MEMBRE FANTÔME (2023)
In January, Steven Michel started the first episode of his new serial project MEMBRE FANTÔME, which will take place in medical and prison environments. In collaboration with La Comédie in Clermont-Ferrand and the IME (Institut Médico-Éducatif) in Theix, Steven joined forces with sound artist Raphaëlle Latini, with whom he worked for his last solo DATADREAM.
For this first episode, they spent a week with twelve young people (aged 12-20) who are patients at the IME. They went into the journey of encountering alterity in oneself and dreaming the dark, whether through their own body, voice, or imagination. A sound archive has been created, which will be the material used for the next episode.
The series MEMBRE FANTÔME take the shape of a cadavre exquis, taking place in different locations and with the use of different media (video, sound, drawing, writing), creating a long sequence of interwoven stories and virtual correspondences.
