TransHumance - MP2013
TransHumance, a participative and regional project, will be a unique artistic, political and human experience. More than just a show, it is a unique adventure featuring multiple cities, three countries and two continents.
TransHumance is a shared artistic experience that will leave a temporary imprint on the landscape as we travel through towns and villages at a leisurely pace. The word itself calls up images of cross-border journeys, changing seasons and the ties between people and animals. It is about migration, memory, mobility and multiplicity.
These ideas have all contributed to a poetic and metaphoric project. By travelling together for a while, we can break down the barriers that divide us. ThansHumance will create its own map based on the region's Euro-Mediterranean heritage.
At each stage of the journey, animaglyphes - choreographed movements of animals in the landscape - will be photographed from the air. These aerial views will be used to create a patchwork image of the region as TransHumance follows its course. Featuring the latest technologies, the images created will be used to develop different poetic voices on a "global stage", which includes social networks, the internet, film and multimedia initiatives.
The Centaur, an imaginary, utopian creature incarnating the meeting of man and animal, society and wilderness, humans and nature, will lead this mythical journey.
