In his spectacle-installation Bleu Remix, Yann
Marussich returns to a theme originally explored in Bleu Provisoire
(2001), a spectacle in which a mysterious blue liquid oozes through the layers
of his skin as though it were the final effect or by-product of his body's
inner processes. In Bleu Remix, the artist once more invites the viewer
to experience an intimate journey through the corners of his body. Each time
the spectacle is performed, a different (local) musician accompanies Marussich.
This unique, singular confrontation establishes a new relationship between the
sound and image. The meeting of the two artists brings an element of risk and
uniqueness to the event, as if the music explores the spectacle repeatedly,
resulting in new ways of perception.
Marussich's performance will be accompanied by live sound performances by artists David Schafer and Dominick Fernow.
Support for Bleu Remix at LACE is generously provided by swissnex San Francisco, the Swiss Arts Council Pro Helvetia, and the City and Canton of Geneva.

ABOUT THE ARTISTS
Yann Marussich, a unique character in contemporary dance, delivers performances that have a true impact on the audience. Since 1989, he has developed scores of performances and choreography that have been presented internationally.
In 2001, Yann Marussich choreographed Bleu Provisoire, his first totally motionless piece. Since then, his work has deepened in introspection, exploring the control of stillness while placing his body in direct confrontation with diverse solicitations and aggressions. He continues moving towards solo performance and body art in its poetic aspect. His most recent performances, which he considers examples of the development of his full-fledged style, have been presented in many festivals in Switzerland and abroad ...read more >
