Volte-Face is a performative installation which consists of large pieces of fabric with flexible tubes in their seam. The dancers Mami Kitagawa and Caroline Loiseau install the textiles in different ways: hanging them from the walls, stretching them through the space or standing them up right in front of the audience, creating sometimes more decorative and other times more spatial installations. With intervals in between the performances, the dancers change the installations from one to another following a choreography of different set-ups. Through this movement with their bodies and the textiles, the dancers in Volte-Face research presence in space.

Performed during the final presentation of my residency at Superdeals in Brussels, Belgium, November 2016.
