In 2016, Théo Mercier and François Chaignaud, with their Radio Vinci Park, orchestrated an explosive encounter between a baroque creature perched on high heels and a mysterious biker in a crash. In an ephemeral garage transformed into an arena surrounded by metal fences, the two beings engaged in a strange ritual, somewhere between courtship and death. Since then, the visual artist has multiplied his stage experiments, notably with choreographer Steven Michel (Affordable solution for Better Living; Big Sisters) and recently with the Outremonde saga, both exhibitions and performances, entirely conceived in sand. For his part, the choreographer-dancer has pursued his quest for a porous, penetrable body, unfolding a new facet of his rich artistic personality with each performance. For the reunion with the Reloaded version of Radio Vinci Park, there are now five of them on the dancefloor, which soon gets out of control and the mechanics of fantasy get out of control.
