See that my grave is kept clean
A print by Albrecht Dürer dating back to the Renaissance depicts a strange scene: a naked woman is lying on a table behind a grid; facing her on the other side, a man tries to reproduce what he sees, using the grid as a reference system to measure, to pinpoint, to see. Even if the woman’s figure is captured by this device, called a perspective machine, she will never be entirely contained. Invited on stage, the abstract and geometrical perspective system is materialised. Here geometry is contingent on matter, gaze is embodied, and bodies are prone to sensations, rhythms and time. Friction appears. Figures touch and affect each other. Perspectives shift.

In 2015, she completed her Master in Choreography at ex.e.r.ce in the Choreographic Center in Montpellier (FR).
