DRAGGED is a 5 hours performance combining movement and space. We wanted to approach the climate thematic of the Nuit blanche through the impact of human actions on the planet. The threats that weigh on the living are numerous. Man asserts his domination over nature and we chose to work on this destructive behavior.
It is an immersive sculpture inside which the public travels, crosses, wanders. A chrysalis-like installation, a woven canvas grafted into the urban landscape that welcomes it. The use of vegetable threads, emphasizes the visual effect and the graft brought to the city while minimizing the ecological impact of the structure.
Like a continuity of the body in space, the structure reacts thanks to a LED device hidden in the canvas. The light board changes throughout the performance using sensitive sensors that react to movement. It immerses the public at the heart of the performance.
