Suresnes cités danse

Suresnes cités danse

Suresnes cités danse

Olivier Meyer, the director of the Théâtre Jean Vilar in Suresnes, invited for a period of three months (two months of rehearsals and one month of triumphal performances) five choreographers for five creations around hip hop. Interviews, moments of work and of shows trace these encounters where everyone found something to enrich their own creative work. 


After having auditioned more than two hundred young people, the choreographers Blanca Li, Régis Obadia, Farid Berki, Laura Scozzi and Karine Saporta made up their teams. They drew on this living material represented by hip hop expression and closely mixed it with their poetry and dramaturgy. “We take the codes, we turn them round, we transform them”, says Farid Berki. “We have created a show like a dress cut just to fit them” continues Bianca Li. And Karine Saporta confirms, smiling “I’ve the impression I’ve always danced hip hop!” While the dancers sometimes had problems confronting their energy with a precise gestural technique, set to a music and in the scenic space, everyone seems delighted with the experience: “She has preserved our authenticity” one dancer says.

Riolon, Luc

After studies of mathematics preparatory class and medecine studies, Luc Riolon begins to make films within the framework of his Faculty of Medicine, then met the famous choreographers of the 80s (Maguy Marin, Mark Tompkins, Josef Nadj, Daniel Larrieu Daniel, Odile Duboc, Josette Baiz, Angelin Prljocaj, etc.) with whom he shoots numerous films (re-creation for the camera, the illegal securements). In the 80s with the American choreographer Mark Tompkins he introduces the video on the stage, broadcasting live on big screens the images which he shoots with his camera by being on the stage with the dancers, mixing live images and pre-recorded images. With Daniel Larrieu he participates in the creation of the famous show WATERPROOF, the contemporary choreography which takes place in a swimming pool, by filming live) the dancers dancing in the water and mixing the live images with pre-recorded underwater images. This choreography has been shown in many countries (USA, Canada, Spain, England…)
Then he collaborates during 10 years with the famous french TV producer Eve Ruggieri for her programs" Musics in the heart ". He shoots with her of numerous documentaries about classical music, opera singers and dance. From 1999 he directs documentaries of scientific popularization, by following researchers attached to the resolution of a particular ecologic enigma. These two artistic and scientific domains which can seem separated are nevertheless, for Luc Riolon, connected by the same approach : the deep desire to understand the world, by the art or by the scientific research, and to restore it to the largest number. Among his recent scientific documentaries, we can quote for example " The Enigma of the Black Caiman ", Living and dying in the swamp " or " The Nile delta: The end of the miracle ". “Chernobyl, a natural history ? “ These documentaries of scientific popularization recently have been awarded in international festivals.

Les racines de la diversité en danse contemporaine

Exposition virtuelle

La danse contemporaine désigne des courants artistiques succédant à la danse moderne. Mais il est difficile de cerner précisément cette expression, tant elle inclus différentes pratiques et esthétiques. Aujourd’hui, le mot « contemporain » intègre des danses actuelles, urbaines, théâtrales, de différentes origines géographiques ou «culturelles». Une exposition virtuelle signée par la Compagnie James Carlès Danse &Co.
