Lemniscate

June 2023 production

The Lemniscate or infinite eight figure, is the representation of a concept that contains the idea of unlimited and continuity. This notion is also present in the metronome, while the pendulum refers to notions of physics related to gravity and a larger space-time dimension. During this exploration, several scales overlap and some linked notions will be explored live.

Two acrobats inhabit this singular space, experiencing its morphology, its symbolic and scientific meaning. We will see endless paths, shortcuts, loss of reference points, illusions, projections, searches for balance and mastery, distorted rhythms, endless movements, renewals, confessions, postulates, discordances and reconciliations…
