opération métroscope

The Metroscope operation is part of the Nuit Blanche 2010 organized by the City of Paris. During the night of Saturday, October 2 to Sunday, October 3, a platform of the ghostly Saint-Martin station is invested by strange silhouettes. It is up to the traveler to read the signs that appear in the darkness...

About twenty students from Ensad are involved in the conception and realization of this ephemeral event. The idea is to propose a visual performance, a living animation mixing typography and choreography, poem and decomposition of the movement.

A team of 25 performers lined up along the platform, each frozen in a position, create with their bodies a movement suggesting the writing of changing words, which find their meaning with the speed of the metro.
