interdisciplinary collective

t.r.a.n.s.i.t.s.c.a.p.e was created in 2003 by the architect/director
Pierre Larauza and the dancer/choreographer Emmanuelle Vincent,
who both wished to confront and crossbreed their respective disciplines
with visual arts and sonic arts.


Chambre(s) d'Hôtel - Performance by t.r.a.n.s.i.t.s.c.a.p.e Pierre Larauza

The collective, based in Brussels since 2004, brings together international
collaborators with multidisciplinary talents: video artists, computer wizards,
graphic designers, sound engineers, composers, musicians, writers, actors
and dancers.

« Our projects fit in our interdisciplinary research, and through them we
aim to look into the amalgamation between different media and to erase
the borders between disciplines. We try to create an ambiguous, nonhierarchical
and striking relationship between bodies, spaces, dramaturgy
and technology.

Physical and mental movement is a recurring theme in our creations, and
intercultural relations hold a prominent place. Transit locations (airports,
hotel rooms but also game centres, call shops, …) are the base for our
reflection on loneliness and the suspension in between here and elsewhere.
With a frivolous deconstruction and a meaningful relationship, we make use
of new technologies to criticise a world that seems subject to its own absurd

We are neither technophiles nor technophobes; when we think about
the relationship between the stage and technology, it is not as a simple
confrontation but as a means for mutual observation, in an underground
and low key fashion.

The movement from one medium to another is the key to the discourse
modulated by our performances, giving birth to hybrid and ever-changing

We question the place of the spectator and his implication from witness to
voyeur. Faced with a non-linear narrative and a complex (scenic or urban)
display, the spectator has to recompose, analyse and resolve. Our aim is
to upset the traditional representative system – to overthrow the codes.
Our narrative is composed of collages and deformations, with a particular
interest in disintegration, discontinuity and fragmentation, offering a new
form of contemporary fable to the spectator. »
