Deep Blue (in progress)
Deep Blue is a multidisciplinary project involving the intersection of dance and visual arts. Inspired by Yves Klein's Anthropométries, it addresses questions related to the concept of representation and the role of the body in the artistic creation process. Special attention is given to the concepts of author and performer, as well as gender-related issues that arise in the creative process of Klein's Anthropométries.
In Deep Blue, Simone Camargo draws on her experience as a dancer and graphic designer, as well as her practical and academic research in
the field of dance. Starting from one of her main research focuses, the quality of the performer's movement, she intends, in this work, to concentrate on the influences that variations in movement quality can have on the act of painting, and vice versa. Thus, Deep Blue primarily involves the creation of a dance performance for theaters and alternative spaces such as art galleries and museums, with graphic and video creations as secondary outcomes of the project's development.
This project is currently in the phase of artistic research and the search for partners and supporters. Two creation residencies have been conducted, one at the Maison de la Création et de l'Innovation on the campus of Université Grenoble Alpes, and another at the Centre Développement Chorégraphique National - Le Pacifique in Grenoble, France.
