„Divers Suit No.1” is a piece about the sensibility of a costume. Between absurdity and a feminine sensuality of flesh, two entities are in the same place, living the same things at the same moment but feeling and reacting differently to what is going on and vice versa. It could have been a chicken broth or a melting pot…for sure it is melting, moving and questioning.
Lysandre Coutu-Sauvé graduated from LADMMI, l’École de Danse Contemporaine de Montréal in 2007. She, from then on, participated in several multimedia, dance projects and performances in Canada. Exploring Butoh and art performances are also part of her curriculum. Berlin based since 2009, she works as a writer, art performer and dancer as well as on her own creations.
Chloe Serres studied ballet and contemporary dance at the Conservatoire de Musique et de Danse de Paris. She graduated in 2003 and worked right after that with different choreographers in France and in Germany. Based in Berlin since 2007, she currently dances in several projects in Europe, and also starts to work on her own performances.
Working mostly as a visual artist, Nicolas Fontaine (Montreal, Canada) also explores the musical boundaries through meditatif-iconoclastic-dark-kitsch soundscapes. Berlin based since 2008, his main inspiration sources are death, life, cosmos and glitters. Playing with ghosts, gods and demons, he brings light in people’s heart.
