Born on the water, shot between Istanbul and Athens in August 2022, this project is at the intersection of art (dance, film, music), travel (cruise, imagination, projections), and technology (NFTs, advanced ships, artistic treatment on visuals). This is the beginning of a search, a collective, a vision.
A project in support of ocean conservation and artistic creation
In line with the artistic values of the duo, 50% of the profits from the sale of NFTs will be donated to an organization that protects the oceans, the Maud Fontenoy Foundation, while the remaining 50% will be donated to INDEPENDANSE, a non-profit association promoting intercultural young creation around dance. Outside of this project, the dancers and the artistic duo participate in various events, including galas and workshops in France and abroad. Eugénie Drion, a dancer at the Paris Opera and co-founder of the INDEPENDANSE association, uses dance as a medium to bring together various arts, populations, and technologies. Albane Drion, a graduate of Penninghen in artistic direction, uses her talents to serve INDEPENDANSE, whether in filmmaking (clips, short films), photography, or general artistic direction. In addition to her work at the Alliance Française in Tashkent (Uzbekistan), she is interested in the emergence of new artistic opportunities, particularly related to the development of NFTs.
Indé.studio is a branch of the Independanse association. Born from a desire for more independent, mobile, and creatively ambitious projects, Eugénie and Albane created this studio by specializing in body movement in the digital space. With each project, their vibrant imagination is realized through mediums such as NFTs, partnerships, and encounters that challenge them to push their creative boundaries.
