Héros Ordinaires

Invited by Sylvain Groud, Grégoire Korganow films rehearsals of the création of Héros Ordinaires - Ordinary Heroes, work for five dancers and four opera singers. 

Héros Ordinaires - Ordinary Heroes was created at Ma Scène Nationale Pays de Montbéliard, then presented at the Opéra de Rouen within the Festival Automne en Normandie and at Théâtre de Saint-Quentin-en-Yvelines a national theater. 

"The first minutes when I saw Sylvain Groud dance opened doors for me onto an unknown world for me, that of contemporary dance. Today I want to slip into the shoes of this choreographer, see him evolve, question, feel. It is surely also a way for me to question my own creative process. The film offers a sensitive and intuitive journey through a choreographer’s world, at the moment when he is creating a show. It doesn’t explain anything, it leaves the audience to generate their own impression by giving them a priviledged view at the heart of an artist’s work."

Groud, Sylvain

In 1991, received his diploma from the CNSMD of Paris, contemporary dance section and the same year received the prize for best performance at the Bagnolet competition with the  Gigi Caciuleanu company. From 1992 to 2002, he is a dancer for the choreographer Angelin Preljocaj. He is alo an award winner at the Concours International de Paris with his first choreography, and then creates for the National Theater of Bucarest in Romania and the Opera of Skopje in Macedonia. Created in 2002, the Compagnie Sylvain Groud moves to Normandy in 2006 and is in residency for three years in Vernon. In 2007, his work "Si vous voulez bien me suivre", is noticed. In 2009, the experiences shared with the cultural mission of the University Hospital of Rouen led the company to a residency at the Boucicaut retirement home at Mont-Saint-Aignan. In 2010, the Opera of Rouen places an order for Cordes, works for eight dancers, twenty-four musicians under the director Benjamin Levy. Continuing this questioning about the relationship between music and dance, he creates Héros Ordinaires in 2011 for four dancers and four opera singers and Collusion for four dancers and the electro composer Molecule. In 2010, Je suis descendu du plateau, was born of a meeting with the writer Maylis de Kerangal. The same year he is invited to meet five hip hop dancers at Suresnes Cités Danse, and creates Elles a piece that is continued with the solo Ma leçon de hip hop in 2013. In 2012, he orders a piece from the visual artist Jonathan Loppin. Together, they create Chambre 209, a choreographic and digital installation on four sides. In 2013, enthralled by Steve Reich’s music, Sylvain Groud creates a choreography to Music for 18 Musicians performed live by the Links Ensemble.


 With his in situ projects, such as People (over two hundered performances to date), Sylvain Groud is endeavouring to make dance burst forth where it isn’t expected. 


Since 2010, the company has been in residency at the Scène Nationale of Saint-Quentin-en-Yvelines and Sylvain Groud will be associate artist at the Scène Nationale of Montbéliard since 2011. With a repertoire of 21th creations ranging from solos to large ensemble pieces, the company tours with five pieces on average, over sixty performances each year, a third of which are in situ. He’s at the head of the Centre National Chorégraphique of Roubaix Nord Pas de Calais since the end of 2017.
