Sea Me!

Theatre performance and immersive installation
The sea contains many secrets and invites us to approach them if we are ready to listen. Its currents make us dance wildly, its colours and corals dazzle us, its seaweed tickles our nostrils, its mysterious creatures surprise us and if we look closer, this vast universe can reveal something deep within ourselves.

Sea Me! questions the origin of life, of our body, through the metaphor of the abyss and the aquatic element, developping this poetic by taking "the sea" as "the mother". Through the poetics of rites of passage, the sea is presented here as a liminal space, a space of metamorphoses, an engine of our quests and a connection to our deepest memories.

Sea Me! is a sensory discovery of another world, where touch, sight and sounds remind us of the intimate cocoon - the mother's belly - a room through which all humans have passed but nobody seems to remember it. With an interactive installation, we let the audience dive into our story like a dream.

Sea Me! pemiered at KOREDA Dans Festival the 8th of October 2021.
