Solar system is a glance at a synchronic session of cosmogonic reenactment. The intimate atmosphere portrays impromptu interpretations of moving bodies of the participants to a sensorial session by French collective Somme Sensible. The choreographies evoke moments of unity and separation, before and after a Big Bang, whose driving force is a singing voice, freely interpreting its role of magnet, slowly attracting the roamers until the original nested equilibrium is restored. The author uses the pretext of a game to emancipate bodies from their social frames. The playful interpretation triggers a collective metamorphosis, happening in a collaborative yet fully instinctual way. The unexpected in this case is a lymph of regenerated compositions, the rising voices are agents that eventually put everything back together.
Chloé Sassi is a French based artist whose artistic practice combines performance and image. Having as her leitmotif immersivity, her works trigger sensuality in the ritualistic, fostering hyper-presence and a reversal of roles between us and ourselves, us and others, us and the world. Graduated under the guidance of contemporary philosoper Emanuele Coccia, in 2021 she founded Somme Sensible, a space designed for alternative sociabilities, a laboratory of contacts, encouraging the development of a total and collaborative art through multisensorial workshops.
