Le tour du monde des danses urbaines en dix villes
Tour du monde des danses urbaines en dix villes (Le)
Dances are invented everywhere. Styles and ways of moving spread, take shape locally, relying on or generating communities, lifestyles, ways of occupying space and making oneself heard there. Communities in turmoil, linked to social inequality and violence but also to energy and the intensity of urban life. Although linguistics has attempted to make an inventory of languages and the ways in which humans communicate and socialise with each other using words, phrases and intonations, an inventory has not yet been made of gestures, rhythms and bodily movements. What distinguishes one way of dancing from another? How is the subject mobilised in its relation to a symbolic or imaginary community? What common musical sources generate these dances without a stage or theatre, where every person can be alternately performer and spectator, judge and judged? How do gestures, music and style of clothing intertwine? To answer these questions, the choreographers embarked on a subjective and non-exhaustive inventory of a few urban dances that they encountered and learnt. In the course of his presentation, which veers between documentary enquiry, lecture and performance, the performer reveals a complex cartography in which voguing, dancehall, pantsula and many other dance forms are a reminder of the history of migrations, exclusion and struggle that these bodies bear witness to.
Born in Buenos-Aires, Cecilia Bengolea studied urban dance forms, before to pursue studies in anthropological dances with Eugenio Barba, as well as Philosophy and Art History at the University of Buenos Aires. In 2001, she moved to Paris and followed the training Ex.e.r.c.e. directed by Mathilde Monnier in Montpellier.
In dialogue with Levi Strauss’s œuvre Tristes tropiques, Cecilia Bengolea co-directed two videos in 2011: La Beauté (tôt) vouée à se défaire with Donatien Veisman and Cri de Pilaga with Juliette Bineau. As a dancer, choreographer and performance artist, Cecilia Bengolea perceives dance and performance as ‘animated sculpture’ and welcomes the fact that these forms allow her to become both ‘object and subject at the same time’.
In 2016, Bengolea was commissioned by the ICA for London Art Night 2016 to present a video installation into holographic mirrors at Covent Garden Market and perform an outdoor participatory dancehall practice in the historical West Piazza of Covent Garden with ballerina Erika Miyauichi and dancehall artist Damion BG Dancerz. Bengolea also works with artists Dominique Gonzalez-Foerster, Monika Gintersdorfer, Knut Klassen as well as Jamaican Dancehall artists such as Joan Mendy and Damion BG dancerz. In collaboration with Jeremy Deller (UK), she co-directed the film RythmAssPoetry (rap) commissioned by the Biennale de Lyon 2015. Their second film, Bombom’s Dream, shot in Jamaica in 2016, commissioned by Hayward Gallery London and Sao Paulo Biennial 2016.

Born in Rennes, François Chaignaud studied dance from the age of 6. In 2003 he earned his degree at the Conservatoire National Supérieur de Danse in Paris, working with, among others, the choreographers Boris Charmatz, Emmanuelle Huynh, Alain Buffard and Dominique Brun. Ranging from He's One that Goes to Sea for Nothing but to Make him sick (2004) to Думи мої (2013), he has created many performance pieces, using different forms of dance and voice, in a variety of venues, showing inspiration from many different inspirations. We see in his work the possibility of a body stretched between sensual demand and the power of the voice, as well as a convergence of multiple, heterogenous historical references – from erotic literature (Aussi Bien Que Ton Cœur Ouvre Moi Les Genoux, 2008) to the more sacred arts.
He is also a historian and has published at PUR L’Affaire Berger- Levrault : le féminisme à l’épreuve (1898-1905). His historical curiosity has led him to initiate a number of interesting artistic collaborations, notably with the legendary drag queen Rumi Missabu, of the Cockettes, with the cabaret artist Jérôme Marin (Sous l'ombrelle, 2011, which resurrected some forgotten melodies from the early 20th century), with the artist Marie Caroline Hominal (Duchesses, 2009), with the fashion designers Romain Brau and Charlie Le Mindu, the plastician Theo Mercier, and the photographer Donatien Veismann …
He is currently doing research on polyphonic repertory (Georgian, pre-Christian, and medieval).
