La Cloche de Verre

The richness of the gesture, the generosity of the writing where femininity – sanctified or demonic – is sovereign, the choreographer Maryse Delente is inspirited by pure dance, in a lyrical and expressionist vein. “A Cloche de verre is a hothouse for maturing...”: Maryse Delente encountered the world of Sylvia Plath, a young American writer who tragically passed away at the beginning of the 1960s. The words that she used to try and exorcize emotions, fears, confusion, the heavy and distressing void, the suffocating atmosphere that submerged her, triggered images that have gone on to nourish this new creation. The choreographer slides in under the tormented poet's “dome of distress” to create her own glass dome (la cloche de verre). Transparency, a closed space, flapping water, five feminine figures, beautiful and heartrending naiads, dance on stage and through image, to the rhythm of Gorecki's partition that enshrouds the whole performance with an intensely poetic and dramatic atmosphere.

Delente, Maryse

Maryse Delente studied at the Conservatory of Bordeaux, then became a dancer at the Capitole in Toulouse, the Royal Ballet of Wallonia and a soloist at the Lyon Opera Ballet. She was honoured with the first prize in the Cologne Competition in 1982. She founded the Maryse Delente Company in 1985 and established herself in Vaulx-en-Velin. 

Her creations have been performed both nationally and internationally. She has helped direct and has choreographed lyrical works (for the Lyon Opera and the Rennes Opera). She was the general director of the Ballet du Nord between 1995 and 2003, where she was in charge of artistic creation and the theatre calendar (Cullberg Naharin, Galili, Carlson, etc.).
Nominated for the International “Benois de la Danse” Grand Prix at the Berlin Opera in 1999 and made a Knight of the French Ordre des Arts et des Lettres in 1999, she celebrated the 20th anniversary of her career at the Théâtre National de Chaillot in Paris in 2003 with her creation "A la recherche de Mister K" which was presented by her new independent company.
The company established itself in Roanne. Here, she created the “Usine”, a choreographic residence.

Picq, Charles

Author, filmmaker and video artist Charles Picq (1952-2012) entered working life in the 70s through theatre and photography. A- fter resuming his studies (Maîtrise de Linguistique - Lyon ii, Maîtrise des sciences et Techniques de la Communication - grenoble iii), he then focused on video, first in the field of fine arts at the espace Lyonnais d'art Contemporain (ELAC) and with the group « Frigo », and then in dance.
   On creation of the Maison de la Danse in Lyon in 1980, he was asked to undertake a video documentation project that he has continued ever since. During the ‘80s, a decade marked in France by the explosion of contemporary dance and the development of video, he met numerous artists such as andy Degroat, Dominique Bagouet, Carolyn Carlson, régine Chopinot, susanne Linke, Joëlle Bouvier and regis Obadia, Michel Kelemenis. He worked in the creative field with installations and on-stage video, as well as in television with recorded shows, entertainment and documentaries.

His work with Dominique Bagouet (80-90) was a unique encounter. He documents his creativity, assisting with Le Crawl de Lucien and co-directing with his films Tant Mieux, Tant Mieux and 10 anges. in the 90s he became director of video development for the Maison de la Danse and worked, with the support of guy Darmet and his team, in the growing space of theatre video through several initiatives:
       - He founded a video library of dance films with free public access. This was a first for France. Continuing the video documentation of theatre performances, he organised their management and storage.
       - He promoted the creation of a video-bar and projection room, both dedicated to welcoming school pupils.
       - He started «présentations de saisons» in pictures.
       - He oversaw the DVD publication of Le tour du monde en 80 danses, a pocket video library produced by the Maison de la Danse for the educational sector.

       - He launched the series “scènes d'écran” for television and online. He undertook the video library's digital conversion and created Numeridanse.


His main documentaries are: enchaînement, Planète Bagouet, Montpellier le saut de l'ange, Carolyn Carlson, a woman of many faces, grand ecart, Mama africa, C'est pas facile, Lyon, le pas de deux d'une ville, Le Défilé, Un rêve de cirque.
