How can we rethink the living arts through the living? More generally, how can we rethink and rearrange our links between living beings (humans, fungi, plants, etc.)? Is every encounter a form of contamination? These are the questions that are constantly occupying artist Sara Manente, who is currently focusing her creative process on the mycelium. This subterranean network essential to the forest (from which mushrooms grow) serves as an object of study, a construction material and a metaphor. Like the mycelium, she is multiplying collaborations in order to reach new grounds and invent collective practices, to which she invites specialists from French-speaking Switzerland as well as the audience at far°.
The result of a glossy publication, the ROT GARDEN is a multidisciplinary and polymorphous space. It's an installation to visit, a queer performance and a series of convivial, colourful events.
Pour en finir finalement avec moi-même (work in progress) oscillates between dance, visual arts and performance. In this solo with objects, Santiago Ribelles Zorita questions the notion of identity by putting his 'self' in motion. Literally exposing himself, he plays with the imaginary of the porn to explore the extension of pleasure, the limits of physicality and the plasticity of a pleasure that is no longer just self-centred, but also decentred.
