NEONS Never Ever, Oh! Noisy Shadows is a concept and choreography by Philippe Saire for two dancers, Philippe Chosson and Pep Garrigues with LED ticker displays and neon lights as the only light source. The performance art piece deals with intimacy and separation, and verges on visual arts, following in the steps of 2011’s Black Out.
NEONS tells the story of two men about whom we know nothing, but who are going through a difficult time in their relationship. The action is refined, intense and at times, full of contained violence. Performed to a soundtrack featuring Maria Callas, the striking choreography strives on contrasts: power and intimacy, distance and violence, commitment and irony.
The piece is the second of an ongoing series called Dispositifs in which a visual concept starts the creation process. Here, the LED ticker displays and neon lights serve as the light source, décor and subtext to the performance, while the neon lights produce unexpected nuances of grey and delineate the stage in the halflight.
