Facing the sea

VR Film by Julie Charrier and Laurent Vautrin

“THERE IS NO ART WHICH MUST, MORE THAN THE THEATRE, BRING TOGETHER ILLUSION AND REALITY”  JEAN VILAR

 

Bringing together illusion and reality. That is what is on offer with virtual reality whose specificities, from both a technical and narrative standpoint, raise many questions and create new challenges.

Histoires d’espaces, season 2, offers 4 shorts in stereoscopic VR produced with shows in mind that were presented at the Avignon and Aix en Provence Festivals in 2017.  These four works offer the opportunity of bringing together directors, playwrights, choreographs, musicians or visual artists to question and explore virtual reality in comparison to live productions.

Face à la mer brings together 9 Tunisian dancers, actors, circus acrobats, singers and musicians, in a tribute to those who took part in the Jasmine revolution.

During the performance of his production at the Festival D’Avignon, Radhouane El Medded, with Julie Charrier and Laurent Vautrin, imagines in a 10-minute long VR film, a streamlined mise en scene, symbolic gestures, expressions that construct and deconstruct the inexorable opposition between two worlds, two shores, two universes.
