CAROLYN CARLSON COMPANY

Prologue

Choreography and dance: Carolyn Carlson
Live music: Guillaume Perret (electronic sax)

 

Crossroads to synchronicity

Creation 2017
French Riviera Première
Performance for 6 dancers


Choreography : Carolyn Carlson

 

A piece of astonishing beauty that speaks of love, encounters, intense emotions and singular circumstances, in a powerful and luminous way. As a prologue, Carolyn Carlson deploys her 'visual poetry' in an improvisation carried by the simultaneously synthetic and organic music of Guillaume Perret.

Star choreographer Carolyn Carlson, who revolutionised contemporary dance at the Opéra de Paris in the 1970s, revisits her creation Synchronicity, inspired by Carl Jung in 2012. Based on filmed sequences, the six performers dive into short stories describing unpredictable and decisive moments in life. As dance explores the magic of coincidences, wonder ensues!

MIÉ COQUEMPOT – BÉATRICE MASSIN – BRUNO BOUCHÉ

OFFRANDE

Creation 2021
French Riviera Première

 

Performance for 7 dancers
Conception : Mié Coquempot
Choreography : Mié Coquempot, Béatrice Massin et Bruno Bouché
Music : Offrande Musicale

OFFRANDE is the testament work of Mié Coquempot, who chose to share it with two other choreographers, reconciling several styles of dance under the aegis of the music of Bach.

L’Offrande musicale, composed by Johann Sebastian Bach in 1747 is considered the masterpiece of an era. This musical work serves as the common thread of this piece, in which Béatrice Massin and her baroque dance meet the ‘more classical’ universe of Bruno Bouché, under the chiseled gaze of Mié Coquempot, who launched this unifying project just before his death.

DAMIEN JALET & KOHEI NAWA

Planet [wanderer]

Creation 2021
French Riviera Première

 

Performance for 9 dancers
Choreography: Damien Jalet – Set design: Kohei Nawa

 

With fascinating pieces that will remain in our memory for a long time, Damien Jalet is one of the most unique choreographers of the present day.

Continuing on from Vessel , which created another world from the anatomy of the dancers, Planet [wanderer], like the second part of a diptych resulting from the collaboration of Damien Jalet and Kohei Nawa, engages itself in an intermediate territory, between science and mythology. Through the physical confrontation of the human body and various experimental materials, elements and gravity, the piece activates a visceral and tragic tale of love between humans and the planet to which they are linked.

All I need

Creation 2021
World Première – Coproduction Festival de Danse Cannes – Côte d’AzurPerformance for 9 dancers

Choreography : Edouard Hue
Music : Jonathan Soucasse

In a world premiere at the Festival de Danse Cannes – Côte d'Azur France, Edouard Hue, rising star of Franco-Swiss choreography, asserts his unique signature with All I Need

In a hostile and tactical environment, how do we bring the world together and avoid all-out war? The choreographer Edouard Hue, through a choreographic structure inspired by the game of Go, lets himself be carried away and inspired by the following urgent requirement: to propose a new fundamental need, that of listening between individuals.
In the first part, the duo Shiver – carried by Edouard Hue (Swiss Dance Prize 2019 Exceptional Dancer) and Yurié Tsugawa (performer of major roles in Angelin Preljocaj’s repertoire) – diffuses a thrill of excitement, cold and fear, rendering the spectacle truly thrilling.

São Castro and António M Cabrita
choreographers of the Companhia Paulo Ribeiro (Portugal)

For São Castro and António M Cabrita, the relationship between movement and music is essential. It is magnified, in this excerpt, by the interpretation offered by three dancers – to the music of the final String Quartets composed by Beethoven.

JÉRÔME BEL

Isadora Duncan

Creation 2019

French Riviera Première

Concept : Jérôme Bel
Choreography : Isadora Duncan
With Elisabeth Schwartz et Chiara Gallerani

 

The iconic figure of modern dance, Isadora Duncan, is magnified here in this portrait dedicated to her life and work by Jérôme Bel, alongside the dancer Élisabeth Schwartz.

Combining spoken moments and danced solos, this portrait revives the memory of Isadora Duncan’s free dance, based on five of her emblematic choreographies. Through her great freedom of expression, the visionary American choreographer – privileging spontaneity and naturalness – offered the bases of modern dance, at the origin of contemporary dance.

From Thursday, December 9th to Saturday, December 11th

Organized by Côte d’Azur University, CTEL, EUR CREATES, in partnership with Cannes Dance Festival
Scientific coordination: Federica Fratagnoli and Marina Nordera, with Cathy De Plée, Céline Gauthier and Nikita Pere

Terrains: a deliberately plural term that defines the roots and territories of dance research, giving rise to transdisciplinary practices. Geography and cartography are drawn as much from real places marked out bodily, as from virtual spaces woven on the web or in the imagination. Bringing together researchers and artists, Atelier n°10 will test the vitality and richness of anchored and immersive proposals.

Massiwa

Creation 2020
French Riviera Première
Performance for 7 dancers
Choreography: Salim Mzé Hamadi Moissi

Choreographer Salim Mzé Hamadi Moissi, who travelled from Comoros with his company Tché-Za, delivers a powerful dance that offers a tender and humorous look at his native country.

A double billing allowing audiences to discover the universe of Salim Mzé Hamadi Moissi, as he opens up new horizons to hip-hop dance. Combining a virtuoso and imaginative hip-hop, revisiting traditional Comorian dances and music, Massiwa showcases a rather athletic, ardent, impetuous and always controlled masculine dance.
