Uperqt

In the ring,

in the sonorous excitement of a crowd of impatient spectators, two strange articulated tubular structures face each other. Fragile and threatening, they appear as a curious mixture between animal ferocity and martial purity.

The gong resounds,

one of the two creature violently projects its upper arm forward, sweeping through space and whistling through the air over the spectators. Surprised, his opponent twirls around. The fight begins ferociously. A low pulse accelerates and grows louder.

Sometimes tactical and ritual, sometimes tense and charged, phases follow one another in a clever combination of mechanical and sound contortions. Fragments of electronic waves spurt out from the fighters to annihilate the space of the virtual audience. Vocal manifestations emerge and resound like exclamations of ecstasy in front of the beauty of the show.
