Tarentella is a specular presence/ a behavioral and interactive dress created by Maflohé Passedouet with Nathalie Guichon's artistic collaboration, Martin Hermant &
Aurélien Conil engineers in electronics and computing, Sébastien Eglème author composer, mixmedia designer.
Tarentella reveals the desire to find the taste of the magic, the exuberance, the trance and the communicating shudder, to find pleasure to vibrate in connection with others, to ritualize a moment of life and exchanged energy. Of the slowness of an object, make the movement appear... Assist at a metamorphosis, restore life in a dress made and populated with materials which metamorphose when we approach it.
On a time of rv and with the presence of the creators, the audience is invited to discover the dress in the darkness and to interact with this one.The public is invited to live and to make live a mesmerizing artistic experience: in a black room and in a particular sound atmosphere, Tarentella welcomes the public, immersing him in another dimension. Provided with flashlights, this one is invited to approach, to explore this presence which begins to react to the light, to the touch, to the approach by shivering, by emitting sounds, light... Little by little, in reaction to the behavior of the public any goshawk, this one livens up, gets clearer, expresses herself to take him in a dramatic art until a sound, visual, sensory highest full stop and eventually invade all the space.
The darkness falls again only rest the motionless dress …
