Clara Delorme is an emergent artist who completed her education in Lausanne in 2017. She danced for various companies, including Yasmine Hugonnet’s, and then started her own artistic research. At Danae she presents two creations: Malgrés and L’albâtre.
Clara Delorme e Christian Garcia-Gaucher
Malgrés pays homage to our flaws and the minor failures of existence. The final “s” in the title is not a typo but a hint at Delorme’s dyslexia and the many rejection letters that she received in the past and often began with: “malgré (despite) the quality of your work, we are sorry to…”. In this piece the young artist is accompanied on stage by the musician Christian Garcia-Gaucher, taking us into a colourful variety ruled by deformity. Playing with immobility, her dance invites us to let ourselves go, to accept errors and imperfections.
Flesh is the main medium of this project.
A white body on a white square. Here the corporeal research develops through a work on apnoea and immobility, as well as on details. The artist invites us to examine the nature of the strange creature she embodies, alternatively an inanimate being, an animal or a human being. An allegory of mourning in the animal world.
