A hemeralopic show that contradicts, once and for all, our fear of the dark…and reconciles us with the obscurity that created us. When your shadow follows you relentlessly or seems to want to get ahead of you, when it no longer resembles you and seeks to surprise you on street corners, when it starts dancing instead of you… When all the shadows of the world merge together in order to form only one, so black and dense that we no longer see… Light!
The game is to deflect visual certainties and to call into question the materiality of the body in the face of light and shadows. It is similar to the way that our fantasies and our fears sometimes take on a greater sense of reality in our mind’s eyes than in life itself.
