& Warrior Goddesses
Glitches, Fairies & Warrior Goddesses is a series of performative and musical rendez-vous initiated by Gérald Kurdian and conducted with an evolving group of somatic practitioners, 3D designers and social sciences researchers.
It unfolds during collaborative residencies and performances aiming to allow Gérald Kurdian and their collaborators to experiment hybrid choreographic, visual, documentary and vocal practices exploring folklore, historicities of violence, body states, virtual worlds and queer mythologies to manifest a transgenerational memory of marginalized bodies.
By informing movement and singing of somatic (hypnosis and kinesiology in particular) and anthropological knowledge (ethnomusicology, socio-politics of minorities, futurology, media science 2.0, etc.) and by amplifying them with digital technologies (avatars, 3D design and printing, vocoders, electro- acoustic instrumentarium, etc) it becomes possible for Gérald Kurdian to experience the social function and ritual symbolic power of incarnation by using their body as a place of apparition/s and collective memories.
Thus, each of their collaborations is for them a place of a conversation between present and absent bodies, between the real or the virtual, as well as a polymorphic playground to draw and materialise the possible figures of a contemporary mythology of desires, violence and revolts.
It takes place in studios, in museum spaces or on theatre stages, in a simple set up: a riser platform where computers and notebooks mingle with electronic musical instruments, microphones, video screens or costume and make up elements.
It is shared with audiences during trandisciplinary events mixing live music, performance, choreography, filmed interviews and video art.
