The film PAVILLON NOIR is part of a cross-disciplinary project that, in this case, brings together architecture, choreography and cinema. The work aims to create a space “on the border” (of artistic disciplines and categories as well as of genres of the moving image), exactly where the individuals and things transform themselves, change their status, their identity. As a double or an mirrored image of reality. The disinclination becomes their main characteristic. This other reality is made at times visible by obscure forces in the individual: the drive world causes brusque disturbances to reality, multiple incidents, abrupt breaks of the narrative’s flow. The film’s reality is at the same time strange and familiar. Like little “demons”, the characters parody with drive the fictional stereotypes of cinema or films for the television (sitcom, etc.).
