“Black and white produces forms more than it reproduces; it dramatizes and concentrates. It is also more conducive to revealing visual dynamics.”
HAPPY is a patchwork of situations in a scenography where black, grey and white dominate, so that HER and HIS dances are articulated in circuits, lines, circles, spirals, perspectives, borders, optical illusions and so on, in a kind of existential meandering.
Black and white reveal a turn of mind of abstract form when colour occurs as a reminder of the living in imaginary form.
By image and projection, the evidence is born from allegories, specified by the danced progress of these two individuals between animal, vegetable, mineral and human.
