Research on the common grammar of theater and image

Text, image, music, robotics and digital, each “incomplete” language in isolation takes on meaning in a common and synchronous grammar. From digital, MxM manufactures the organic and, if he handles technologies live, it is to write in intuitive interaction with the actors, to create areas of accidents, to restore a poetic dimension to the image. The MxM Collective's research on the common grammar of theater and image, on the fictionalization of reality, has led to a convergence of process, form and subject: film performance, a theatrical writing based on a cinematographic device in real time and on sight, in natural or scenic settings.

One coherent creative process

Mehdi Toutain-Lopez, the video creator and Smoder behind the scene said: “Smode gives us the ability to create images at the pace we dream of them. The research, the creative process and the final rendering all merge into one coherent process.”
