Nombrer les étoiles

Nombrer les étoiles is an immersion into a form specific to the Middle Ages, the ballad, a literary and musical genre of great sensitivity. The danced song, an ancestor of kinds to the pop song, contains several stanzas, a chorus but also plenty soul-searching.

Nombrer les étoiles is an album of nine danced songs.

In Nombrer les étoiles, dance and music are intrinsically linked, with the two mediums developing the same compositional structures.

The movement is composed from the rhythm of the poems, the duration of the foot, the word and the verse.

The bodies of the dancers are the emanation of the moods, colours and emotions of the music.

The songs of troubadours and trouvères, compositions by Guillaume de Machaut and Thibaut de Champagne, are performed and sung live by the medieval music ensemble Alla francesca. A sound design by Félix Perdreau based on these materials and the dancers’ breathing is spatialised on stage and in the audience.

Nombrer les étoiles imagines distant and secret worlds, dreams of a haven of peace, adopting beauty as a leitmotif. Shelters of light are built to mark out uncertain landscapes and provide refuge. Dark transformations take place on this journey into the depths of the soul.

Nombrer les étoiles is a poetic bubble, a moment of escape from the world.

Richard, Alban

Alban Richard discovered contemporary dance while he was pursuing literary and musical studies. From the late 1990s, he worked for various choreographers such as Odile Duboc, Olga de Soto and Rosalind Crisp.

In 2000, Alban Richard founded Ensemble l'Abrupt for which he created about thirty very different pieces, always in close interaction with a musical work whose writing and formal structure he questioned. Consequently, each creation opens up new research and a new performance style, setting itself apart from the previous one. The way he develops his shows, using restricted improvisations to devise the work directly on stage, encourages the performers to become creators of their own dance.

Alban Richard has collaborated with the Alla francesca ensemble, Les Talens Lyriques, Les Percussions de Strasbourg, the Ensemble intercontemporain, IRCAM and the Cairn, Instant Donné and Alternance ensembles, as well as with composers Arnaud Rebotini, Sebastian Rivas, Erwan Keravec, Jérôme Combier, Laurent Perrier, Raphaël Cendo, Robin Leduc, Paul Clift, Wen Liu and Matthew Barnson.

A prolific choreographer, Alban Richard is regularly invited by ballets and companies, both internationally (Canada, Lithuania, Norway) and in France, to create commissioned works.

Since 2015 he has been artistic director of the centre chorégraphique national de Caen en Normandie, with a project based on both his practice as an author and on connecting with the territory and its inhabitants.

Simon, Nicolas

Initiated to music and cinema by his two older brothers Nicolas Simon quickly becomes a cinephile and begins to direct short films as a teenager.

After a training in audiovisual professions at ESRA Bretagne, where he directed two short films in 16 millimeters, he met Emmanuelle Vo-Dinh in 2004 and discovered contemporary dance. In 2008, he directed « Making Rainbow », which traces the five months of creation of the first edition of the show "Rainbow" in Rennes.

He then co-directed «Le Grand Éléphant - l’Aventure des Constructeurs» an incursion of nearly two years in the premises of the association "The Machine" to follow with its builders the birth of the Grand Elephant Island of Nantes .

While continuing to work regularly with many choreographers like Alban Richard or Daniel Dobbels, he has since made several documentaries, commercials or video clips as well as three seasons of the series « La Tête de l’Emploi » for France 3.

centre chorégraphique national de Caen en Normandie

A place for dance open to everyone, where people come to see, dance and talk.

The centre chorégraphique national de Caen en Normandie is a space of shared projects that questions the world in which we live, a receptive place where dance is at the heart of an artistic, political and civic-minded vision. It is a centre for the creation, hosting, production and dissemination of choreographic works, a hub that acts as a resource for training and research. It is a place shared with artists, residents, associations and cultural institutions, a place open to artistic creation and the contemporary repertoire.

Awakening curiosity, stimulating the desire for knowledge, opening up to differences, sharing real artistic, intellectual and human experiences – these are the new challenges identified by Alban Richard for the centre chorégraphique national de Caen en Normandie.

Associated artists 2019-2021: Marco da Silva Ferreira and Mette Edvardsen

Companion artists 2020: Herman Diephuis and Michel Schweizer
