Balet de neufs danseurs 

Created 31 January 1679 at the Académie royale de musique in Paris

Original duration: 5 minutes

The group

Amateur dance workshop at the Maison de la musique et de la danse (Bagneux, Île-de-France)

The group comprises amateur adult and teenager dancers who have been attending dance workshops for several years at the Maison de la musique et de la danse. Every year, they take part in a different project which leads to a production. For them, tackling a historic dance is an opportunity to invite a new style and new ways of approaching choreographic practice into their repertoire. Attracted by Raoul Auger Feuillet’s spatial structures and steps, they chose to take on the Balet de neuf danseurs – a rare choreographic work, as most of Feuillet’s notations is made up of solos and two-person dances.

The project

The Balet de neuf danseurs is the final choreographic work from the Recueil de danses composées par M. Feuillet, whose melody is taken from Jean-Baptiste Lully’s Bellérophon tragedy. This work, created in 1679 at the Royal Academy of Music, builds on technical work focusing on a variety of ornamental steps. The members of the Workshop present their own version of this composition, in the purest “Belle danse” style – today known as Baroque dance.

Feuillet, Raoul Auger

Raoul Auger Feuillet continues to be remembered as the author of La Chorégraphie ou l’art de décrire la danse par caractères, figures et signes démonstratifs, published in 1700, translated into English by John Weaver in 1706 as Orchesography. Or the Art of Dancing. In this reference work, where the term choreography refers to movement writing/notation, Feuillet, reflecting 17th-century analytical mindset, exposes his conception of dance as a system of signs – minimal movement units – whose combinatorics leads to the creation of steps offering numerous codified variations. Le Recueil de danses de bal et d'entrées de ballets which accompanies the Chorégraphie implements his theoretical principles which reveals the richness and complexity of Baroque movement vocabulary to us.

Chaumeille, Ivan

He recorded videos by the artist Elliott Causse “Fluctuations” in the context of his numerous installations and monumental frescoes. The film Propagations (2015) portrays the opening of the exhibition, which has the same name as his creation.
