This project is a creation written by the french choreographer and director Jean-Camille Goimard from the contemporary dance company “Au Delà Du Bleu”. It’s a conceptual ballet mixing dance, video mapping, argentic photography projections, music and soundesign. A poetic and textural work about the air element, based on the wingsuit and base jump world.
For this creation, Jean-Camille Goimard built a team with the dancers Pierre Théoleyre and Denis Terrasse, the photographer Guillaume Ducreux, Loris Gemignani on mapping, Tristan Bres on composition and sound design and Thibault Garnier who was in charge to build the 6 meters high cylinder structure, where the dancers are evolving surrounded by images and visual textures.
The photographs and videos used for these projections were captured by following professionals’ base jumpers during their expeditions, and reworked to create a breathtaking 3D playground for the dancers. Pierre and Denis are moving with no limitation from the ground to the air, driven by a cinematic and hypnotic soundtrack mixing acoustic piano, modular synthesizers and an immersive sound design.
After 3 years of work, this creation is now touring in Europe in 2022 and 2023. Howie B, known for his collaborations with Björk, U2, Massive Attack, and Tricky, was seduced by this soundtrack and decided to release it on his brand new label “Dog Tooth”.
Tristan Bres will play this soundtrack live in December 2022 during the Wonderfruit Festival in Thailand. Out on Howie B’s Dog Tooth Records, you can stream ‘Levitation here’ https://bit.ly/3eona3e
