From Paris - Arianne Foks
Performing her new work 'Michel, ma belle'
Michel, ma belle is a live performance by Paris-based artist Arianne Foks that explores Michel Foucault's concept of 'Heterotopia', a concept used to describe places and spaces of otherness.
In Michel, ma belle five performers build up situations that confront the notion of territory in its aesthetic and political form. 'The Reader' is the voice, 'the Tap Dancer' is the rhythm, 'the Dears' interact with the audience and 'the Selfie' is online.
Arianne Foks' work often explores a fantasised version of everyday life in order to question accepted norms. Her poetic metamorphoses and incongruous associations blur the boundaries between personal realities and fictions.
Michel, ma belle is a new work developed for The Performance Studio, London.
Arianne Foks lives and works in Paris. Foks works across performance, drawing, writing, and film.
