Cloud Chasers

Cloud Chasers is the 7th part of « Mutant Stage », a series of short choreographic videos produced by Lafayette

Anticipation, Fondation d’entreprise Galeries Lafayette, as part of the rehabilitation of the building.

Throughout this exploration of smoke sculptures created by cloud chasers, (LA)HORDE seeks to give shape to

a latent moment within the Foundation’s transition.

The smoke occupies the space with a volatile and magical aesthetic, exploring its potential to welcome

artworks and artistic projects in development. It bears witness to a space in mutation, whose shapes are not

yet defined.

The cloud chaser’s posture, a new generation smoker, embodies an active expectation which gives rise to

an artistic exploration and emphasizes that the Fondation d’entreprise Galeries Lafayette already exists, and

that pieces are created within it. This film wishes to be a surprising and unexpected response to Lafayette

Anticipation’s commission, offering a radical gesture stemming from a different kind of dance and questioning

of spaces for creation.

(LA)HORDE - Marine Brutti, Jonathan Debrouwer, Arthur Harel

(LA)HORDE is a collective that was founded in 2013 by the three artists Marine Brutti, Jonathan Debrouwer and Arthur Harel.
Together they question codes of various artistic disciplines, especially contemporary live art and performing arts. 
At  the head of the Ballet National de Marseille since September 2019, they  have created choreographic works, films, video installations and  performances, that always evolve around the body in movement.
From  the interaction and the juxtaposition of these different media, they  develop scenarios and actions that take up radically contemporary themes  and questions. 

(LA)HORDE collaborates with communities of individuals on  the margins of the mainstream, and part of their art is also the  practice of practical solidarity. They have worked with groups of  seventy-year-olds, blind performers, smokers, juveniles... Contrary to  any form of hierarchy and cultural appropriation, they work at eye level  with the performers. (…) At the centre of their work is the body.  (LA)HORDE create works from their encounters with various online  communities and thus also investigate what has happened to dance since  the advent of the Internet. This is a theme that (LA)HORDE is very  passionate about and so they define their work as work on “post-Internet  dance".
