    Régine Chopinot proposes a new public experience by confronting the stakes of choreographic creation with the fields of her perception via two spaces, two specific times: a stage, a screen.
    What questions arise in our visual, auditory, emotional memory when we see the same writing declined on two diametrically opposed experiences: live and film?

    piécette, chorégraphie Rhythm score, dance, voice and percussion
    piécette is a work about listening, the pleasure of dialogue, the game. Simonne Rizzo, a remarkably precise and beautiful dancer shares the set with John Bateman and his enigmatic and performative presence. They are accompanied by percussionist Curro Escalante Vargas with raw and virtuoso talent.
    piécette, film
    The piécette film was co-directed by video artist Jean-Baptiste Warluzel, who has been working with Régine Chopinot on all of Cornucopiae’s actions for the last 2 years. In July 2016, the film was shot in a hypnotic place of space and light: the hangar of the Mouture du Salin d'Hyères. The montage, alternating between close ups and wide angles, highlights the aesthetics and dynamics of the performance danced and played by the 3 artists. Nicolas Barillot's finely tuned sound work puts us in tune with the dancers' breathing and lyrics.
    + piécette au carré + takes place in the following way: first, the choreography on stage, followed by a 10-minute intermission; then, the projection of the film in the same space; followed by an exchange with the audience on the “live” and the “filmed”, in the presence of Régine Chopinot and Jean-Baptiste Warluzel.

    The film :

    Co-productions: Cornucopiae and Châteauvallon - scène nationale with the support of the Villa Noailles for the creation of the costumes. With the support of Châteauvallon - scène nationale for the 3 weeks of studio rehearsal in 2015 and Salins d'Hyères for filming in the hangar.
