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.

In 2016, Chanel commissioned Ill-Studio to give their take on one of their most iconic perfume, Chanel Bleu. The video, featuring the voice of French actor Gaspard Ulliel, shows a perfume bottle warped. This came as a reference to our previous film Twisted Objects.
