Un film d'après la pièce Arise de Christian et François Ben Aïm

I remember saying goodbye

Dans ce nouvel épisode, les frères chorégraphes Christian et François Ben Aïm s’emparent de la majestueuse Sainte-Chapelle de Paris. Un  instant envoûtant durant lequel se mêlent musique épurée signée Piers  Faccini et danse contemporaine tout en sobriété.
De retour pour une  5ème édition, « Monuments en mouvement » fait pénétrer le public au cœur  de certaines des plus emblématiques bâtisses de France, telles que  l’abbaye du Mont-Saint-Michel ou encore la Sainte-Chapelle de Paris !  Des lieux qui sont à redécouvrir au travers du spectre artistique, grâce  notamment à des performances chorégraphiques et circassiennes de  plusieurs artistes, invités à occuper avec leur création ces espaces  chargés d’histoire.

Arise

Arise relies on a sensitive approach  to notions of loneliness and elevation. A poetic performance of  sobriety to better reveal what is most alive in each of us. This  deployment actually addresses the notion of the sacred and seeks to  propose an approach that oscillates between religiosity and pagan  dimension.

Ben Aïm, Christian & François

For more than twenty years, Christian and François BEN AÏM have been building a work rich of poetry and high standards, fraternal bond and singularity.

At the end of a multidisciplinary training combining dance, physical theater and circus, each one follows his path as a performer, then the two brothers meet to create À l’abri du regard des hommes, avant d’aller mourir ailleurs, a hybrid dance-theater piece which marks the beginning of their collaboration in 1997. Twenty pieces will follow which anchor their fieldwork as much as they travel internationally. They draw their inspiration from literary, musical and pictorial sources, and intimately mixing artistic disciplines on the stage : En plein coeur (2006), Valse (2010), The Ogresse on archives and her dog (2011), Lightness of Storms (2014), Burn, rebellious hearts (2017), Mirages — boreal souls (2018), Arise (2019), JESTS (2021).

Marked by an uncompromising energy, summoning the performer to an intimate relationship with movement, the dance of the BEN AÏM brothers offers, beyond a speech, an experience, a "crossing" that the dancer performs in front of our eyes, that he lives each time with the sincerity of a full and entire presence.

With this demanding writing comes an art of composition which gives birth to the stage an imagination borrowing from dreams, from the marvelous of the tale and from invisible realities. Through a subtle effect of empathy, the audience enters an unstable world, where everything is the object of poetic questioning - a world to be experienced together.

Faccini, Piers

Piers Faccini is an artist more than appreciated on the English pop scene. This young singer with a crystalline voice was born in the United Kingdom and lives in France for many years during his youth. It was nevertheless in London, during his studies at Eton College, that he began to practice music, composing rhythms for the poems he wrote between classes.

In 1997, the singer launched on stage in London. He plays as soon as he can, in many rooms of the English capital, then in France. In 2001, he was spotted by the Blue Label, installed in the city of Amiens. He can work on his first albums, including Leaving Trace in 2004, then Tering Sky in 2006. This second album will really make the reputation of Piers Faccini, and quite quickly enters the top 100 French sales.

In 2009, Piers Faccini released a new album: Two Grains of Sand, in which he perpetuates his very melancholic and poetic pop music. He worked there with Vincent Segal, Jules Bikoko and Ibrahim Maalouf.
