Rien que pour vos yeux

Rien que pour vos yeux is steeped in cinema references. With a nod to the twelfth James Bond film, For Your Eyes Only  (1981), Elsa Michaud and Gabriel Gauthier imagine a “piece for a film  heroine” in which they appropriate the codes of the big screen. The two  artists reproduce, stripped of all context, the physical postures and  attitudes that actresses adopt to arouse emotion. In the role of the  heroine, with Thomas Laigle’s lighting design serving as her only  close-up, Elsa Michaud per-forms a choreography punctuated by a series  of micro-events but without any spectacular action, on a stage without  scenery. To a sound-track composed by Pierre Aviat and David Leroy, her  character passes through states forged by classic cinema scenes.  Inspired by their experiences as spectators, Elsa Michaud and Gabriel  Gauthier do away with dramatic flourishes in Rien que pour vos yeux to  seek a form halfway between dance and visual arts.

Gauthier, Gabriel

Elsa Michaud and Gabriel Gauthier met at the Beaux-Arts in Paris, from  which they are both gradautes. The interdisciplinary performances they  create, straddling dance, music and performance, closely resemble  spatial installations, and have been presented at the Ménagerie de  Verre, the CN D, Actoral and the Entre Cour et Jardin festival and  Plastique Danse Flore. They are currently in residence at the  Laboratoires d’Aubervilliers
