“Bubbles” is an aquatic encounter between the breathtaking landscape of Martinique and the Miami South Beach Art Deco urban landscape, joining the bodies staged by two performers who had never met before.
For its adaptation to Miami, Henri Tauliaut will interpret the duo performance with Patricia Carby, (A.K.A. Nefertauri) a performing artist based in Miami, Florida. In 2010, Carby was chosen by Robert Battle, the artistic director of Alvin Ailey, to travel and perform “battlefield” as a lead dancer in Prague. Carby was awarded the Martha Hill young professional award in Manhattan New York in 2011, and received the Young Arts honora ble mention in 2009 in Miami.
Annabel Guérédrat is overall a choreographer, dancer and performer while Henri Tauliaut is a visual artist who defines himself as a digital artist before anything else. They both have some similar questionings and common artistic practices around the issues of domination, personal and collective mythology, as well as new notions such as post-identity, porosity, mangrove and queer-identity. Their creations are hybrids, between performance art and visual art. This performative duo realizes actions in natural or urban spaces with a high historical or symbolic loading. They restyle the Caribbean political and cultural fields in order to cast a critical and lucid glance at their neo-apartheid island society (namely Creole) in Martinique.
