Conception Fanny de Chaillé, Nadia Lauro
Production Isabelle Ellul

Order for the 2013 edition of the New Festival, Espace 315 Center Pompidou.

In Espace 315, carte blanche is given to artist Fanny de Chaillé with the complicity of scenographer and visual artist Nadia Lauro for a show which places itself between theater, dance and performance. They know each other well ! Fanny de Chaillé likes Kurt Schwitters, James Joyce, Georges Perec, Robert Filliou, Bernard Heidsieck, Marcus Steinweg or Manuel Joseph… She knows what talking means. She’s interested in languages, the way they resonate like visual images, in short like a game of multiple meanings. Nadia Lauro puts it all into shape and light into a « clearing » space in which one can venture and settle for multiple daily events. 
LA CLARIERE is a proposal by artists Fanny de Chaillé, stage director and performer, and Nadia Lauro, scenographer and visual artist, for the Nouveau Festival 2013 edition. LA CLARIERE wants to take the language out of the page, so that it can be heard through either the voice of the poet, the writer, the musician, the stage director, the visual artist, the choreographer, and the theorist. To occupy space, to inhabit time with words, those same ones that enable us to exist as mankind. LA CLAIRIERE is an immersive visual environment, protective and open, conceived for Espace 315 at the Centre Pompidou. Archetype of the perfect place for speech, it takes shape following stories, gestures and sounds that inhabit it.
