About L’Âge d’or
A diptych composed of a film and a performance, L'Âge d'Or is a journey that offers different points of view linked to a specific reality : a choreographic experimentation bringing together children with motor disorders and dancers, which combines physical techniques and new technologies.
The film captures the emotions of children involved in a common dance, in infinite negotiation with their bodies insubordinate to the representation, then within a device inspired by the « virtual reality », the children are equipped with glasses allowing them to see in real time what the dancers are seeing.
The author Eric Minh Cuong Castaing
Choreographer Éric Minh Cuong Castaing, founded the Shonen company - « teenager », in Japanese - in 2007. Since 2016, he has been an associate artist with the Ballet National de Marseille. Within his company, he has signed about fifteen creations - show, installations, performances, films... - linking dance and new technologies (humanoid robots, drones, augmented reality...). His projects, which he describes as « in socius », take shape within societal realities, in partnership with institutions (research laboratories, schools, hospitals, NGOs...) outside the art world. Eric M.C.C. explores the relational modes of bodies and their representations in the digital age, questioning the dualities of art/society, reality/fiction, nature/culture, organic/ artificial.
