The young French performer Anne Lise Le Gac has a background in visual art and dance, but today mainly creates performative work. She takes great liberties in developing her idiom, which results in surprising but accessible hybrids such as a barbecue-lecture or a banquet based on Saudades recipes. In DUCTUS MIDI she reintroduces the medieval principle of ductus, working together with artist Arthur Chambry. Instead of following a previously laid-out plan (leading from A to B), this free way of thinking, reading and moving arises from the development and experience of the trajectory itself. This nomadic principle is explored by four travelers. They meet on stage and weave genres and practices into enchanting hybrids such as acoustic images or dancing instruments. As a whole, DUCTUS MIDI is greater than the sum of its parts and a true discovery.
