[The forgotten woman]

“Always a part of him, death would be now deliberately at the heart of its work. It would be the starting point for the workshop which led, in January 1981, to the presentation with the studio-theatre D'en Face of a work in progress, aptly entitled “Work in progress n°1”, then of “Requiem”, a piece composed in memory of his brother and performed at the Aix Dance Festival in 1981 […]. “

The part “Work in progress n°1” led to the film “L'oubliée”, a funeral march with song and masks.

“The five actors/dancers/singers, wrapped in a variety of shrouds, express this attraction-repulsion for the “black hole” of grief very well. The result bathes in the light and white fabrics of Eastern mourning.”

Yano, Hideyuki

Born in Tokyo in 1943, Hideyuki Yano came to the United States in 1961 to study literature, then returned to Japan and became interested in Noh theatre. In 1969, he choreographed his first works which reunited actors, dancers and musicians on stage. He settled in Paris in 1973 and three years later founded the group Ma Danse Rituel Théâtre, whose notable members included Elsa Wolliaston, Lila Greene, Sidonie Rochon, Mark Tompkins, Karine Saporta and François Verret.

His creations explore the limits of dance, at the edges of theatre and music, while his legacy – today partially faded and, at the same time, mythologised – will occupy a very particular place at the heart of new French dance. While European audiences were discovering butoh, from the work of Hideyuki Yano came the idea that dance is the expression, not of a technique, but of an interior state where the feeling and the desire are in the foreground. The artist brings to life visual universes with a magnetic power, in particular with “Géo-chorégraphie” (“Geo-choreography”) (1977), “Hana-Cristal fleur” (“Hana-Crystal flower”) (1979), “Au puits de l'épervier” (“At the Hawk's Well”) (1983) or the triptych “Salomé” after Oscar Wilde (1986). In 1986, H. Yano became the director of the Centre chorégraphique national de Besançon- Franche-Comté (National Choreography Centre of Besançon-Franche-Comté). He died in Paris in 1988.

Longuet, Alain

Cahen, Robert

 "Since the 1970s, Robert Cahen's research is haunted by the notion of  passing: passing from fix imaged to moving image, passing from a place –  and a time-to another, transformation offilmed reality and eye,  exploration of sound related to the image. His approach is part of an  always renewed dialogue between visible and invisible, narration and  poetry, confronting anotherworld, a world made different—beautiful,  disturbing-by metamorphoses of time and space." 

(Sandra Lischi)

The committed artist

Parcours

In all the arts and here especially in dance, the artist sometimes creates to defend a cause, to denounce a fact, to disturb, to shock. Here is a panorama of some "committed" choreographic creations.
