Bloom, the project, is a documentary about the creative process followed by a live performance, the stage result of this documented process.
This evening allows the spectator to live all that the creative process has to offer, from the very beginnings of an idea, to the artistic work around this idea, and finally to discover, on stage, the culminating result.
Bloom, a documentary on the creative process
As the images unfold, the viewer is transported back and forth between the breathtaking landscapes of Ireland and the studio where four artists are hard at work. Finding inspiration in the four elements of nature, and combining different artistic disciplines, Liane Thériault (dancer), Nicolas Des Alliers (musician), Cassandre Émanuel (writer) and Delphine Véronneau (choreographer) work together to find the heart and soul of an eventual performance piece. Under the guidance of Delphine Véronneau, the artists dig deep to find their paths, constantly veering off in many directions, questioning themselves at every turn, all the while leaving the door open to spontaneity, allowing body and soul to be swept away by the intensity of that creative moment when all is possible. What is tested in the studio is rapidly explored in the fields, beaches, mountains, and in a pub in order to discover how a given piece might transform within a certain environment.
The unique constancy and heart of Delphine's work is to offer the spectator different pathways to access the same emotion.
Bloom, when fire takes
The curtain rises and, in the flesh, is the stage version of the team's work around the element of fire explored in the different environments that Ireland has to offer. It is an impulse, a motor, a mantra to the act of creation that pushes things forward, that provokes, that beats constantly and tears at one’s soul. Fire is action. To each human their own internal rhythm. Upon contact with another, two rhythms, two drives collide, clash, come to life, and at times, unite. Through the fear of burning too fast, of losing oneself, or of committing, Bloom, when the fire hits, offers the viewer the opportunity to enter the fire that stirs the human race. This inner drive that can illuminate and carry the gesture. This inner drive that can burn everything and leave its prey breathless, dismantled. Fire is passion. When you love. When you want it. When you go for it.
Who hasn't already felt the fire within?
