Dijon - Paris / Created in 2022

With a video and musical installation and the help of a suspensive artist which exposes the audience to a physical sensation of time, ANIMA tells of the invisible metamorphoses of the landscapes and places with which we coexist.

ANIMA is the meeting of plastic artist Noémie Goudal and director Maëlle Poésy around an immersive object, with the aim to touch the audience as deeply as possible. Inspired by research in paleoclimatology and studies about our perceptions in closed environments, the two artists question our sensations and our need for spatial and temporal markers. What’s the nature of the dizziness we feel if the horizon, or even the asperity of the ground, is taken away? How unsettled do we become when we can no longer tell day from night? Accompanied by Chloé Thévenin’s musical creation, the video installation in which we are immerged speaks to us of our landscapes and of the invisible metamorphoses of our habitats. Within this suspended installation, performing artist Chloé Moglia moves through the geography of ANIMA, so that we can experience the physical and plastic sensation of time. “What is the present if not an acute moment of feeling? It’s important to us to talk about the convergence of time, with a past that feeds the present which itself is part of the future.

Chloé Moglia
Performer and Rhizome artistic director Chloé Moglia explores through her solo and collective creations a unique suspended world. Her shows and performances play with bodies, slowness, the laws of physics, and vertigo. A defender of embodied thought and of a sensitive representation of physicality, she combines attention and acuity by weaving together physical practice, reflection, and sensitivity.

Chloé Thévenin
A DJ who performs in clubs and festivals, Chloé Thévenin also works in the studio to create worlds and climates and build bridges with other cultures. The albums she produces are like so many electronic self-portraits. She has composed film soundtracks as well as the music to several dance shows. In 2021, she was tasked with creating the new sound design for France Culture.
