TU VOIS CE QUE JE VEUX DIRE ?
An improbable duo wanders through the streets of Montreal. One is the spectator-walker of Tu vois ce que je veux dire? He wears a blindfold; his connection to the world around him turned upside down. Noises and smells are intensified, his perception of space completely transformed. A new equilibrium occurs. As he progresses he lets his steps be directed by his guide, who to him is but an arm and a voice.
Imagined by choreographers Martin Chaput and Martial Chazallon, this journey of the blind explores research on the body by offering spectators a plunge into the world of the senses and a questioning of our connection to the environment and to others. Here dance is presented in unexpected fashion, in a voyage of emotions, sensations, encounters, discoveries and surprises.

MARTIAL CHAZALLON (LYON)
PROJET IN SITU
A choreographer and anthropologist, Martial Chazallon conducted research in South Africa on the mechanisms of the construction of identity with Ndebele visual artists, which led to the performance Wake Up! in 2000. It was the seed for choreographic research that he has since expanded with Martin Chaput, Daniel Soulières, Panaibra Gabriel and the visual artists Maciej Fiszer, Maryvonne Arnaud and Berry Bickle.
