In 1954, Yves Klein drafted a ballet entitled La Guerre (de la ligne et de la couleur) –The War (between Line and Colour) intended to portray his physical and performative reflections on the immateriality of his art. On the basis of this fascinating – but incomplete – scenario, Petter Jacobsson and Thomas Caley opted to undertake their new creation at the initiative of the Centre Pompidou-Metz. They asked contemporary artist Tomás Sareceno—renowned for his spectacular installations and his penchant for artistic interdisciplinarity—to develop the scenography. Together, they invite us to share the experience of the famous French performance artist in which they see a utopian vision based on loss, the need to question and the conflict between reason and sensitivity: a performance embodied by human interaction with the divine.

A free adaptation of Yves Klein’s La Guerre (de la ligne et de la couleur)
