Remy heritier lea bosshard l usage du terrain pantin 16 1 grid Interview — Rémy Héritier & Léa Bosshard — L’Usage du terrain D’avril à juin, le chorégraphe Rémy Héritier et la chercheuse en danse Léa Bosshard de la compagnie Gbod ! investissent l’espace du stade Sadi-Carnot à Pantin autour d’un projet de recherche : « L’usage du terrain », en partenariat avec les Laboratoires d’Aubervilliers qui exposent la documentation de son avancée jour après jour.

From April to June 2018, L’usage du terrain will develop an effective and collaborative body of research consisting as much in an « attempt to exhaust » a site in transition as in an experiment in preventive archeology. Five visual artists, a writer, composer and choreographers will be asked to contribute to the research based on notions of spatial composition defined by Rémy Héritier’s choreographic work : the trace, the relative space, the witness, the landmark, the threshold.

The Iranian artist Samira Ahmadi Ghtobi has been invited to contribute to the research as from the notion of the trace because of the unique work that she has deployed via drawing, writing or video practice on the subject of traces and memory. At the Sadi-Carnot Stadium from the 9th to the 28th April 2018, she will do the second publication, with a public restitution on Friday 4th May 2018 at 7 pm.

Annalisa Bertoni, literature researcher, will develop from the work by Samira Ahmadi Ghotbi and the subject of the trace, an analysis of form, creating links from sources of textual and/or narrative structures. She will draw from her own research on contemporary writing (Marguerite Duras, François Bon, Martine Sonnet, Jean-Philippe Toussaint, Marceline Delbecq, Suzanne Doppelt), with particular attention payed to creative processes and the relation of literature to visual arts.

“One could define the notion of the trace from what I do with it in choreographic scores. To envisage choreographic writing through a deposition of traces, carries with it notions of memory, visibility, invisibility, the intelligible and the present. This practice of writing the trace comes from one of my first choreographic interrogations and is anchored in the cartographic work of Ferdinand Deligny. Trace contains activity and the traced. For myself, working in space is a compositional practice with what there is and was”.
