Nicolas Courgeon & Kanako Saito
Nature and Me project by Jean-Luc Vilmouth
Echigo Tsumari triennale, Niigata, Japan
” The project with Kanako is the result of a natural process. We started, in Paris, to work on a shape of a cloud, like something standing between us.
I’m taller that Kanako and she is japanese, we share a lot of differences. But our intention was clear : scotch tape and punk style. We went on this idea, bigger and bigger until we loose control (that we never get anyway).
Playing everyday with smog machine, fan and tarp, help us to find our own langage to play the performance.
The cloud is the result of our exchanges ; everyday we extended and fixed the creature until it breaks limits of stage.
The Nature is the steam wich stay around a few seconds after the collapse. »
