From L’Espace:

“Beyond Absence” is the cream of the exhibition “Gestures of Memories” by artist Florian Nguyen which will be presented at L’Espace in April. All emotions and feelings are gathered by dance artists from the exhibition’s audience and all those who gravitate around, enlivening the dancers’ bodies and reviving all original sensations. Five dancers will invite the audience to walk freely through different rooms and create their own courses based on their encounters with the artists. The quintets, trios, duets of dancers will take turn to perform, highlighting the characteristics of the areas they have walked through. Audience will be invited to interact with the artists. It will sure be a once-in-a-life-time experience.

A unique artwork is not only to be seen, but to be experienced.

“Beyond Absence” was performed on April 16 during the “Krossing – Over” Festival in HCMC.

After training at the Center National de Danse Contemporaine in Angers, Sébastien Ly became a dancer at the National Choreographic Center of Nantes. He founded the company Kerman in 2005 where he developed some work in situ, some of them were developed in museums and performed collaboratively with visual arts.
