This short film is an adaption of the performance Animale (choreography by Lisie Philip, music by Laurent Tamagno). It was produced for an event in the MAMAC (the Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art of Nice) called “la Nuit des Musées” in 2017. I perceived the show as a celebration of the vitality of the body which is hunted and cornered but also resistant and pugnacious. The ardour and youthness of the tense muscles reminded me of creepers around a tree. I admired the transcendental beauty of the protean animality, oscillating between a quadruped, a reptile and a bird. I wanted to confront, as a last hunt, this body to young to die to the cold beauty of the cutting room of the old slaughterhouse of Nice.
Redemption is my third and final non-narrative experimental film that deals with the death and resurrection of the human essence. This is not about a physical death but a spiritual one. The themes are my abstract interpretations of actual events that I have experienced. Those experiences dealt with the death of hope and spirit and their restorations.
The House of the Rising Sun is a place of transition in music and folklore. It’s a purgatory where travelers, vagabonds, and lost souls cross paths before continuing toward their life after. Absolution is a snapshot of that purgatory, that waiting room, where souls must accept the regrets and disappointments in their lives before they can cross over. Personal struggles are highlighted in duets and solos throughout the piece. Some remorse is too difficult to let go, though, and while many find reprieve from their sins and escape the cycle of self-recrimination, others are doomed to stay and repeat it.
