La mariée remise à nu par le binaire (The Bride Stripped Bare by the binary) is a hybrid performance, where a robotic structure takes over the human vocal system in order to compose a coded speech. Acting solely as a complex resonant box, the performer’s body is subjugated to the machine’s will to communicate with mutated generative speech. The work spawned from a research on identity, language, translation and media transmutations, through the lens of ‘pataphysics (science of exceptions and imaginary solutions). 
The project was made possible thanks to Conseil des Arts et des lettres du Québec, David St-Onge (robotics), LPM and Alexandre Burton (code), and Steve Theroux (medical)
