Moving the theatrical conventions of time, place and action off the stage, Annie Vigier and Franck Apertet (les gens d'Uterpan) question norms that govern public space in order to reveal interpretations. Topologie’s five dancers will stride the streets of Long Island City following a graph of complex coding already applied in several European cities. Each performer will execute his or herown itinerary and elaborate a physical score of quotidian gestures. They will respond to the physical, human, and societal obstacles and contexts they encounter. As the process unfolds, the public space of New York will define its identity through the choreography and the reactions and interactions of passersby. A soundtrack consisting of sounds surrounding the dancers during their course will be progressively composed by Nicholas Martz on a dedicated web radio station.
