A car leaves the road and dives into a strange and wild dimension, buried as if out of time. Little bylittle, the topography of the place, where real and unreal seem to merge, is revealed.
Drawing both from the world of the English writer J.G. Ballard (author of Crash and Concrete Island in particular) and from the personal experience of a road accident, Flesh explores theexact moment that follows the shock, the short instant where time seems to stop or expand. The moment where the mind detaches itself from the body, to reveal a panoramic view of a surrealistscene. Vehicle carcasses take the form of moving objects, motorway viaducts become gigantic Golems, car engines appear to levitate over a sea of ice.
And on this flow of images and sensations,the spectator experiences what a driver experiences as he crosses an unknown dimension.. a trulyhallucinogenic journey.
Between electronic opera and an audiovisual experience, Flesh is a musical and visual art form aswell as a dance/movement performance, a moving painting whose meaning is revealed in theexperience and the emotion it creates.
Following Vigroux’s previuos works Aucun Lieu and Ruines, Flesh is an extension of a musical exploration in between arts, concert and drama. Bodies flows, light sculptures, machinery, video and music are an attempt of «Gesamtkunstwerk», a genuine immersive act leading the audience through a hallucinatory universe, across fantastic landscapes in which inhuman corpses, wild animals and human faces meet. Reality and the unreal merge.
Franck Vigroux is both a musician and a director. As a composer-performer he has the rare capacity to produce a very wide range of sounds from electroacoustic to industrial noise, modern composition and experimental electronic music. He has performed and recorded with internationally renowned musicians such as such as Mika Vainio (Pan Sonic), Reinhold Friedl, Elliott Sharp, Joey Baron, Zeena Parkins, Ars Nova Ensemble Instrumental.
