c/o - noustube
« This work has been based on and inspired by water. Water lets me juggle with myself ; juggle with my body, weighting between not much and nothing, and somethimes even less than nothing. »
Soon as the subaquatic performance « c/o » was created in 2001, the will to invite artits to invest this « tube-space », to use this stage design as a aquatic theatre and to offer this space to other artists with other proposals, come to surface. In 2008, this project materealised and « noustube » was performed for the first time with 6 artists.
« noustube » gives every artist carte blanche to create a solo around and inside the cylinder. Only one contraint : « take the plunge » whenever the artist decides during the performance.
« noustube » is an invitation to immersion. It is about giving a place where freedom of expression is garanted. An exhibition space, where we totally lose control of our own image. A space where contraint is so important that the artist’s emotion emerges and is shared live with the audience. More than a show, a shared experience.
