Story & inspiration: Marine Midy’s artistic projects, named Aquavitae, are created in, around and with water. They borrow from dance theatre, puppetry, photography and multimedia creation, building a world which exists at the intersection of these art forms. « Water awakens my desire for life and creativity. Through developing an ‘aquartistic’ practice and body of work, I create and play with marine mythology » For this work, the research is focus on lights and water, on water movements, on materials used for subaquatic puppets and masks, but also on the staging linked to the multimedia setup (screens and aquarium on stage). The stories evolve with poems, specialist interviews, stories, scientific speeches and the words of the Seamen in France, Indonesia and Croatia. AQUAVITAE is puppets and subaquatic videos show ( one for adults/one for young audience). Next to it, an exhibition kind of “curiosity corner” offer objects from artistic expeditions.
