DECOUR
Description: 
Choreography shared by dancers (Alicia Malialin, Sofi Suma, Bernard Hermelle) and performers (Caroline Bouissou, David Carmine, Robin De Courcy). 8 x 20 minutes. Coming together, coming apart and exchanging partners. A relation was created with the works exhibited in Désappartement (Unnapartment).

The visitors walked in small groups into the empty apartment, where the visual artists had been invited to question the space. Members of the audience unwittingly became dancers in the performance since there were no limits to the suggested choreography.
Pierre-Laurent Cassière chose the sound program on the spot and Karim Zennit and Florian Pugnaire filmed it all.
