The interactive tale « BLA BLA » by Quebec director Vincent Morisset, a National Film Board of Canada (NFB) production originally conceived for the Internet in 2011, will be at the Gaîté Lyrique in Paris from April 7 to May 6, 2012, as an installation offering the public an interactive experience.
Adapted to the venue and occupying an entire floor of it, the installation « BLA BLA » proposes a “cinematic” experience that invites the public to move from one chapter to another of the story and physically interact with the work in various ways. Each chapter explores the fundamental principles of human communication and immerses the public in a unique world of sounds made up of music and words broken up and put back together. Using the techniques of motion capture, traditional or contemporary animation and drawing, the tableaux vivants of « BLA BLA » exude an aesthetic freedom that makes the public forget technology and liberates the imagination.
In his films, videos and web projects, Vincent Morisset explores the cinematic language suited to the computer, the narrative potential of interactivity and the relationship between human being and screen. With « BLA BLA », he attempts to redefine “Once upon a time” for the digital era, a story in which the spectator is the actor.
