This side must be done (creation)

This Side Must be Down is a collaborative performance that is proposed as the hypothetical possible post-apocalyptic genre productions. It is an opportunity to produce/reproduce the tools of these myths, to return to the forms taken by contemporary fears, halfway between the concert film and performative installation, a monstrous collaboration between analogue and digital.

All of these young Belgian and French artists are fascinated by the wastelands of the post-industrial universe and the nightlife, and they have decided to present an outdoor collective performance, This side must be done, which includes new media and improvised music in a reconstituted structure with what they have found or recovered in several abandoned places around Mons during their artist residency.

Collaborative Performance with Arnaud Biais (Fr), Vivian Barigand (Be), Iban Fernandez (Fr), Magali Halter (Fr) et Emmanuel Selva (Fr)

In the framework of the Émergences Numériques’ exchange between Arts2, Villa Arson (Nice) & Transcultures.

Magali Halter

“Magali Halter is actually another person. In her performances, she plays, or perhaps is it King Baxter who lives in her, a volcanic character that led to mental and physical wanderings toward a practice of writing and performing. Whether it’s a simple sleight of hand or his laborious ascent, drums on the back, of one of the Aeolian Islands, the practice of video, photography and installation runs deep in a relation to the occult and mythology thus forming a personal mythology.” Benjamin Laugier”
