Ex Nihilo, Marseilles, France

Ex Nihilo is a company that we direct around a shared desire: to regard public space as the work place and the site for our shows. Public space that we understand in all its richness and dimensions: spatial, historical, social, poetic… public space, quite simply as the other place for art? Each of our choreographies is envisaged in situ and is strongly linked to the space in which it will be shown. The specific history of the site, the relationships that exist there, its atmosphere, all this “enriches” our writings, nourish the scenario and the set design of each one of them. We call these encounters with such places: Amalgame(s). Both performances and research, impregnated with feeling – ‘amal ‘al gam, the work of union, in Arabic – some of these encounters have formed shows that now figure in the company’s repertoire and are re-built every time they are shown… Others remain performances linked uniquely to a specific location.
