The group

Compagnie Ballet Bross’ (Florac, Occitania)

The Compagnie Ballet Bross’, established in the Cévennes region for some thirty years now, promotes dance in rural areas through weekly workshops, classes, as well as encounters and creation sessions with dancers and choreographers. Its activities question the role of dance as a vector of gathering together, sharing, a receptive experience transcending geographical, generational and social divides. The members of the company, aged between thirty and sixty-two years old, have the opportunity to address all the phases of the creation process, moving on from the role of spectator to that of dancer, from the studio to the stage – as such linking together the questions raised through the work Publique.

The project

Publique, created in 2004, questions the fragile boundary which separates dancing for oneself from dancing for others. Set to music from the singer PJ Harvey, whose voice is one of the most distinctive in British rock, the movements slow down, repeat themselves, are decomposed. The members of Ballet Bross’ addressed this visual ambiguity to produce a dance swaying between public and private, intimacy and overexposure, immediacy of feelings and rigour of the composition.

Monnier, Mathilde

Mathilde Monnier holds a reference position in the French and international contemporary dance landscape. Her creations continuously defy expectations thanks to constant renewal. Her nomination as director of the Centre Chorégraphique de Montpellier Languedoc-Roussillon in 1994 has initiated a series of collaborations with people coming from different artistic domains. From artist Beverly Semmes to philosopher Jean-Luc Nancy from film director Claire Denis, Mathilde Monnier has always pushed the boundaries of a work she sees as an experience above all. Musical creation holds an important position with very varied collaborations within the fields of popular as well as scholarly music - jazz musician Louis Sclavis, composers David Moss and Heiner Goebbels, virtuoso platinist eriKm. More recently, she has used PJ Harvey's rock music but also the pink pop settings 2008 vallée, the show she co-created with singer Philippe Katerine. It came to a glorious end in the Main Courtyard at the 2008 Avignon festival. Fascinated by the concept of unison, she created the pastoral Tempo 76 show at the Montpellier Danse 07 festival on Gyôrgy Ligeti's music. In february 2008 she was commissionned by the Berlin Philarmonic Orchestra conducted by Simon Rattle to choreograph Heiner Goebbels opera, Surrogate Cities. More than 130 amateurs went on stage to take part to an opera dealing with the city and the power struggle within. The same year, she presented the burlesque duet Gustavia in which she appeared along with spanish performance artist La Ribot at the Montpellier Danse 08 festival. In 2009, she created Pavlova 3'23'', in reference to the classical ballet The Death of The Swan. In 2010, working in close collaboration with visual artist Dominique Figarella, Mathilde Monnier created the show Soapéra, and subsequently paid homage to Merce Cunningham by way of the show Un américain à paris. In 2011, together with choreographer Loïc Touzé and writer Tanguy Viel, Mathilde Monnier created Nos images, a work focusing on film. Together with Jean-François Duroure, she restaged Pudique acide / Extasis at the Festival Montpellier Danse 11, two duos that the choreographers created in 1984 and 1985.
