Femmes Bûcherons

This installation brings together female volunteers over 50 from the Lorraine region in France who, through their strength and energy, cut logs, throw axes, construct and build ephemeral wooden totems.

Such, in a few words, is the concept behind Dorte Olesen’s installation Femmes Bûcherons, which will occupy for 5 days the Place Stanislas in Nancy to open the evening performances at the Opéra National de Lorraine.

She wishes to make female strength and community spirit more visible, make an aspect of rural life visible to city dwellers, and show the degree of physical force required to produce energy.

However, her project also aims to show the knowledge possessed by women over 50 and to encourage the meeting of different cultures.

“I hope that the spectators will feel the smell of the logs and soak up the force of attraction of the physical cooperation and community spirit existing amongst women. Women over 50 form an interesting group. They place no importance on appearance”.

Femmes Bûcherons is a display of female strength.

Olesen, Dorte

Dorte Olesen, a Danish-Swedish creative genius, is a choreographer who smashes all rules.

On the scene for over 20 years, she completed her studies at the Danshögskolan in Stockholm, then went on to create several incredible works, including Ful Flicka (2004), Pudel (2005) and, more recently, Boy and Boy (2007).

Gender issues always play a central role in her work, as do ideas on identity and belonging. Femmes Bûcherons is her first major performance in an open public space and is performed by non-dancers.
