Dance image on the ordinary story of a bullfighter. Dance image on an enumeration of violence, on the necessity of risk and the pure beauty of the gesture. Image of an androgynous body wrapped in a pink satin costume. The bullfighter's voice draws gestures for the dance. A dancer, an actor and a soprano and a choir of exceptional dancers. A bet for the Lyonnaise Véronique Ros de la Grange supported by Guy Walter. A superb project in search of the poetry of excess.

Ros de la Grange, Véronique

Born in Casablanca on 27 August 1959. Following her training as a dancer, she became a performer for Régine Chopinot from 1978 to 1983.


Between 1984 and 2005, she created and produced some thirty choreographic works where actors, dancers, singers and circus performers take centrestage and where no distinction is made between their disciplines, but between individuals and their particularities.


From 2005 onwards, she focused on affinity with text and on directing actors. This led her to the production side, yet she never overlooked the mighty power and the significance of bodies on stage. Since then, she has created a dozen productions based on the texts of contemporary authors.


Alongside her creative work, she works hand-in-hand with a myriad of theatre and opera directors as artistic partner and choreographer. 


She also works regularly in image media with directors on fictions, on dance videos and on advertising.

Since the very beginning of her career, Véronique Ros de La Grange has always advocated an educational approach with the actors, dancers and musicians whom she meets. She transmits to them, in particular, her receptive vision of the body on stage, of managing space, of signs on-stage and of sense, and senses, as part of an ongoing quest for precision and for letting go.

On another note, Véronique’s compelling desire to perform has never wavered.

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.

He has also produced theatre films: Song, Vu d'ici (Carolyn Carlson), Tant Mieux, Tant Mieux, 10 anges, Necesito and So schnell, (Dominique Bagouet), Im bade wannen, Flut and Wandelung (Susanne Linke), Le Cabaret Latin (Karine Saporta), La danse du temps (Régine Chopinot), Nuit Blanche (Abou Lagraa), Le Témoin (Claude Brumachon), Corps est graphique (Käfig), Seule et WMD (Françoise et Dominique Dupuy), La Veillée des abysses (James Thiérrée), Agwa (Mourad Merzouki), Fuenteovejuna (Antonio Gades), Blue Lady revistied (Carolyn Carlson).
