While Kevin Jean’s first solo, La 36ème chambre, turned established
order on its head by turning the body upside down. Now, his 2012 duet,
Derrière la porte verte, explores potential new alterations in our relationship with gravity. Suspended in mid-air, constraints become a kind of playground made up of balance and imbalance, which disturb our
perception. In 2014, Jean came up with an outdoor version of that piece, using trees. It was an opportunity to extend his sensitive, gesticulatory adventures in contact with an environment in flux.
