“Autour du domaine”

An invitation to watch over the horizon, to cross the area and to search for the light.

Across the domain is a circus piece for tight wires about the feeling of balance and the writing of a poetic space. The show freely explores the poetry book Du domaine published in 1977 by the French poet Guillevic (Editions Gallimard).

The domain is the wire. Wire is the thinnest space, more direct than a stone’s throw, more elastic than a fragmented body. It has a fierce texture, it scalps the body and burns the skin. Wire does not belong to the past, nor the future, it is the very moment, the instant, and reveals any movement. On the wire, everything is searching for balance, and at the heart of this performance is the desire to share this movement which animates us, inseparable from the regard we have for people and things.

Across the domain is the great effort we make to reconnect physically to the world, even if it is fragile, and to be as close as possible to this fragility, to make our way through what is cracked, precarious and incomplete. It is also a quest, which goes on and on: the search for balance, which is not an ideal but a process.
