The Show

 Presskit, Technical Rider & Presspics

A club placed there, in the middle of nowhere. Kadâmbini, handlebar mustache and aviator glasses screwed on his head, is ready for the most incredible journey of his life : a journey mode of nonsense, absurdity and manipulation, built of loops, lights and reversed situations.

Kadâmbini is a collaboration of the four creative artist of Iduun: Bart, director, Philippe, IHM ingineer, Alexandra, illustrator and Charles, sound ingineer.

Kadambini is an audio-video show, a meeting between the art of the stage and the digital technologies. The show combines upstream videos and animations, edited and sound designed on-stage. The stage play –manipulation of frames, objects or sounds, but also mapping, video FX and shooting – interacts with the movie projected on the screen, so that one can not exist without the other and vice-versa. We forget the computer and acting finds an important place on stage and on the screen.

The poetic world of Kadambini is inspired by Lewis Carroll, Homer, Saint Exupery and Terry Gilliam for a journey that follows its own dreamy logic.

Kadâmbini has been nominated to the Paris Young Talents Price 2011.
It’s really enchanting work. I love seeing this sort of live cinematic construction – visual performance as theater, cinema as musical instrument. It’s yet more evidence that live visuals can go far beyond just queuing up video clips.
Peter Kirn, Create Digital Motion
Probably the best and most inspiring experience during the festival was Kadâmbini, an audiovisual theater performance by the French group Iduun. It’s a dreamy Terry Gilliam like narrative made up of a mix of pre shot video, animation, acting, live video, video mapping, recorded audio and live sound effects.
Mikael Wehner (Swedish VJ Union)
Dans Kadâmbini, le défi est à son comble; l’expression audiovisuelle qu’on imaginait s’emparer sans partage, avec fatalisme, de nos habitudes, rend la politesse à « la scène » en laissant les acteurs vivants rejouer la représentation face à leur public. Nous atterrissons dans un vrai spectacle, et on peut même oser le mot « spectacle total ».
John Mansfield, Berlin, le 9 avril au Centre Culturel Hongrois
Ein Mix aus cinematografischen, animierten und gezeichneten Loops, Projektions Mapping, Theater, live Ton- und Bildkreation mit einem bestens gelungenen Spannungsbogen in einer Show vereint – das ist Kadâmbini! Diese Show gehört zu den Perlen des Live Cinema und ist richtunggebend für die Entwicklung der Kunstgattung.
