Mystic-Informatic

Two large metal structures, a computer from 1983, and small yellow 3D-printed sculptures: in a scenography evoking the ruins of capitalism and the waste produced by the constant renewal of technology, dance grows like an optimistic mushroom, the matsutake. Embodying a punk, apocalyptic and feminist approach, this piece gives power back to dance and exorcises our ecological despair.

Thanks

We would like to thank some of the entities that inspire and feed the mycelium of Mystic-Informatic: Eroca Nicols, Allison Blakley, Maria Sabina, Anna Lowenhaupt Tsing (The End of the World Mushroom, 2015), Sex Pistols, Paul Stamets, Terence McKenna, Fungipedia, Sylvia Plath, Starhawk (Dreaming the Dark, 2015), Amanda Baggs, and the mushrooms.

Audrée Juteau‘s experimental contemporary dance works often contain an element of unpredictability and seek to put human beings, animals and objects on equal footing. With Mystic-Informatic, she returns to collective creation with N. Zoey Gauld, Catherine Lavoie-Marcus and Ellen Furey. For this work, they imagine and borrow methodologies from the fungi world.
