Project Phantom

Etienne Saglio

From 25 jul to 27 jul at 10pm - Parc Georges Brassens

Étienne Saglio confronts the reality of public space to create a moment of dreamlike fiction and poetic reverie. His flying creature, an evanescent volume in the shape of an otherworldly wandering soul, performs an aerial ballet. Alternately swift and wavy, soft and electric, diaphanous and translucent, a few spins turn it into an abyssal underwater creature. Then it suddenly gets back to the light and airy motion of the traditional Romantic phantom, enshrouded in silk fabric. Organic and animate, as minimalistic as it is spectacular, this phantom has a life of its own and takes us on an incredible weightless choreographic adventure
