Descritif du spectacle

A performance combining contemporary dance and interactive digital media  based on a contemporary rewriting of The House of Asterion by Jorge  Luis Borges (inspired by the myth of the Minotaur).

The performance can be seen from inside or outside.

Matos, Jean-Marc

Dancer, choreographer and artistic director. Trained at the Cunningham Studio in New-York, he has performed with David Gordon (Judson Church). He is interested in the impact of digital technology on society, in order to develop a meaningful relationship between dance and new media. He has choreographed more than 45 pieces which have been presented extensively in France (Avignon Festival, the Pompidou Center, etc.) and in many countries (Europe, Central and South America, USA, Canada, North Africa, India, Pakistan). He is involved in  several cross-cultural and multidisciplinary projects, including  the EU supported projects Metabody and Wholodance, for which he is one of the co-organizing partners.
