FAVNE


2021

At once process-piece, performance and living exhibition, FAVNE is a quest: has the earth that buried Mallarmé’s, Debussy’s and Nijinsky’s Faune been contaminated? A choreographic extraction with a feminist, ecologist and postmodernist probe seems to be necessary.
FAVNE is a movement. In search of our ‘humanimality’. Searching for the physical link between onanism and onirism. Inspiring again creativity to embody the vital force. Liberating the desire to express it fully. Seeking the origin to find the original.
FAVNE is a declaration of love. Let our fetishes become joyful games! Let’s go through flesh to enjoy the world!
FAVNE is a manifesto. Democratize the roles! Let everyone imagine themselves as a faun! Let everyone become a nymph! Let everyone become a musical and dancing reed!
