schème II (2002)

schème II (2002) continues to further develop the concept of schème by building on the knowledge gained and comments gathered along the way from the different contexts of diffusion. Each of the schème scenes is a step forward in a complex and rich direction full of ramifications, the substance of which is far from being depleted. The creative process, previously experimented with, opens new doors and allows for the themes of schème to be revisited and developed further. The relation to time, memory, and space clearly appear as the themes of this work. schème II, which represents the articulation of kondition pluriel’s own language, led to the group’s recognition on the international scene, through its tour in well-known festivals committed to interdisciplinary art, electronic art, and contemporary dance. The work was presented around the world in galleries, theatres or specific places, for which it was adapted in situ each time.
