Synopsis

Presented in partnership with DeSerres

World Premiere

East and West meet within Albert Palma, a French artist and master of martial arts. After spending 10 years in Japan practicing the way of the blade and learning katas with the utmost precision, he haunts the night in his Parisian workshop. He describes his creative process, where he endlessly tries to find the perfect movement, as “looking for that one trait that will encompass all the others”. Working designs, rigorousness, and repetition allow him to attain silence, even though he affirms that “the deaf do not need to be silent”. Divided between black ink and white paper is his work, born of the dancing steel of his pen, a composition of abstraction and figuration filled with meditative contemplation.
