Hello! I am Nelly and will be with you on behalf of Vivian Fritz. I am a
dancer and have been working in her project "Seuil-Lab" since 2013 because
of my interest in real time composition at the beginning and later, in the
encounter of various times and spaces in a virtual place, what Vivian
represents as "Seuil", french word for threshold. I post below, in her
words, one of the interrogations we are working on today with Seuil-Lab.

"The idea of "place" which is found in a space outside of the rules
allowed by physics and geography confronts space and bodie to another
"possible reality" tha opens in distant communication. A "place" related
to other parameters that allow us to relate and co-exist in a hybrid world
between real/virtual, material/inmaterial. Dance is introduced in this new
system positioning itself and adapting its language to new possible forms
of choreography..."
