The exhibition Høpe ou comment armer ses jeux at the Centre de la Photographie Genève is an installation the brings together photography, scenography and sounds. The show emerged from the collaboration between stage director Maya Bösch (Compagnie Sturmfrei) and photographer Christian Lutz. The photographic installation after a stage production aims to question our society, our responsibility by showing the underground, and the world of the forgotten.
In November 2011, Maya Bösch, with her Compagnie Sturmfrei, realized Howl, the Allen Ginsberg poem at the Biennial Charleroi Danses (B). The photographer Christian Lutz accompanied the various stages of rehearsal and performance. During his trip to Las Vegas last December, Christian Lutz discovered parallels between the two juxtaposed realities: life and theater. This video provides you with a walk-through of the exhibition. A video interview with Maya Bösch is available after the jump.
