Get Higher

Get Higher, of the choreographer Wayne Barbaste, fact part of the repertory Modern French jazz. To cross this part of the repertoire enables us to return to the roots of Modern Jazz to France and to trace the evolution of it, with the image of the choreographic work of Wayne Barbaste who did not cease evolving since 1978. Wayne Basbaste builds his partition with very rich and subtle rhythmic reasons. The relation music/dance is very strong and present throughout the part. The music of Get Higher was composed by Bob Telson for the musical production Gospel At Colonus of Lee Breuer, a version gospel of Oedipus with Column of Sophocle, created for the first time at New York in the Eighties.

Barbaste, Wayne

Wayne Barbaste is originating in Trinidad and Tobago, his career of dancer begins in 1977, in Africa (Cie Astor Johnson) in the Caribbean (Cies the Vault and Douglas), to continue in particular in the United States with the company Alvin Ailey Repertory. In 1985, he leaves in the United States and settles in France. It is on its arrival in Cesson Sévigné (35) that it creates Cie Wayne Barbaste and that it starts a research task on the dance Jazz, with the aim of not break with its choreographic origins, while affirming its membership of current creation. Since 2000, this research is done more pressing and more precise. With one to two creations a year, Wayne Barbaste defines today his creations as Jazz Nouveau Concept.

Armstrong, Géraldine

Born in the Grenade island, Géraldine Armstrong studies the dance in London with Johnny O'Brien and Molly Molloy and continues her studies in Paris with André Glegolski, Jacqueline Fynnaert, Matt Mattox, Gianin Loringett. She co-founds in 1998 with Wayne Barbaste the Armstrong Jazz Ballet, who is called today "Black Source Dance Theater". Géraldine Armstrong knew to remain faithful to the single style of Alvin Ailey, composed of an alliance of the ballet dancing and black traditional dance, on the one hand, and of a brilliant comprehension of the most various musics and their relationship with the specificity of the movement, on the other hand.

Carlès, James

Since 2016, James Carlès has made the choice to make available to the public a selection of its videos.

Les racines de la diversité en danse contemporaine

Exposition virtuelle

La danse contemporaine désigne des courants artistiques succédant à la danse moderne. Mais, il est difficile de cerner précisément cette expression, tant elle inclus différentes pratiques et esthétiques. Aujourd’hui, le mot « contemporain » intègre des danses actuelles, urbaines, théâtrales, de différentes origines géographiques ou «culturelles». Pour comprendre et illustrer la notion de diversité dans la danse contemporaine, nous utiliserons divers créations de la collection du Centre chorégraphique ou de la Compagnie James Carlès Danse &Co, qui a mis cette idée au cœur de ses préoccupations.
