"Performer comme l'herbe pousse"

Abstract : Since the beginning of the Covid crisis and the introduction of « barrier gestures », it has become difficult or even forbidden to touch each other. However, touching, caressing, hugging, massaging, grazing, does not only allow you to feel through your skin, it also contributes to showing your attachment, to taking others into consideration, to caring for people and the relationships you have with them, to holding, maintaining your desire to live, and protecting your immune system. Some activities have been decreed useful and indispensable to having a smoothly running society, and others dangerous, even futile. Imagination, play and pleasure are however as indispensable as breathing, as shown by the active involvement of artists on « dematerialised », « real » or clandestine stages, refusing to remain passive in the face of the ravages of solitude, isolation and lack of physical connection. Since the first restrictions, our Hantu duo has never stopped creating, presenting our work, inviting artists and spectators to interact with us, because we feel the vital need to touch and be touched, to act on the world, even to laugh and sometimes burst out in anger, to remain ourselves.
