  • ○ Image : No
  • ○ Sound : No
  • ○ Lights : 1 spot on each side of the stage facing Anas at low intensity
  • First round of ritual : 1’30
  • ○ Image : Dual shapes with saturated matter
  • ○ Sound : low noisy drone evolving (from Amman city ambiances
  • ○ Lights : same as previous + a side spot a the opposite of the dancers entrance facing them, low intensity.
  • Second round of ritual : 1’20
  • ○ Image : small particles and drops shining , apearing and disapearing at different places of the screen
  • ○ Sound : development of the previous low drone with medium and high resonnant parts of the spectrum.
  • ○ Lights : same as previous
  • Third round of ritual and forming the line : 1’25
  • Until Kate joins Anas, everything remains the same but starting from this point :
  • ○ Image : liquid matters joining together and build a single floating mass above the head of the dancers
  • ○ Sound : a new layer of sound is added with inner cyclic movements
  • ○ Lights : same as very beginning
  • Second round of ritual : 1’20
  • ○ Image : small particles and drops shining , apearing and disapearing at different places of the screen
  • ○ Sound : development of the previous low drone with medium and high resonnant parts of the spectrum.
  • ○ Lights : same as previous
  • Scene 3 : the universe / orbiting – 1′ – Part 1 :
  • ○ Image : the water disapears and the circle multiply itself and we have several circular elements spinning
  • ○ Sound : low motor like sound is divided in several tinny ones with same dynamic shapes at a higher speed.
  • ○ Lights : side spots on the floor
  • Part 2 :
  • ○ Image : a giant vortex appears progressively and “eats” the whole image. ○ Sound : acceleration of the sounds going to merge in a single strong low frequency.
  • ○ Lights : is disapearing progressively HERE we propose to move the part «Zig-Zag» after «Equalizer» and have like 2’ of images and sound only.
  • Scene 4 : Compass – 1′
  • ○ Image : No
  • ○ Sound : percussive sequence upon notions of rebounds and offset which tends to structure a rythmic pattern
  • ○ Lights : side spots on the floor
  • Scene 5 : Equalizer – 2′
  • ○ Image : a mass of spaced drops apears on the whole screen. It allows to see the dancers and at the same time immerges them in a kind of aquatic matter
  • ○ Sound : development of a rythmic pattern
  • ○ Lights : side spots on the floor
  • Scene 6 : Zig-Zag – 1′
  • ○ Image : 2 strips with straight lines moving in opposite directions at different speeds
  • ○ Sound : de-construction of the rythmic pattern by use of shuffling and stretching of the sound matters/
  • ○ Lights : side spots on the floor
  • Scene 7 : End of the ceremony – 1′
  • ○ Image : vertical lines apearing very progressively and concentrated in the middle to create a surface almost round (gathering and crystallization of the liminal matter)… then the image disapears with the first snap of the dancers.
  • ○ Sound : Breathe morphologies thinner and thinner but at the very end, a big and quick crescendo of noise with a clean cut just before the snap.
  • ○ Lights : side spots on the floor at low intensity first then same screscendo as sound.
  • Scene 8 : Break the trance – 1′
  • ○ Image : No
  • ○ Sound : The first snap to the dancers trigs a very stable soft low sound during the Daniel’s solo. As the group is stepping backwards, a pulse is started and lasts until the end of the scene.
  • ○ Lights : side spots on the floor medium intensity
  • Scene 9 : 2 groups – 3′
  • ○ Image : Two big semi-circles on the side of the screen are spinning and inside them several little semi-circles or small vortex that group them together
  • ○ Sound : variation around a pattern of 3 elements derived from the count of the dancers mixed with a breath-like sound following a slow panning from left to right and back
  • ○ Lights : side spots on the floor low intensity
  • Final scene : the layers of liminality
  • A proposal for a scene without choreography – 1’30
  • A very dense and immersive matter made with a multitude of shapes but it becomes slowly a single big one that invades all screen space. A big wave of intense drops. Then this is covered by a layer of folds which comes down from the top on the whole screen.
