For the Le MOI de la danse festival and as an echo for past performances, Les Subsistances has invited some of the big names in choreography who seem synonymous with contemporary dance today. Who am I when I dance or make others dance? What identifies me? How am I unique? How did that come about? Join these big name choreographers for 1½-hour conversations in which they’ll show video clips and talk about how they build their gestures, sharing a bit of their personal stories.
“The point of dance is to think with the body, to defend ideas with it. It doesn’t call on images, but on forces”, says La Ribot. This Spanish choreographer and visual artist, who has often been linked to the performance field, sees dance, the body, and movement as a new form of artistic expression, a manifestation of ideas, the adaptation of concepts through the body, engaged in the world of today. “I don’t feel dance, I think it”, says this highly unique voice.
