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.
These two choreographers were stars of the Paris Opera ballet and extraordinary performers of both classical ballet and contemporary creations. Yet they’ve chosen to continue their work by choreographing and training the next generation. This is why they founded L’Atelier d’Art Chorégraphique (LAAC), a dance school that aims to give dancers their full share of “authorship”. They are energetic voices rising in support of an updated classical dance that refuses to be shut up in classicism.
