Event Description


Choreography and interpretation: Sarah Bronsard

Audio art and robotics: Patrick Saint-Denis

Performer and co-creator: Olivier Arseneault

Created in 2018, Èbe is the result of a collaboration between Sarah Bronsard and Patrick Saint-Denis (audio and robotics art). An extended version is created in 2021, enriched by a new team of collaborators.

The piece revolves around a choir of five accordion-robots and a choreography rooted in flamenco to explore the communicative dimension of breath. The unconscious adjustment of the breathing to that of the accordions, like the hypnotizing effect of the sea, reveals the power of what influences us beyond our individual questionings. It is therefore around the cyclical and vital phenomenon of the tides that Èbe was created. The poetic anchor points that nourished the work are the cyclical movement of the waves, like breathing, and what is revealed on the beach when the waters recede (the word 'èbe' means 'ebbing tide'). Following the metaphor of what is revealed when the water recedes, we explore what lies beneath the surface of what is usually audible in accordion and flamenco playing, as well as what connects us in the space across distance. Èbe offers a contemplative and sensory experience shared through the different rhythms that inhabit and surround us.
