On Saturday 28 October at 2pm, the artist Myriam Lefkowitz will present How can one know in such darkness? with her collaborators Jean Philippe Derail, Ghyslaine Gau, Thierry Grapotte, Catalina Insignares, Julie Laporte, Florian Richaud and Yasmine Youcef.
The presentation extends Lefkowitz’s research on issues of attention, sensation and perception through which she is developing various immersive devices that provoke encounters between choreographic artists and spectators. Through these, Lefkowitz creates the conditions for an increased perceptual experience through the use of gaze, touch, walking and liminal states between sleep and waking.
This performance is one of a series of public meetings, which put into practice the research that Myriam Lefkowitz has been conducting during her three-month residency at La Ferme du Buisson extending across the period 18 September – 30 December 2017, and which will be further developed within her commission for If I Can’t Dance’s VII (2017–2018), Social Movement.
The presentation and residency at La Ferme du Buisson is presented with the support of Drac Île-de-France - Ministère de la Culture, Conseil régional d'Île-de-France and Corpus, network for performance practice. Corpus is Bulegoa z/b (Bilbao), CAC (Vilnius), KW (Berlin), If I Can’t Dance (Amsterdam), Playground (STUK & M, Leuven), and Tate Modern (London). Corpus is co-funded by the Creative Europe Programme of the European Union.
