Wege zum Glück
The project Wege Zum Glück (Paths to Happiness) is the first collaboration between the performer-choreographer Claire Dessimoz and the visual artist Nicolas Rawfast.
Under this deliberately naïve-romantic title hides a subtle - but thick - layer of gloom. At first sight, a formal work built on movements and wanderings. At second glance, a place vacillating between exhibition space and theater stage. Then, among the few disparate objects scattered here and there, the empty burgundy crates change status; they go from luxury waste, to an improvised library or container of ideas. Finally, references to the past emerge.
Thus, Wege Zum Glück evolves in three performative phases marked by several pauses; the traces left by the previous actions give the public the possibility to discover the different intermediate states.
