Le Corbusierâ€™s utopia, to which the title pays homage, dreamt of bringing happiness to people through architecture. Flamand and Perrault question new forms of utopia linked to the advent of this city-world generated by the process of globalisation.
Dominique Perrault was given the task of creating the stage design came up with a device of mesh screens and metallic woven cloth manipulated by the dancers and relayed by a sophisticated system of camera/projectors. These enable the real body and its performance to be examined from unexpected perspectives and simultaneously fromdifferent viewpoints.
A way of shattering the traditional performance setting.
It is an epic production, well done and well performed. Itâ€™s
absolutely no surprise that people like it.
Marie-Christine Vernay â€“ LIBÃ‰RATION
FrÃ©dÃ©ric Flamandâ€™s approach to dance is one that advocates breaking down barriers between techniques and encouraging a dialogue between classical and contemporary dance. For ten years he has been working
intensively on the relationships between dance and architecture, collaborating with major architects.
His workâ€™s multidisciplinary perspective led to him directing the first International Festival of Contemporary Dance at the Venice Biennale in 2003 and heading up a workshop in the art & design faculty of the
University of Architecture in Venice. He has been running the Ballet National in Marseille since December 2004, after having directed Charleroi/Danses â€“ Centre ChorÃ©graphique de la CommunautÃ© franÃ§aise de
Belgique for close to 15 years. Up to 2009, he ran the D.A.N.C.E training programme alongside William Forsythe, Wayne McGregor and Angelin Preljocaj.
FrÃ©dÃ©ric Flamand is appointed Artistic Director of le Festival International de Danse de Cannes for the 2011&2013 editions.
