This project is produced in India and in France.
It develops cultural exchanges with Indian partners – artists, performers, technicians, galleries, art centres and dance companies – and shares technological know-how.
Gestures and body movements, music, text and calligraphy are linked together in interactive writing that highlights each of these elements.
Following the principle of a graphic novel, text and images fuse together in a hybrid form in a narrative process and generate imaginary/conceptual body movements.
A series of 12 fictions plays on these notions and becomes the basis of the choreographic motif.
In its artistic process, this work incorporates the development of technological tools and resources specific to digital tablets.
Bangalore fictions will be presented as an installation as part of the Bonjour India Festival in New Delhi and Bangalore in March 2013, and it will be created on the international level by means of an application for iPad in April 2013.
