sur les traces du wombat



This 'site' of the d a n s e  project was commissioned by the Parc Départemental de Chamarande for their annual summer festival in July 2005, the Parcours de danse.

My project was to expose  d a n s e  to the natural environment of the park at Chamarande, allowing the elements of both to mutually effect each other. My interest lay in using the materials of  d a n s e  to make a response to the found environment and to explore the effects of one on the other, without succumbing to the seduction of the park and the production of beautiful images, but rather, to stay close to the work whilst allowing it to be impregnated by the park.
