GEOGRAFIA / creation 2008

Choreographed by Frank Micheletti

“I would like there to be a feeling of duration, of passages of time, for these passages, these flows of substance of time to be felt as if they were vibrations, waves, particles mixed sound, with bodies, with light. Feelings that follow us and that evaporate, that overlap, motifs that are superimposed and that are blotted put, settings that slide so that more subtle presences, their modulations, may be discovered. Withdrawals, transmissions, disappearances: acknowledge what has occurred.

There is a play on telescoping, on infiltrations between intimate spheres and collective spheres that play on each other, in a never-ending flow. It is the body in movement, the body in the line of a trajectory: an agent of liaison, language of liaison and of separation”.

Micheletti, Frank

Born in 1966 in Nice, Frank Micheletti trained in theatre with Jean-Pierre Raffaelli and worked with Hubert Colas and Isabelle Pousseur. He then decided to become a dancer and trained with Catherine Diverrès and Bernado Montet as well as with Josef Nadj. He performed in “Aux rois couverts de cendres” (“To the kings covered in ash”), choreographed by William Petit, and since 1994 has participated in the creations of the Josef Nadj Company as a dancer (“Le Canard pékinois” (“The Peking Duck”), “Les Echelles d’Orphée” (“Orpheus' Ladders”), “L’Anatomie d’un fauve” (“The anatomy of a fawn”), “Woyzek”, “Commedia Tiempo”, “Les Commentaires d’Habacuc” (“The commentaries of Habacuc”)) and became his assistant for the production of the “Cri du caméléon” (“Cry of the chameleon”), produced with the Centre National des Arts du Cirque (National Centre for Circus Arts). In 1996, he worked with Cynthia Phung-Ngoc, Ivan Mathis and Laurent Letourneur, the collective Kubilaï Khan Investigations and collaborated on each of these creations: “Wagon Zek, dépôt” (1996), “Wagon Zek, dépôt 2” (1997), “S.O.Y.” (1999), “Tanin no Kao” (2001), “Mecanica popular” (2002), “Sorrow love song” (2004), “Akasaka research” (2004), “Gyrations of barbarous tribes” (2005, creative residence in Mozambique), “Akasaka research #2” (2006), “Koko Doko” (2006, Franco-German project), “Coupures” (2007), “Geografía” (2008), “4 Song” (2009), “Espaço Contratempo” (2009), “Archipelago” (2010-2011), “Tiger Tiger Burning Bright” (2012), “Volt(s) Face” (2013), “Mexican Corner” (Franco-Mexican creation 2013), “Your ghost is not enough” (2013-2014)… He also participated in CRASH LANDING, a series of improvisations led by Meg Stuart at the Théâtre de la Ville and participated in Ring, an interactive show by Felix Ruckert.
