The multidisciplinary artist Claudio Stellato experiments so unconventionally with bodies, materials and music in his works that they develop an obstinacy in their interplay. Documentary filmmaker Filip Jacobson visits him in France at his creative retreat and lets us immerse ourselves in his manifold play with materials. Claudio Stellato takes up to three years for his research processes, which explains the depth of the dialogue facets between bodies and materials in his pieces. Together with his partner Matthieu Delangle, who organically grew from a technical backstage companion into the role of co-performer on stage, he embarks on open-ended research processes. Machines, materials and movement sequences are tested with curiosity and exhaustively explored. In seemingly endless repetitions and details, the first traces of a new piece reveal themselves, which seems to emerge from the material itself like a sculpture under sculptural hands.
