In the shape of a small caravan, this performative concert installation plays with the evocation of freedom and the exploration of wild spaces, while provoking a very singular intimacy. Caravan is a home 'away from home', and the return of the nomad who dozes in the depths of each of us.
Gwen Rouger invites a single spectator at a time into the caravan for between ten and twenty minutes to experience at very close range a performance of composer Charlie Sdraulig's piano piece Collector: a choreography of hands discovering the sonorous landscape of the keyboard. The spectator is seated right next to the performer, and this gives rise to an intense, intimate and warm one-on-one relationship. Meanwhile, passers-by can glimpse inside the caravan and perhaps hear a few sounds from this specific concert situation and hyper-sensitive musical zone, challenging them to question the role of the spectator and the audience.
