Echo-Nature – Cannibal Desire

Exhibition on view from March 13-April 17, 2019

Cannibal Desire responds to the powerful pulsions, longings, and fantasies of a violence from another time. In this project, the dimension of power defines an ambition, which aims at multiplying new sensations and experiences, free of any rule and form of control. The impetus of cannibal desire thus becomes a state of consciousness, a way to consider the world. The Cannibal Desire exhibition is composed of 11 Caribbean artists, who share an emerging artistic international journey. Through some selected paintings, sculptures, installations, photographs, videos and performances, the curator Jean-Marc Hunt, tries to explore a poetic state of transe, similar to an unlimited fantasy with all sorts of possibilities.

By Curator Jean-Marc Hunt and associate curator Marie-Vickles

The “Biosphere” Project is a three-act saga named: “The Alpha”, “Sapiens”, and “The Omega”. The first part, the Alpha, was created on Saturday November 25, 2017 in Sonis’s Cultural Center. José Bertogal choreographed its creation and created the soundtrack. Biosphere was presented by the Mounka Company and was co-produced by AGIC (Guadeloupean Agency of Cultural Engineering) and the Soulshine Association. The first act, The Alpha, represents the different steps to form Earth and life evolution: Big Bang, passage of time, the rain, oceans, emergence of life, first cells, homo sapiens. The dance also explores the four elements: earth, water, fire and air, and their fusion which created God.

This workshop will enable students to learn about the scenography of such a dance project, from the dance itself to the clothing, the soundtracks and the lights. The public will learn about the evolution of Humans and Beings, in the context of the “Echo-Natures” edition of the Tout-Monde Festival. The teenagers will be invited to partake in dance courses and lear.

With Company Mounka / Choreography and soundtrack José Bertogal, and  Jonathan Colombo Michael Larifla, Mickael Top, Kenya Stanislas
