Dance choreography performed in the immersive environment of a moving cube, to explore the fleeting nature of dreams and the fugacity of life.

“In Japanese, "Hakanai" means ‘impermanent, fragile, evanescent, transitory, and fleeting’, somewhere between dream and reality. This very ancient word also captures an elusive aspect of the human condition and its precariousness, but also grounded in nature. It’s written by combining the graphic characters symbolizing ‘man’ and ‘dream’. This symbolic association is the starting point for a dancer who will face images revealing what lies on the brink of imagination and reality.”

Claire Bardainne & Adrien Mondot

Live animations based on physical movement modelling, on an original music score played live. After the quadrifrontal performance, the audience will be invited to explore the stage installation.

Adrien M & Claire B

The company Adrien M & Claire B creates digital and living art forms, ranging from stage performance to installations. It is co-directed by Claire Bardainne and Adrien Mondot, whose approach puts the human experience at the centre of technological issues, with a strong visual focus on the body and unique bespoke technologies created in-house.
They strive to create living digital art: mobile, handcrafted, short-lived, and responsive.

Claire Bardainne is a visual artist, graphic designer and scenographer. Her approach focuses on the imaginary realms conveyed by pictures and graphics, especially in their space-constructive capacity.
Adrien Mondot is a multidisciplinary artist, computer scientist and juggler. His researches question the movement, at the meeting point between the art of juggling and technology innovation.

Today, the Company has 30 associates, two performances and two exhibits touring internationally. Its Lyon headquarters also house a research and crea- tion studio. The Company is registered with the DRAC Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes and the Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes Region, and subsidized by the City of Lyon.
