Diable au Corps refers to the restless body and turbulent spirit, which is always on the verge to take action. Unsatisfied with the current state, Diable au Corps represents the hunger for life and the search for identity .
Today identity is a concept that you can not pull away. In public discussions identity is often put forward for the interpretation of a cultur , a city or population group . Identity often refers in this discourse to the binding factor, the common denominator as a fact applicable to a whole group .
However, Meyer & Chaffaud approach the concept from a different angle: they conceive personal identity as a vibrant entity that evolves and changes under the influence of situations or the environment in which they are located. Their show is inspired by Dadaism and Surrealism and meets with energy, humour , poetry, and here and there a cautionary note .
