The Red Continent / Le Continent Rouge
Sylvie Marchand. Project Presentation on 2012-07-03
“Continent Rouge” is an interactive installation linked to an augmented sound walk.

The “Continent Rouge” creative process activates relations between occidentdal sound poetry and the oral literature of Tarahumaras, and between the art of the performance and Danza Raràmuri of today.

This work is the fruit of a network collaboration of artists: Gigacircus (F), Escoitar (SP), Fabrica Cosmica (MX), whose founders are artists (respectively: film, music, performance) and anthropologists.

Sylvie Marchand was born in France where she trained both as a circus performer and as an anthropologist. She graduated from the Sorbonne in Paris with a PhD in anthropology and from the Institut National de Langues et Civilisations Orientales with a DS (Diplome Supérieur) in the African language Bambara. She is currently teaching at EESI. As an author and art director, she coordinates the activities of the Gigacircus media-art group. She has initiated numerous international mobile art works and projects. Her most recent project, an international collaboration, is AmeXica sKin, an interactive installation that questions the worldwide migratory flux. http://www.gigacircus.net
