Benoît Lachambre/Par B.L.eux [CA]

Snakeskins

09.05 – 13.05.2012

The charismatic performer Benoît Lachambre transforms on stage like a moulting animal. But is he in a mode of regression or one of advanced evolution? Or do these terms relate more to a society that has lost any sense of the future? A multimedia, multi-sensory stage object, Snakeskins explores the skin as the surface of resistance with the rigidity of constructed definitions. A visceral and vital manifesto about the multiplicity of the being. With live music by Hahn Rowe. In the past, Lachambre and Rowe have regularly collaborated with Meg Stuart.
