In Japanese, the word ‘hakanaï’ is used to define the ephemeral and fragile. The French group, Company Adrien M/Claire B invites the public to join them in the illusory world of dreams. The audience is invited to peer into a cloth cube where a visual haiku of a dancer and thousands of dancing images is unfolding. Hakanaï is an impressive convergence of dance and visual art, of bodies and moving graphics, of reality and dreams.
Since 2004, Company Adrien M/Claire B has been connecting digital culture with the performing arts. The collective develops performances and exhibitions that combine the real with the virtual. By focussing on man and body within a technological framework, they create timeless, poetic works.
