Introduction

Vincent Dupont

Stéréoscopia


With Stéréoscopia, Vincent Dupont offers children a unique experience. Humorous and hypnotic.

–Paris Mômes

Different yet similar, Stéréoscopia’s two layers let one glimpse the invisible, playing at tormenting the eye which no longer knows what to look at. Relief with a mystic encryption.

Stéréoscopia invites (young) audiences to an immersive and totally abstract experience.

—Dance Biennale 2016 Lyon





It isn’t a narration, rather an experience where light and objects speak of our changing emotions and where sounds create a rift between what we see and what we hear. This opens a space for listening to one’s own sensations.

–Vincent Dupont
 

In Stéréoscopia, Vincent Dupont pays tribute to the 16th-century Florentine painter Jacopo Chimenti who anticipated stereoscopy by making two drawings of the same subject viewed by one eye then the other. Vincent Dupont shifts not only the images but also the colors and sounds. He looks into the breach to find a new perception, in an exploration of the relationship between attraction and repulsion, desire and anxiety of loss, between one’s body and that of another.

 

The spectators are given a stereo sound device that connects them to the breathing of the performers. They find themselves plunged into a dark room that throws them off bearing, while undefined yet evocative sounds complete the troubling atmosphere. Two identical figures emerge from the dark, making identical movements and then start deviating imperceptibly. This horizontal ballet reverses the left/right perspective and creates confusion, threatening at any moment to reverse the frame. That is the power of Stéréoscopia, to take us into ourselves. But there is always a touch of humour, as offbeat as Jacopo Chimenti’s images. A radical work, Stéréoscopia brilliantly combines intelligence and poetry.

Vincent Dupont, Concept & Direction

 

Vincent Dupont’s works are some of the most remarkable that can be found in the contemporary creative scene. In the boundaries of theatre, dance, performance and plastic settings, which convey a patient research and a rare poetic depth. His works often question the notion of the image and the speed of perception. Every show is a unique experience.

Vincent Dupont is associated artist to ICI—CCN Montpellier. He has regularly intervened in several workshops and training sessions. In 2007, The SACD (Society of Dramatic Authors and Composers) awarded Vincent Dupont the “New Choreographic Talent” prize.
