The project "The infinite body" is situated between a technological and organic universe. Research focuses on the movement experience without gravity, through the body of air acrobats. It combines circus, image, sound, digital and textile creation around the body as a medium, in order to analyze the relations real body/projected body.


Kitsou Dubois, weightlessness choreographer and Anne Sedes, composer, converge their practices of space and music and put sensors on the acrobats (Académie Fratellini trainees). They can perceive micro movements undefinable on earth as far as weight transfer is concerned, but easily identifiable through sound. They’re just like "on hold", listening to the sounds they create.
