TEF Vol.10 Performance [Recommendation Program]
|Date||2016.1.10(Sun) - 2016.1.11(Mon)
|Organize||Tokyo Metropolitan Foundation for History and Culture, Tokyo Wonder Site
"Doline" is a performance using the staging of sand on different states, movements, points of view and ways of listening. It's an extension from "Aral", played at TEF Vol.9. Every sound will be produced by capturing tiny noises made by frictions of sand against other materials including sand itself. Delphine has built dedicated object/ instrument/ stage which allow playing sound and images in real-time. 'Doline' means a hole in the ground caused by collapse of the surface layer. Sand is the result of billion years of erosion and is now a disappearing resource because of human's utilization. It's characterized by its ability to flow, constantly moving, both one and multiple, minuscule and gigantic.

Graduated from the Geneva University of Art and Design in 2008, visual artist, video director and performer, Delphine's research and experimentations are focused on exploring the question of theatricality in projected image. Using activated video devices, she tries to create a tension between different levels of "realtime" experiences. Movement as well as emptiness and light around shapes visible in actual space as well as in the form of images define the foci of this tension. She manipulates "poor" and "insignificant" materials from the everyday. Most of her work is conceived in close relation with sound artists and sound issues.
'Low-tech' materials play an important role in my work. It was interesting for me to use it in Japan because even if 'high-tech' is everywhere in this country, people seem interested by a performance that puts human back to the center. That's what I'm trying to do by manipulating 'poor' material from the everyday and by playing with scale. It lets appear human point of view, mistakes, things that we can't see as humans, and everything that makes us feel small. Some people told me that they were especially touched by that point last year. By dramatizing the tiny, the insignificant, the 'nothing', I try to create a tension between those two dimensions: spectacular and non-spectacular. That non-spectacular dimension is a kind of manifesto for me.
― What will your new performance, "Doline" be like?
― How do you compose your performance? Also, what is "real-time," in your performance?
I would say that it's all about deconstruction of the "spectacular". I hope that people who will come to the performance will have more questions and pleasure with my work. I also hope that they will come at the end for discussions. That's what I try to do with performances, to create exchanges spaces.
