Flora Détraz Échelle Humaine - Gesächt


The solo Gesächt explores the idea that the body is made up of many other bodies: we are all the bodies we have copied, imitated, admired, loved, hated.

In a game between recognizable and unrecognizable, the body becomes a landscape where "figures" appear and disappear. Flora Détraz has chosen to take up the figure of the opera singer because he is the being in representation par excellence. She thus studied the postures and mimics of the baritone Dietrich Fisher Diskau. In this performance, she sees the body as the only vibrant terrain, with light as its only accompaniment and costume as its only appearance.
