January 17th-19th
Pacifique, CDCN at Grenoble 

Zones de contact is an invitation to explore, to feel, to think about the place of the encounter, the threshold, the space between the things and between the bodies. How does the body connect to its natural, plant, animal environment, to the visible and invisible, human and non-human, living and non-living materials? How to explore this zone of “lisièrement” where the beings and the things interlace, hold on each other and care about each other? A space of metamorphosis, as opposed to the situations that set the contact zones in impervious and strict boundaries.
From her topics of research, Vania Vaneau invites collaborators from various fields to an immersive sharing with the public.

And who knows in such a darkness?
Workshop with Myriam Lefkowitz
Myriam Lefkowitz invites about 20 people to a sensory experience in the darkness. Materials and objects of various shapes will be in contact, sound or tactile, with the lying bodies, without being able to clearly know who touches, what is touching, how long does it touch, when does the touch start, when does it end… What moves here are the apparently inanimate elements that compose the surrounding in which the people laying down are plunged into.
A vagueness occurs then between what you feel, what you imagine, what you remind of, what you think about… Between sleep and wakefulness, another kind of images appears..
