Digital performance from Valérie Cordy

The Asteroid

Valérie Cordy uses the metaphor of the asteroid for her digital happenings, considering its fundamental characteristic of being, above all, an independent being, responding to the laws of mechanics, but not to those of orbital habits that the ether makes us think as immanent.

On stage, Valérie Cordy, through her asteroids, captures the flow of data in relation to the contexts and specific paths: disaster in Haiti, financial crisis, etc. Her asteroid integrates that flow to return it in a powerful live moment, thanks to digital technologies that enable to deconstruct this data and turn it into strong and meaningful messages, giving to decrypt the world differently

 

Valérie Cordy is the director of the Fabrique de Théâtre, as well as a theater director and digital artist.
