Centaure is a live audio & video performance by Franck Vigroux (music) & Kurt d'Haeseleer (video)
Centaure "is a postdigital road trip to the Anthropocene. Inspired by the emerging idea that the human impact on the world and the climate is so great that we have entered a new geological era after the Holocene," Centaure " imagination is the result of a virtual 'safari’ to an advanced stage of the Antropocene in the future. It is a world populated by cloned creatures and mutations of species that seem to have been artificially rebuilt from contaminated DNA.
Man has disappeared, absorbed by technology, which has become anthropomorphic. Everything breathes, smells, rot, transforms ... The grass, the trees, the water, the clouds, everything is contaminated with a barely visible, but omnipresent technology.
Human flesh has exploded and has morphed with machines to give birth to a perverted new nature.
