Seize the life to create the Moment, live it in the simplicity of the act which builds it…

The Fluxus movement wanted to break down the boundaries between art and life, The Place to Be is about bringing life to art and art to life.

Dance, music, objects, images, lights have no other function than to be there, free and present to what can happen.

As an act of resistance to the notion of productivity, this work considers the space of creation as the pooling of materials, experiences, references and sensitivities.

And question the social place of the artist in our ultra consumerist society.

“Art is what makes life more interesting than art”. Robert Filliou

Hélène Taddei Lawson has combined physical, artistic and philosophical performance ... The perception of space is disconcerted, in a dematerialized world where the human seeks a different way. An intense exchange between the bodies. At the same time, sensual, cold, violent and passionate...

Antoine Giannini - Corse Matin - May 2016

A desired theatricality, an inviting voice over the art, Art, inseparable from life. Highlights but banal. The Place To Be questions the necessary and the superfluous. Movement and gesture suggest a reflection that could take the tone of a tale of ordinary everyday life.

Michèle Acquaviva - Pache - JDC - June 2016
