VIBES collective is laureate of the first Dansathon who took place simultaneously in Liège, Lyon and London in September 2018. This choreographic and audio collective performance is co-produced by Orbe and La Maison de la Danse (Lyon). It allows participants to meet and share a moment of dancing – a bit like a Flash Mob, in a given place – a park for example - or in different cities or countries at the same time.
Equipped with headphones, the dancers improvise together their dance through the audio-guidance of a choreographer. The application also allows them to co-create music according to their movements and trajectories in space.
Vibes project was born at the Dansathon 2018, of which he is a laureate. A collective formed on this occasion and collaborates during stages of residence at La Maison de la Danse (Lyon) for the creation of Vibes and its presentation during a series of events starting from autumn 2019.
The goal is to make dance accessible to everyone and to bring people together. Allow people who are physically distant or alone to connect for a moment of shared dance and co-created music. Vibes connects people across borders by enabling an ephemeral moment of harmony between bodies, wherever you are. And creating a sense of collective presence despite the distances.
To reach this goal, three European creation teams mixing choreographers, musicians and digital artists, will create five choreographies declined in 5 European languages. This work is mentored by VIBES collective, leaded by Eric Minh Cuong Castaing.
Each creation process is hosted respectivly by ICK, C-Dare and Bassano del Grappa. The protocols will be performed by a large and diverse audience during a series of events and festivals organized by the project partners and other venues.
