marguerite au cachot" is an electroacoustic musical creation of Edgar Nicouleau which can be broadcast on any medium or run live from the control surface and MaxMSP. This work is a study of the complexity of desire and man – woman relationships.

The dancer's body is inspired by the written musical piece played during the performance and enters into conversation with it by using of sensors. 

First presentation: 19th November 2016, Conservatoire Gabriel Fauré de GrandAngoulême.

Distance or proximity (2017)

"Distance or proximity" is a solo dance performance inspired by the text of Florence Toussan « A voice ».


In its strangeness, in its slowness, the body, underlined by the light, carried by the music, becomes abstraction, it offers itself to the images, the reminiscences and at the same time it is there, powerful, urgent, wrought until the release of a hand that suddenly becomes autonomous and alive under the impact of a directed and loving light. Moving, thought close to the skin, the light slips into the gesture, accompanies it. It directs the eye by causing changes of scale which are reinforced by the breaks and the variations of sound composition. 

Dance: Brigitta Horváth

Light: Kornél Szokács

Music: Pierre Martin

The original version was performed in the framework of the exhibition « Proximities – Distances » in Atelier IMIS in 2017.
