The intention of Kyriadie is to dive into the mystical world of death. Not the death that is dark, cold and frightening, but one that intrigues, attracts and intoxicates. One in which we might perceive a small angel or hear haunting music, or that we might want to "imagine".
For me, if there was a city or a planet in which souls would settle after leaving their physical mantle, it would be called "Kyriadie". A world of the invisible, a white lightness. A world flying between an aesthetic and fantastic representation in a performance space in which two musicians are present along with the purity and simplicity produced by a video projection of , for example, a white horse, water, clouds, etc.
I let myself believe that death is simply a passage to something else, a door to another sphere. And this other time is "Kyriadie".
Kyriadie is derived from the name "Kyrie," which are the choirs we hear in churches, particularly in the requiems.
Movement has the ability to point and bring out the feeling without being given an explicit intention. I will not advocate a belief. I want to make the public imagination fly before a performance set in a beautiful and poetic world.
This is precisely why I will use, in addition to choreography, acrobatics on ropes (veils) and music (live piano and violin).
Some poems by William Blake that reflect accurately the words that I want bring alive here: "If the doors of perception were cleansed, everything would appear to man as it is, infinite."
