C'est une colline

C’est une colline” (1990) is a short film by Arnold Pasquier. It was produced during a video-dance workshop proposed by Mark Tompkins as part of the 5th Manifestation internationale de vidéo et de télévision de Montbéliard. It was produced on Saturday June 16th, 1990 in a car park in Montbéliard (Doubs).  

Arnold Pasquier considers it to be "a group dance filmed in one take in a car park in Montbéliard. Five dancers interpret a choreography that I wrote to an extract from Marguerite Duras’s text “L’été 80” recited live"  


Remark by Arnold Pasquier in 2019 :  

"In the 90s, I clarified and developed my interest in contemporary dance. I made many recordings of shows, workshops, and classes, and danced a little. My first “step” was to participate in a video dance workshop organised in Montbéliard by the choreographer Mark Tompkins. Each workshop participant produced a short film. I chose a garage as my decor, mainly for the depth of field of its central aisle and for the possibility offered by its boxes to be turned into small stages where the interpreters could dance. It was my first choreography, inspired by Angelin Preljocaj.  Marguerite Duras’s text was recited by the English friend of one of the interpreters (I’ve forgotten her name, not mentioned in the credits, as well as two of the dancers’ names)."  

Pasquier, Arnold

Arnold Pasquier was born in Paris in 1968. After studying visual arts and cinema, he made tests in Super 8 and video, in which he developed a world of filmed newspapers and fictions. At the age of twenty, he approaches contemporary dance and collaborates with choreographers as documentarist and dancer. This experience marks the realization of a work where dance holds an important place.
From 1997 to 1999, he was received as a resident artist at the Fresnoy (Tourcoing, France) where he designed the installation "C'est ici que j'avais des baisers" (1997-1999) and produced about twenty short films, four radio design workshops For France Culture and dance performances capturing. In 1999, he presented the show "C'est merveilleux" in the Grande Nef du Fresnoy. He is the author of numerous films (fiction, documentary, video art), staged shows, scenographies, radio broadcasts. His work is articulated at the crossroads of these different disciplines. Winner of a residence Villa Médicis Hors les Murs (outside the wall) in Sao Paulo in 2004, he dances for Julie Desprairies in "La danse en accès accès", "Vue sur la mer" and "Là commence le ciel". He co-signs with her the video-dance installation "Les 3 contents", the result of the residence of the choreographer at the Manufacture de Sèvres (France).

Meeting with literature

Collaboration between a choreographer and a writer can lead to the emergence of a large number of combinations. If sometimes the choreographer creates his dance around the work of an author, the writer can also choose dance as the subject of his text.
