A creator of dreamlike metamorphoses, Philippe Decouflé draws from scholarly and popular sources alike, shattering rules by injecting elements of the spectacular, burlesque and bizarre into his art. With 'Contact', he has created a musical and visual comedy, a preposterous tale of our (super-) human passions. The sixteen dancers and actors summon up art, love, knowledge, greed and the divine; question the meaning of good and evil; explore the universal dual essence by injecting Faustian romanticism with Découfle's own particular brand of fantasy and the absurd. In this call to the audience's pleasure and imagination, only freedom counts, sung out through passion, fire and madness. On stage, contrasts are superimposed and atmospheres changed, from the chiaroscuro of Faust, a German tale by Friedrich Wilhelm Murnau, to the flamboyance of Jérôme Robbins' West Side Story. The colours of the costumes scream out of the broken black and white lines of the Expressionist set decoration. Pre-filmed or live-feed images – kaleidoscopic, shimmering or swirling – multiply the realm of perceptions and falsify the real. Dance, singing, music, acrobatics and magic combined with the video create phantasmagoria. Added to this, Philippe Decouflé deploys his original vocabulary in a permanent dialogue between joyful collective frescoes and restrained, intimate sequences, choreographed with skilfully orchestrated geometry and danced pantomime.

Decouflé, Philippe

Dancer, choreographer, director and art director


As a child, I dreamt of becoming a comic book artist. Drawing is usually the start of my creative process. I just throw out ideas and sketch out pictures that pass through my head. My culture is comics, musicals, nightclub dancing, and also Oskar Schlemmer, the Bauhaus choreographer. Discovering photos of characters from his Triadisches Ballett was a revelation for me. I had always wanted to work with simple geometric shapes like cubes and triangles. I liked seeing how these lines and volumes behaved with each other. Alwin Nikolaïs taught me the importance of light and costume, and the confidence you need to mix everything together. Technically, it was Merce Cunningham who taught me the most about dance. I was taking video courses he was giving in New York. It was fascinating. That’s where I learned how to solve problems of distance and geometry, and the basic principles of optics and movement. Tex Avery inspired me a lot in thinking up gestures that are almost impossible to do. I’ve always kept something of that desire to create something strange, extreme or crazy in my movements. I’m looking for a dance style that’s off-balance, always on the verge of toppling over. With influences like the Marx Brothers, for example, and in particular Groucho Marx, I’ve developed a taste for naughty risk-taking, and comic repetition of mistakes.
