Based in Brussels, Monia Montali and Francois Bodeux have been developing since 2010 scenic work that lies at the boundaries of theater, dance, visual and sound arts.
Their work is shaped around a dramaturgy of image and perception. For them, the issue is to absorb different languages in order to render the scenic elements with a logic able to directly affect the audience sensations. Images of uncertainty and fragility invite us to suspend rather than to fix and to confine.
Their performances combine meticulous stage design research with choreographic work that is extremely precise. The notation of gestures, postures, actions and stillnesses very often refer to painting and photography.
Their scenic work has been coproduced by Les Brigittines, Charleroi Danse, workspacebrussels, BUDA Kortrijk, WP Zimmer, Pianofabriek, La Coop (tax Shelter of belgian government), and supported by WBI, WBTD and Fédération Wallonie-Bruxelles.
