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").

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.
