The Périmètre de Denver is a concept that borrows from both quantum physics and philosophy: it designates a state of confusion characterized by an altered relationship to identity and reality. Somewhere between a filmed essay, a performance, a transformation, a portrait gallery, and overlapping narratives, Vimala Pons is inspired here as much by Stefan Zweig as by hoaxes in general, or by detective series, their witnesses, and other fatal details.
The piece develops narrative structures as funny as they are incomplete, as melancholic as they are dynamic. Around Vimala Pons, monumental objects are enthroned, composed and off-center: so many clues of a story supposed to link seven characters in search of incarnation, who take possession of the performer in turn, like a proliferation of obscure temporal corridors that suddenly unveil their crazy architecture.
