Baisers et coquillages
8 dancers, sea shells, sound music 42'14, 2011
Art Contemporary County Museum, Sérignan, France [June 25, 2011]

Much like Gene Kelly’s movies, the «Baisers et coquillages» performance benefits from the context of the exhibition’s opening buffet, form the architecture of the regional museum of contemporary art and from the people invited.
From the lightness of a summer romance to the dramatics of a shaken desire, it progressively oscillates from a real situation – an exhibition opening – to a dancing ready made evoking musicals, this performance questions the game of seduction.
Little by little, performers lust after the audience before this volatile charm turns into an odd dancing short scene.
