MEA CULPA

Cloé Fournier (Australia/France)


In her latest dance-theatre ensemble work, Cloé Fournier re-evaluates the plasticity of the body as a technological landscape in scrutiny of the female form.

Fuelled by a science-fiction trans-human narrative, Fournier develops a movement aesthetic that blends and stretches contemporary and French folk-dance vocabularies to the extreme. Mea Culpa displays an uncanny microcosm, exploring and exploiting the idea of the human machine: part-mechanical, part-human.

…embodying the female form as the absolute centre of attention (Cloé Fournier) examines the metamorphosis of the female entity obliged to constantly adapt to a demanding society or to reconfigure, as a means of survival.” Mark G Nagle – Theatre Now 18/06/18
