Groupe FLUO is my platform for interpreting the synergy between dance, sculpture and the human experience with my own principle of « Action sculpture ». Charles Ray has said “Consider the sculpture-like an act and not like an object.” This sentence, so simple, informs my exploration of body/object/space, or “action sculpture”.

Taking the form of an active and engaged workshop, the participants are invited to build collectively a stabile (mobile but from the ground). Composed from more than thirty pieces of wood and metal, the sculpture measures once assembled 1m40 in height and about 4m wingspan. After collective research, discussion and rehearsal, participants will re-invent collectively the construction of the h o m sculpture. The participants become aware of their place in relation to the other, space, mobile/stabile. As the stabile takes shape from each object resting on another, the participants move and manipulate the stabile in the gentle composition of balanced tension. As individuals move separately in motion, manipulating objects, choreographed movements come together as the collective create a harmonious and fragile work, leading to creative problem solving and active listening.
