Hommage d'un demi-dimanche à un Nicolas Poussin entier

On the stage of “Hommage d'un demi-dimanche à un Nicolas Poussin entier”, three women and a man segue the figures of contrasted bodies, varying the postures, the attitudes and the situations of perception, in a suite of living and motionless scenes.

Hélène Iratchet questions, with this first group work, chance encounters and absurd situations that are created from the simple and almost trivial grouping together of several characters in a same place : what impact can an isolated gesture have on a collective body, how does it transform itself ? How can the characters be/do together without looking at each other, without speaking to each other? How can a detail focus all the attention in such a complex image?

Iratchet, Hélène

Choreographer and dancer, Hélène Iratchet was trained successively at the Conservatory and at the Centre de développement chorégraphique (Centre for Choreographic Development) in Toulouse, and then at the Merce Cunningham Studio in New York. She perfected her improvisation techniques with Julyen Hamilton, Katie Duck, Patricia Kuypers, Mark Tompkins and Marco Berrettini. She performed for Gisèle Vienne and Etienne Bideau-Rey, Thierry Bédart, Christian Rizzo, Thierry Baë and Tiago Guedes.

She created a solo around the work of the American writer Richard Brautigan for the “Printemps de Septembre” (Spring in September Festival, Toulouse) in 2004, then pursued her career from 2005 to 2007 in Fresnoy – National Studio of Contemporary Arts. In 2008, whilst in residence at the Vivat in Armentières, she created the duo “Jack in the Box” and then joined the Malterie in Lille in 2009.
