Danse savante - danse populaire

The ancestral separation between scholarly dance and popular dance continues to the point that "dancing" and "knowing how to dance" still designate two different activities today: popular dance practiced by all, and scholarly dance reserved for professionals only. Contemporary dance has echoed this cleavage, even if this opposition tends to diminish recently, some choreographers joining the scientist to the popular to invent a new form of dance.
This is the case of Cecilia Bengolea and François Chaignaud, who together do not hesitate to mix styles - Jamaican dub, dance on pointe, expressionist dance, twerk, house...

Chaignaud, François

Born in Rennes, François Chaignaud studied dance from the age of 6. In  2003 he earned his degree at the Conservatoire National Supérieur de  Danse in Paris, working with, among others, the choreographers Boris  Charmatz, Emmanuelle Huynh, Alain Buffard and Dominique Brun. Ranging  from He's One that Goes to Sea for Nothing but to Make him sick (2004) to Думи мої  (2013), he has created many performance pieces, using different forms  of dance and voice, in a variety of venues, showing inspiration from  many different inspirations. We see in his work the possibility of a  body stretched between sensual demand and the power of the voice, as  well as a convergence of multiple, heterogenous historical references –  from erotic literature (Aussi Bien Que Ton Cœur Ouvre Moi Les Genoux, 2008) to the more sacred arts.
He is also a historian and has published at PUR L’Affaire Berger- Levrault : le féminisme à l’épreuve  (1898-1905). His historical curiosity has led him to initiate a number  of interesting artistic collaborations, notably with the legendary drag  queen Rumi Missabu, of the Cockettes, with the cabaret artist Jérôme  Marin (Sous l'ombrelle, 2011, which resurrected some forgotten melodies from the early 20th century), with the artist Marie Caroline Hominal (Duchesses,  2009), with the fashion designers Romain Brau and Charlie Le Mindu, the  plastician Theo Mercier, and the photographer Donatien Veismann …
He is currently doing research on polyphonic repertory (Georgian, pre-Christian, and medieval).

Bengolea, Cecilia

Born in Buenos-Aires, Cecilia Bengolea studied urban dance forms, before to pursue studies in anthropological dances with Eugenio Barba, as well as Philosophy and Art History at the University of Buenos Aires. In 2001, she moved to Paris and followed the training Ex.e.r.c.e. directed by Mathilde Monnier in Montpellier.
In dialogue with Levi Strauss’s œuvre Tristes tropiques, Cecilia Bengolea co-directed two videos in 2011: La Beauté (tôt) vouée à se défaire with Donatien Veisman and Cri de Pilaga with Juliette Bineau. As a dancer, choreographer and performance artist, Cecilia Bengolea perceives dance and performance as ‘animated sculpture’ and welcomes the fact that these forms allow her to become both ‘object and subject at the same time’.

In 2016, Bengolea was commissioned by the ICA for London Art Night 2016 to present a video installation into holographic mirrors at Covent Garden Market and perform an outdoor participatory dancehall practice in the historical West Piazza of Covent Garden with ballerina Erika Miyauichi and dancehall artist Damion BG Dancerz. Bengolea also works with artists Dominique Gonzalez-Foerster, Monika Gintersdorfer, Knut Klassen as well as Jamaican Dancehall artists such as Joan Mendy and Damion BG dancerz. In collaboration with Jeremy Deller (UK), she co-directed the film RythmAssPoetry (rap) commissioned by the Biennale de Lyon 2015. Their second film, Bombom’s Dream, shot in Jamaica in 2016, commissioned by Hayward Gallery London and Sao Paulo Biennial 2016.

Exposition Corps Rebelles

The exhibition Corps rebelles invited the public to discover contemporary dance. She presented the different approaches of the dancing body, illustrated by emblematic choreographies.

The question of interpretation was also at the heart of the exhibition with eight versions of The Rite of Spring created by eight great choreographers. The exhibition continued by treating notation as a tool for memorizing and transmitting a gesture.
