PERFORMANCE

TRICODEX

 

Tricodex is a vegetable and mineral journey, where bodies are transformed into strange animals and imaginary plants. Microbes, insects spend vegetables... The dancers of the Opéra de Lyon undergo an incredible pallet of metamorphoses. In the beginning was darkness. Infinite smallness. Then movement... towards the cosmos... to the head-spinning movement of the planets. The costumes extend and continue the dancer's movements to invent new forms. Bodies multiplied and disjointed. A world which seems elsewhere, but which could, after all, be ours.
