For this residency the team is gathered for a stage of sound research and musical creation around plants.
État végétal is a hybrid choreographic solo at the crossroads of choreography, bio-art and experimental music. Through the interconnection between the sound of plants and the dancing human body, it aims to reveal the process of symbiosis between living beings, human and non-human.
Resonating with the ecological and societal issues of tomorrow's world, this show aims to build a universe that explodes the old paradigms of apathetic plant life and confronts us with the overflowing force of this living world. État Végétal is an invitation to dream of a new world, one in which living beings are freed from their overweening anthropocentrism, and in which each species, in its singularity, can live in symbiosis; a world in which the fundamental impulse of life is respected and shared.

Maxime Mantovani (1984) is a composer and improviser. The development of his musical writing methods is inspired by technology. He is interested in electroacoustic lutherie, and designs instruments that give him precise control over the generation of sound matter. Also an improviser, his interfaces become an instrument for sound encounters between musicians, dancers and visual artists. In May 2022, he will complete an IRCAM art-research residency focusing on real-time control of Artificial Intelligence models.
