Думи мої – Dumy Moyi

Moulded by underground culture, always walking a tightrope along the edge of genre conventions, this daring experimentalist who is as much a singer as a dancer and performer is shaking up the choreography establishment. Everybody wants him!
Here, he performs alone. A tight piece. An encounter in an ancient chapel. Countless daily shows. Physical closeness to his spectators. The theatricality of how François Chaignaud moves his body around the set spills over the boundaries of the everyday.

Chaignaud, François

After graduating in 2003 from the CNSMD of Paris, François Chaignaud has  collaborated with numerous choreographers (Alain Buffard, Boris  Charmatz, Emmanuelle Huynh, Gilles Jobin). Since the creation of his  first piece in 2004, he has taken up a multiplicity of roles as dancer,  choreographer, singer, actor, historian, and cabaret artist. His  work—which weaves the aspiration for dance of a comprehensive expression  delving into the porosity and potential of bodies—is early on  characterized by the singing and dance articulation (Думи мої, 2013). Degreed in history, he nourishes his art with in-depth research. The historical depth reflects in his own pieces  as well as in the numerous collaborations he has done, and continues to  do, including with cabaret artist Jérôme Marin (Sous l’ombrelle, 2011), Marie Caroline Hominal (Duchesses, 2009), and visual artist Théo Mercier (Radio Vinci Park,  2016). Between 2005 and 2016, Chaignaud creates with Cecilia Bangolea a  series of noteworthy shows that are showed worldwide, including Pâquerettes (2005–2008), Sylphides (2009), (M)IMOSA (co-written with and performed with Trajal Harrell and Marlene Monteiro Freitas, 2011), Dub Love (2013), and DFS  (2016). In 2021, he founds the organization mandorle productions, which  supports his desire to follow a line of artistic creation marked by  numerous collaborations. With Nina Laisné, he creates Romances inciertos, un autre Orlando  (2017). The piece is presented at the 72nd edition of the Festival  d’Avignon and brings together signing and dance around androgynous  figures drawn from Spanish Baroque folklore. They are currently  conducting research around partner dances in South America.

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.
