24-09-2014 – C2M1 performance – Magali Desbazeille + Siegfried Canto

‘C2M1’ is a “media performance” exploring written and coded communication, from the invention of writing to mobile phone texting by way of printing technologies. The question raised by ‘C2M1’ is the following: what is the direct influence of new technologies on language? In order to provide an answer, ‘C2M1’ is conceived around the presence of a screen as well as several technological devices featured on the stage, such as telephones, a tape recorder, an electrophone, etc.

On this stage, two performers (Siegfried Canto, musician and Magali Desbazeille, visual artist), will make a point of using these communication devices in unexpected ways: the musician will use them as tools for musical improvisation, while the artist will see them as sources of real or fictional memories, belonging to humanity as a whole or herself alone…

History blends in the present while we try to envision a future, as obsolete technologies curiously compare to new means of communication. The performance will be followed by a debate (in French) with the artists.
