La Mélodie d'ici et là
Illusion theater for choreographed objects and videos
Creation November 2019
"La Mélodie d'ici et là" is a choreographic dream. Thanks to digital arts, it plunges us into a new poetic reality.
In a game of visual metamorphosis, reality is diverted to bring out a universe of fantasy, of absurdity, of joyful and colorful vertigo.
"La Mélodie d'ici et là" is a playground that challenges and multiplies the limits of our daily life, our perception and our relationship to others.
An enchanting spectacle that evokes the power of the imagination!

The show " La Mélodie d'ici et là " is at the heart of the research of the Cie Sens Dessus Dessous. By introducing a digital scenography (video mapping), the art of choreographic manipulation of the object, developed for more than 10 years by the company, here becomes a theater of illusion for choreographed object and video.
The theme of the duo will be approached around otherness in all its dynamics. Thus, the play deals with the meeting, the attraction between two people, through several fantastic situations. The birth of a relationship between two people is thus revealed, the outlines of links to be created.
We sow confusion as to the border between the real object and the object image, between the flesh body and the projected body.
We are developing a lexicon based on both poetry and digital techniques, through the play of metamorphoses, between reality and virtuality.
