Ya Rayah

Discreetly wacky, Ya Rayah proceeds with the motley collection of objects and images. In the course of this enumeration we find fuming shoes, a strolling typography, X-rays of feet… The assembly of these materials depicts a playful journey, revealing the movement of a writing in the process of writing. Where we rediscover the poetic gesture dear to the imagination of ALIS, whose work is inspired by Oulipo poets’s methods.

The approach of ALIS, a group founded by Dominique Soria and Pierre Fourny, does not conform to standards. It focuses on the search for a new expression by using a variety of artistic disciplines. Normally, their compositions are performed on stage or deployed in art galleries. Following La Complainte du progrès, this film once again opens up, to a music by Dahmane el Harrachi, a rich field of investigation for their cheerful and skilfully organised comments.

Alis

Founded in 1982 by Pierre Fourny and based in the Aisne department in Fère-en-Tardenois since 1990, ALIS develops an artistic practice that escapes conventionally recognised disciplines and that the vocabulary of the theatre of objects and the visual theatre is trying to adopt.


In its multi-layered artistic activities (stage performances, stage sets, design of objects, videos, books, etc.), ALIS strives to handle and reroute universally recognisable signs (advertising images, everyday objects, symbols, etc.) to give them other meanings. It is in this same “do-it-yourself and poaching” frame of mind that ALIS has appropriated image technologies, first slides and then digital images. 

From the year 2000 onwards, ALIS has focused on the proliferation of “Poésie à 2 mi-mots” (a technique imagined by Pierre Fourny that could be translated in English as 2 half-words poetry) with a particular interest in the handling and rerouting of the letters in our alphabet, in words, writing and reading in a media-crazed contemporary context that tends to revolutionalise their use.


The company has symbolically made Fère-en-Tardenois the capital of this poetic experience and its challenges, a point of anchorage from which it continually seeks to reach out widely and share its experiences.

One dance, one song

Based on a simple principle, in the continuity of the collection Une Danse, le temps d'une chanson, Patrice Nezan proposes a series of seven short films, each bringing together a choreographer and a director. In these “choreogra-films”, music imprints its duration and atmosphere on each of the choreographic universes. Journeys to ephemeral worlds, the strangeness of which is due as much to the quality of the images as to the situations imagined.

Collaboration between a choreographer and a writer can lead to the emergence of a large number of combinations. If sometimes the choreographer creates his dance around the work of an author, the writer can also choose dance as the subject of his text.
