‘Arc’ – Julien Desprez

BIO

Solo for electrical arc, electronics, with dismembered guitar and tap dance.

With ‘ARC’, Julien Desprez creates a dramaturgy, a sound and choreographic performance in which the various mediums of expression succeed one another to tell and reveal the relationship between human emotions, love and electrical intensity.

At center stage, a carpet created by performer and choreographer Ana Rita Teodoro serves as the starting point for a complex network of electric arcs designed in collaboration with artist and sound technician Nicolas Canot. This high-voltage orchestra is amplified by electro-magnetic processes inspired by electric guitar amplification techniques.

ARC’ explores the link between human emotions and electrical intensity. Neuroscience tells us that electricity drives our emotional functioning: neurons discharge small amounts of electricity in the brain when we feel emotions.

In the midst of a starry network of electric arcs on the floor, Julien Desprez allows himself to be traversed by multiple degrees of intensity that will generate emotional states and their forms of expression: a love song, a hypnotic rhythmic trance, a game of moving electric arcs, guitar playing and its sonic eruptions. He dances, plays, sings, in a frantic rhythm or in suspended time that exposes him and reveals the fragility of the human psyche
