Hydrocarbure from the Théâtre du Centaure

Performance for a centaur - Odessa (film, 06mins00)- Extracts from Flux – Created in 2009

This performance is based on the extended staging of the film, Odessa. The body of the centaur, standing in a pool of petrol spreading out like a mirror on the ground, rears high, only a few centimetres from the audience. - a strange and wild image of a dismantled centaur. The audience and the centaur can look each other in the eye, feel and touch one another. The intimacy of this relationship reveals the fragility of life. Translation by Caroline Newman
