Chef de corps is inspired by the idea of panoptic architecture as set design, with a central axis able to observe and monitor groups of individuals. Far from being the simple illustration of Bentham’s 18th century prison structure and other ways of monitoring the activities of certain people, it intends to be a way to question our society, its forms of surveillance as well as its tools for manipulation.
Chef de corps is part of the project we call CORPS DISCIPLINAIRES, a project which explores on several levels the influence of the authorities on our perceptions and movements. It will be developed with 4 principal axes:
►RESEARCH Corps réfléchis : Reflected bodies: a section for theoretical reflection and spaces for practice.
►TRANSMISSION: a series of workshops targeting specific audiences.
Série d’ateliers adressée à des publics spécifiques.
► PERFORMANCE : Chef de corps (world premiere March 14 & 15, 2017 at the Scène Nationale 61)
► PUBLICATION: in collaboration with the graphic workshop chevalvert.
