Barroco

Conception and dance Dominique Duszynski, Ennio Sammarco
Composer and musician Josselin Varengo

BARROCO: a Portuguese word, used in jewellery to indicate an irregular pearl. It is the root of the word "baroque", the artistic and literary trend of the XVII century, characterized by an aesthetics of exuberance and strangeness in reaction to Lutheran bareness and severity. Barroco originates from the wish of Dominique Duszynski and Ennio Sammarco to share an artistic experience. These two interpreters havee always followed very different artistic routes which nevertheless never ceased crossing each other. Two choreographers who usually pursue their artistic research along different paths.
Together, they chose as their starting point Dave Brubeck's compositions, because of their irregular rhythm, repetitive and obstinate in character, and their sense of swing, of lightness, roundness and blitheness.
Barroco explores the principle of freedom within an extremely structured picture. With the invaluable complicity of Josselin Varengo, a musician active in Lyon and intimate with the projects of the Woos, this musical reference, so familiar, becomes perturbed, diverted. He derives from it new sound perspectives which affect the two dancing bodies. Barroco is a dialogue among three people: each of them stirs, in the two other protagonists, new sound and choreographic responses, and plays with his/her own apparition and disappearance. Barroco, a triangular form which excludes neither oneness nor doubleness, where the affirmation of the self implies the relation with the other, is a strange artistic creation. In it, the elegant nonchalance and the extreme rigour of the gestures harmonize in one breath, exultant and liberating at once, and above all necessary.

Agora, cité internationale de la danse

Agora, cité internationale de la danse

Formerly a Ursuline Convent, then a women's prison and barracks, the story of Agora, International Dance Center begins in 1990. Georges Frêche, then mayor of the city of Montpellier, granted Dominica Bagouet to establish the Choreographic Centre in this old building downtown. Since 1986, the ‘Montpellier Danse' festival has been setting  a scene in the Ursulines - now named Agora Theater - to host the festival performances. In 1994 and 2001, two successive construction phases leaded to building the National Choreographic Centre and ‘Montpellier Danse'. In 2010 the Agora, International Dance Center was born. The final phase of work has allowed for the complete restoration of the building, now devoted entirely to dance, with two rehearsal studios, a fully restored outdoor theater and the Room Béjart - a former chapel hosting conferences, movie projections, performances... The Agora, International Dance Center, brings together all aspects of choreography: creation, public reception, artists residences and hosting... which makes this Centre a unique place in Europe.
