Ouverture de saison is a program of performances around three devices by Olivier Vadrot, organized at the École Nationale Supérieure des Beaux-Arts de Paris, from June 30 to July 2, 2016.
During three days students from the school as well as various guests (critics, teachers, artists…) will occupy Le Kiosque Électronique, La Tribune, and Circo Minimo. Performances, concerts, conferences, installations, hangings, readings… So many possible activations of these three spaces of action and meeting. Ouverture de saison is a set of relationships in which visitors also come to participate, an interdisciplinary program that is composed collectively.
Circuses, kiosks, tribunes: conscious borrowings of the inventions of the outside, forums not only of the word, but of the gesture, forms that are still seeking their representation. It is as a theater of operations that we have thought Ouverture de saison, by envisaging spaces in sharing between the visual arts and the living arts. Distributed time for whoever wants: about fifty hypotheses that follow one another in models of experiences within the real.
A project by Elsa Michaud and Gabriel Gauthier.
With the support of Théâtre Nanterre-Amandiers, FRAC Île-de-France and Festival Entre Cour et Jardins.
