Scholz, Uwe

Uwe Scholz was born on December 31, 1958 in Seeheim-Jugenheim, Hesse, Germany. He died on November 21, 2004 in Berlin, Germany.

During his short life, this former wunderkind created over 100  ballets, including major stage successes such as Die Schöpfung, Die  Grosse Messe and Bruckner 8. Scholz was regarded as a sensitive, highly  musical artist with a fine sense of humor, but again and again, he was  plagued by an excruciating perfectionism, self-doubts, and fears. At  times, they made work impossible for him.  

“Sometimes the great artist’s path  does not lead to laurel-wreathed solitude, but to deep despair,” writes  the ballet critic Klaus Geitel looking back on Scholz’s life. The film  Soulscapes is a highly personal, moving portrait of Uwe Scholz, who died  on November 21, 2004, at the age of 45. In one of his last interviews  with the director Günter Atteln, Scholz talks about himself and his work  with an unprecedented openness. “I’m drawn to symphonic music from the  Classical and Romantic periods. I simply need these soulscapes.” Uwe  Scholz

Plasson, Fabien

Born in 1977, Fabien Plasson is a video director specialized in the field of performing arts (dance , music, etc).

During his studies at the Ecole Nationale des Beaux-Arts de Lyon (joined in 1995) Fabien discovered video art. He was trained by various video artists (Joel Bartoloméo Pascal Nottoli , Eric Duyckaerts , etc).
He first experimented with the creation of installations and cinematic objects.

From 2001 to 2011, he was in charge of Ginger & Fred video Bar’s programming at La Maison de la Danse in Lyon. He discovered the choreographic field and the importance of this medium in the dissemination, mediation and pedagogical approach to dance alongside Charles Picq, who was a brilliant video director and the director of the video department at that time.

Today, Fabien Plasson is the video director at La Maison de la Danse and in charge of the video section of Numeridanse.tv, an online international  video library, and continues his creative activities, making videos of concerts, performances and also creating video sets for live performances.

São Paulo Dance Company

Artistic direction: Inês Bogéa

Creation: 2008

    

Created in January 2008 by the Government of the State of Sao  Paulo, The São Paulo Dance Company (SPDC) is directed by Inês Bogéa,  doctor of arts, ballet-dancer, documentary maker and writer.

Throughout this period, the Company has been seen by an audience of  more than 1.000,000 people in different countries (Argentina, Austria,  Belgium, Canada, Chile, Colombia, France, Germany, Holland, Israel,  Italy, Luxembourg, Paraguay, Switzerland, the United States of America,  Uruguay, Mexico, the United Arab Emirates), experiencing approximately  150 cities, totaling more than 1,100 performances. The Company has a  varied repertoire, ranging from classical to contemporary. Recognized by  specialized critics as one of the main dance companies of Latin  America, since its creation, the Company has produced more than 80  choreographies, including commissioned new works  of important names of international dance like Edouard Lock, Richard  Siegal and Marco Goecke, and Brazilian choreographers, as Rodrigo  Pederneiras, Henrique Rodovalho e Jomar Mesquita; and restages of works from Jirí Kylián, William Forsythe, George Balanchine, Nijinska, Nacho Duato among others.

SPDC searches for a connection with the audience by curiosity and  perception of the dance world in motion. The programs show the variety  of the repertoire of SPDC and the dynamics of Brazilian dancers. The  dancers are versatile and able to move from classical to contemporary  dance with a particular accent. The Company is a meeting place of  distinct artists – such as choreographers, light designers,  photographers, guest lecturers, restagers, writers, artists,  cartoonists, musicians, costume designers and others.

The Educational and Audience Awareness Programs, another strand of  action of SPDC, are divided into: Lecture For Educators, in which we  have the opportunity to dialogue about the backstage of this art; Dance  Workshops, a meeting to experience the daily life of the dancers; Open  Performances for Students and Senior Citizens, in which the proposal is  to see, hear and perceive the dance world; Programs focus on social  institutions and organizations aimed to take the dance culture to  different audiences and spaces; Dança em Rede (Dance Network), an online  dance encyclopedia on the Company’s website and a series of 39  documentaries about the History of Dance in Brazil.
