Security Piece

Performance at Managerre de Verre and Palais de Tokyo, Paris, FR, 2012
Duration 8’00”, Together with Le Pavillion residency.
Performers: Alice Martins, Benjamin Bertrand
Voice by Helene Meisel

Two performers, accompanied by a friendly voice-over, enact a choreography loosely derived from airplane instructions. The performers keep shifting their roles between dancers and security guards: they separate men and women in different sides of the room, for instance, as they continue performing. Gradually the instructions grow more paranoid and slip into a hypno-erotic fantasy.
