An unclassifiable object, presented in a large anatomical Panopticum, “Anatomy of Desire” invites us to capture the invisible forces that drive our desire, through a sensory journey that begins with a culinary experience in total darkness. Through “Being” beyond genres, in a body without inside or outside, a limitless cosmic body, this subversive performance concocted by Boris Gibé, dissects the layers of our unconscious from the microcosm to the macrocosm.
The show will start with a culinary experiment. If you are allergic to any fruits or nuts, please inform us by e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org, indicating which day of the show you will attend.
Since Boris Gibé created Les Choses de Rien in 2004, the company has developed a unique choreographic and artistic style applied to contemporary circus. The company’s previous creations include: “Installation Tripode” (2005); “Le Phare” (2006); “Bull” (2008); “Les Fuyantes” (2011) and others. The choreographic language of the company pushes the body to its breaking point, resulting in raw poetry in motion. B. Gibé’s research focuses on a meta perception of the world contained in closed spaces and existentialist cinematographic universes that raise questions about humanity. His works play with the audience’s visual, sensory, and emotional perceptions and offer a fresh perspective on the breakdown of points of reference.
