Une pluie d'été

"Une pluie d’été” (2017) is a medium-length film by Arnold Pasquier. He proposed to 8 dancers to create a dance in or around buildings by the Brazilian architect Lina Bo Bardi. The  film was shot in São Paulo and Uberlândia in Brazil on the esplanade of  the MASP, São Paulo’s art museum, in a hall of the SESC Pompeia, a  cultural centre with a fountain, in the garden beneath the Maison de  Verre, where the couple Lina Bo and Pietro Maria Bardi lived, in the  Teatro Oficina, the headquarters of the company José Celso Martinez  Corrêa, in the church Espirito Santo do Cerrado in Uberlândia and, last  but not least, around a waterfall in a wooded valley."  
 

Remark by Arnold Pasquier in 2019 :  

" In summer, in São Paulo, it rains at 5pm. This  film is a choreographic interpretation of Lina Bo Bardi’s architecture  by eight dancers who lent themselves to the game of inventing for each  place a dance where water, in all its forms, encounters a movement. 

The  film "Une pluie d’été” was produced as part of an exhibition on  architecture organised by the Ecole nationale supérieure d’architecture  de Paris-Belleville entitled "Lina Bo Bardi, enseignements partagés”. Designed  in partnership with the Sapienza school of architecture, Rome, it owes  its originality to the fact that everything produced (mock-ups,  furniture, exhibition structures, graphic material) was designed during  classes proposed in both schools. This  production was presented for a three-month period in the exhibition  spaces of the Ecole de Paris-Belleville (from October 26th, 2017 to  February 17th, 2018)." 

Pasquier, Arnold

Arnold Pasquier was born in Paris in 1968. After studying visual arts and cinema, he made tests in Super 8 and video, in which he developed a world of filmed newspapers and fictions. At the age of twenty, he approaches contemporary dance and collaborates with choreographers as documentarist and dancer. This experience marks the realization of a work where dance holds an important place.
From 1997 to 1999, he was received as a resident artist at the Fresnoy (Tourcoing, France) where he designed the installation "C'est ici que j'avais des baisers" (1997-1999) and produced about twenty short films, four radio design workshops For France Culture and dance performances capturing. In 1999, he presented the show "C'est merveilleux" in the Grande Nef du Fresnoy. He is the author of numerous films (fiction, documentary, video art), staged shows, scenographies, radio broadcasts. His work is articulated at the crossroads of these different disciplines. Winner of a residence Villa Médicis Hors les Murs (outside the wall) in Sao Paulo in 2004, he dances for Julie Desprairies in "La danse en accès accès", "Vue sur la mer" and "Là commence le ciel". He co-signs with her the video-dance installation "Les 3 contents", the result of the residence of the choreographer at the Manufacture de Sèvres (France).

Meeting with literature

Collaboration between a choreographer and a writer can lead to the emergence of a large number of combinations. If sometimes the choreographer creates his dance around the work of an author, the writer can also choose dance as the subject of his text.
