Is you me is the result of several meetings. The meeting between Benoît and Louise of course being one of them, but also the story that I wove between images and dance, a story in which I crossed paths with Benoît numerous times.
This time around, Benoît offered me to continue an experience that I had started with Mathilde Monnier: to create the space of the theatre, be that the stage, the lights and the set, with a sole projector.
The experience with Mathilde Monnier had taught me that this would mean working with the idea of a co-creation from the start and Benoît understood this immediately.
It would not be possible to conceive the dance separately from the drawn space, like the projections could not be conceived as a mere frame, neutral and welcoming.
Benoît and Louise gradually became like kinds of drawings, but animated cartoon drawings: they started playing with their third dimension, amusing themselves with getting rid of it or finding it back: to go from a state of volume to that of surface or line and vice versa.
