As a new initiative from the Palais de Tokyo started in the fall of 2017, La Manutention is a residency program dedicated to put forth the work of performing artists. From October to July, the goal is to invite six emerging artists, for a month each, and let them explore and experiment freely. It is a unique opportunity for them to showcase their craft while constantly evolving and opening up to a new demographic. They also have the opportunity to create their own cocktail to fully embody the space they are given, up to the taste in the guests’ mouths.
After Paul Maheke, It’s Our Playground, Eric Giraudet, Cédric Fargues and L’Institut d’esthétique, The Palais de Tokyo invited Regina Demina to perform her « fairy horror stories » from the 15th of February to the 15th of March. Tomorrow marks her last evening at the museum and she will be presenting « L’été meurtrier ». Accompanied by music producer Soraya Daubron aka Sentimental Rave, the artist will perform her EP which will come out on Kwaidan Records soon. More than a concert, the performance is built around sound but also strong visual and sensory elements. Analyzing relationships through the prism of Internet and social media, her performances are a reflection of our hyper-connected society. With hard-edged techno and gabber blaring through speakers and glitched imagery, Demina offers an intimate view on the more obscure parts of the digital world.
L’Ete Meutrier, March 15th at 7:30 PM at the Palais de Tokyo. Find more information here.
