[ballad II -> HERE ]

It is an internal ballad that the artist proposes to the audience. It articulates eight fictions (films and novels) whose common diegetic space is Antarctica.

The performance space is surrounded by filming equipment and video devices. In the center, polystyrene plates act as pack ice.
It is a story in the making, a mental ballad that activates and reactivates with choreographic gestures the eight zones of space, each linked to a fiction, called by substantives of the field of cinematographic narrative. Film dialogues and projected text pieces come to make the zones "talk" . The performance ends with a choreographic ballad, mixing all the gestures of activation, on the pack ice, which come to destroy it, on the song of Michel Berger "le paradis blanc" (known to be his last solo piece).
