États Transitoires is a performance imagined by Ill-Studio in collaboration with the Paris National Opera. It is a visual exploration which highlights the correlation between body, spirit and architecture.
Ill-Studio invites the viewer to watch a ballet composed of multiple and variable personalities of the same individual, played by Axel Ibot, dancer at the Opéra de Paris. The film presents a return to the fundamentals of movement, simply subject to the laws of Newtonian physics before being governed by thought. It is a cinematic analysis of movement in space, free from choreographic pre-established ideas.
Here, the body no longer responds to the mind as a cultural or social event but as a mechanical translation within a well defined architectural environment.
Original music composed by Jonathan Fitoussi
British TV institution Channel 4 gave Ill-Studio carte blanche to direct a short film for their summer programming in 2016.
The short film sees a man walk through the city of Berlin carrying a found rectangular mirror on his way home. While the identity of the man is never revealed, only what he sees is reflected back to the viewer alternating from the neoclassicism of historical buildings to the brutalism of the DDR era, and the postmodernism that followed the unification of Germany.

Twisted Objects is an ode to popular culture in which obsolete generic ephemera are warped and distorted, reflecting an obsessive perception of mundane objects. Shot without CJI effects, Twisted Objects was exhibited in several cities such as Paris, Berlin, Madrid and Vienna. A special shortened edit was released in 2014 in collaboration with Nowness.
