Cartographie des territoires affectifs
The short-film is the result of the transdisciplinary artistic residence at Cine Luso Espírito Mundo, 2018, Brussels, Belgium.

The experimental film is based on a set of testimonies of migrants from various origins and statutes, suported by visual arts to recreate a trip to an imaginary space where it addresses the condition of foreigner, territory and its memory.

With a documentary approach, the narrative departs from an artistic plan in a game where the cartographic maps are redesigned assuming an emotional and affective state that questions the body-man as the last frontier in relation with the other and with the own spacial displacement.

An Be Taa Mi | Où Allons-Nous
“La morale agonise. Les apparences masquent la véritable nature d'un monde de jeux de pouvoirs, d'exploitation, de manipulation et d'aliénation de l'homme par l'homme Chacun cherche à donner un sens à sa vie, veut se sentir utile et être reconnu de ses semblables. Nous voulons nous préparer et réfléchir à la création d'un meilleur avenir. Nous sommes convaincus que c'est à force de conviction et de persévérance que les bonnes idées passent. Nous nous questionnons : OÙ ALLONS-NOUS?Après plusieurs résidences à Globe Aroma, au Theatre Marni et au Kaaitheater, une troisième session de travail accueillie dans le studio 2 Ultima Vez a été l’occasion de préciser les axes de recherche autour du spectacle et de les transmettre aux danseurs.”
