"From the history of nudity to the the performer's nudity"

Abstract : My intent is to show how the skin can exert a fascination in today's artistic practices, how it can suggest by its breaches, for example, the hollowness of the body. Its image as a boundary, its expressive value or identity can mobilize extreme focus. A narcissistic envelope protecting from the world, it is often given as its primary object, an immediately available tool, a place for inscription and major outbursts. It is this object that seems to be at the heart of many stage programmes because it is at the heart of the visible and the identity. It is then revealed, at the origin of a true effervescence.
