Director and videographer, Véronique Caye develops a work of scenic exploration of contemporary writing through visual and sound research which, far from illustrating the text, becomes a plastic extension of it. Her approach to directing does not consist in “interpreting” a text or transposing it to the stage, but in articulating the different components of text representation, body (dancers and actors), video, scenography, sound and light into a network of forces and resistance. In her performances, Véronique Caye questions the tensions between video and stage presence. This assembly work thus offers multiple perspectives that underline an understanding of the world to come, through the media, neurosis, the notion of rupture and the future of all forms of social organization.
