On the occasion of the DADA Centenary in 2016, Fluxum Foundation and Flux Laboratory invite the visual artist Denis Savary, who collaborates on this occasion with choreographer Jeremy Tran, for the creation Lagune.
The performance revolves around one of Sophie Taeuber Arp's puppet, The rebuilt for the occasion and manipulated by the puppeteer Evelyne Villaime.
Lagune reconstructs, on stage or in an open space, an over-the-water city, Robot King's imaginary kingdom. The different facades and walls of the city are mobile and continually moved by six dancers, which confers a illusion of the town being battered by the sea, moving along an imaginary wave built from the dancers' movements.
Wishing this creation as modular and scalable as possible, Lagune will be played in various unexpected places and conditions. Premiered in Zurich, birthplace of Dadaism, the creation will tour around Switzerland before returning to Geneva.
