Vox dives into the meanderings of the vocal. Vox imitates music and the instruments that
Vox erases the body so as to find other ones.
Vox disguises, distorts and never drains.
Vox shouts, utters, moans, stumbles and above all jubilates.
Vox tells without saying.
While focusing on the musical evennoisist aspect of her voice, Aline Landreau intensifies one of the major element of her choreographic work, namely the deeply physical, immediate and therefore spatial dimension of sound. In that new collaboration with the musician Antoine Monzonis-Calvet, an aim is to reach the limits as well as the unexplored potentials of her vocal cords. An invisible beginning point, vibrant and wavering, for a performance based on hollowness in which the body on stage topples its own presence into an instrument dedicated to an edgeless and bottomless interiority.
