A M O R is a choreographic project. The aim is to realize the mapping of a dream, where the architecture of the Angkor Wat temple slip into deeper intimate, traces of a dear missing person at the borders of this palace.
The dance has structured the space to new dimensions, where the world of the dead and the world of living can breathe, sustain in the air each other. Initially gestures, rituals, anchor points with simple objects of reality: a chair, a shirt, some wooden sticks. Than the structure, the design that magnificent these early forms of work between amulet and nostalgia, glass and fabric. At the heart of the movement, the design gives to the objects the membership of a true guide where content and form are intertwined.Venice Design Week and ICI Venice invite Charles Lemaire – actor, choreographer, Fanette Pesch – designer, Samuel
