With My body of coming forth by day Olivier Dubois presents an intimate solo exploring the hidden corners of the body’s memory and its ability to tell us a story of art. The body as a souvenir.
My body as a long memory and a long sorrow of art. I hold inside of me thousands of movements, gestures, positions, intentions, feelings … liters of sweat, of bleeding, hundreds of wounds, scars, a pack of joy, and pain. But what is left of all of that? What do I remember? Where the memory of my body can lead me? Which part of my story as a performer can tell about history of art?! Yes, the history of Performing Art is composed by millions of bodies stories! Should I consider myself as an art piece and even more as a monstrous master piece? And if so, how much would you value this?
