Scotoma – Clémentine Télesfort & Lisard Tranis

Lisard Tranis & Clementine Telesfort


Scotoma is a dance piece that speaks about attention.
An invitation to reflect on what captures and directs it.
Can we perceive what we overlook and notice what is hidden at first sight?

The piece invites us to observe the encounter of two people immersed in their own world.
They will give each other a chance to discover other perspectives, allowing them to broaden their gaze towards what they didn’t know was there.

But will they really be able to appreciate it or will they end up losing sight of it?
