"Collision" is an installative, performative and musical research-creation that made its way throughout the summer of 2018. It quickly became, through meetings, chance and spontaneity, the pooling of a small group of artists and organizations.
In the spirit of an exquisite spatial corpse, the work residence is approached as a research platform favoring the collision of asserted aesthetic identities and the emergence of a work-event combining mobile architectural layout and performative work .
The title of the project "Collision" evokes the opera written by Kurt Schwitters in 1927 - a Dadaist diversion from the operative format which evokes the arrival of a comet and the inevitable end of the world. Our collision is an opera designed for the semi-basement that characterizes the artist centre Le LOBE - a Space Opera for a performer and a musician.
