Sous la surface (2012) is a dance performance choreographed by Artémise Ploegaerts in collaboration with Elisabeth Schilling and Virginia Scudeletti.
In a restructuring of accepted archetypes of control and observation, dancers in  Ploegaerts’ performance occupy the same space as the audience whilst the choreographer – usually hidden from view – exposes herself centre-stage. Under the scrutiny of all, Ploegaerts controls the dancers via remote control by making alte rations to a stage set in front of her, responding to unpredictable events on the ground but always with a master-plan in view.
