Je me souviens

    

Raimund Hoghe’s work Je me souviens  is one that he writes in every place he performs it. He turns the empty space into an ocean. Before he arrives on  its bare floor, each stage he performs on has already experienced so many performances and encounters, has been drenched in so much sweat. The walls and lights at the CN D remember. These wall shave seen so many performances
of new works and existing works, so  many moments of fear and joy, so many bodies and breaths. 

Raimund Hoghe  takes us on a journey that is bound up with his memory, with recollections of these places, of music and its silence, of endeavour and invention. He remembers and recreates for us an outline or a consecration, compassion or amazement. It is certain that the Centre national de la danse, a crucible for the new and the old in dance, will serve as inspiration for Raimund Hoghe. This piece, which evokes all performances without ever being an anthology, will thrill both his admirers and those who are discovering this artist for the first time. 

Caroline Gonce 


Je me souviens is a minimalistic event tailor-made especially by Raimund Hoghe for the space it takes place in, and tightly interconnected with the atmosphere that prevails there. It gives the audience an insight into Hoghe’s work, his artistic working process, and his pieces, which emerge here in fragments. From these fragments, a new work in its own right emerges, not a ‘best of’ presentation but moments of remembering. 

Katja Schneider 


“Without a drop of sentimentality... Hoghe’s “Skyroom Project” was a string of beautiful, bittersweet moments, but there was no mistaking its message. You have no choice: live life to the fullest and savor the small stuff.”
(Gia Kourias, The New York Times) 

Hoghe, Raimund

Raimund Hoghe was born in Wuppertal and began his career by writing portraits of outsiders and celebrities for the German weekly newspaper "Die Zeit". These were later compiled in several books. From 1980 - 90 he worked as dramaturge for Pina Bausch's Tanztheater Wuppertal which also became the subject matter for two more books. Since 1989 he has been working on his own theatre pieces for various dancers and actors. 1992 started his collaboration with the artist Luca Giacomo Schulte, who is till now his artistic collaborator. In 1994 he produced his first solo for himself, "Meinwärts", which together with the subsequent "Chambre séparée" (1997) and "Another Dream" (2000) made up a trilogy on the 20th century.
 Since 2002, Raimund Hoghe works also on group pieces : "Sarah, Vincent et moi" (2002), "Young People, Old Voices" (2002), "Tanzgescchichten" (2003), "Swan Lake,4 Acts" (2005), and the duo "Sacre - The Rite of the Sprin" (2004) with Lorenzo De Brabandere. He went back to the solo form in 2007 with "36, Avenue Georges Mandel" created in Seoul and presented during the Festival d'Avignon. Raimund Hoghe follows his cycle on classical and history of dance pieces with "Boléro Variations" in 2007 ( creation for the Centre Pompidou / Festival d'Automne in Paris) and the solo "L'Après-midi", for the dancer Emmanuel Eggermont, on Claude Debussy "Prélude à l'Après-midi d'un faune" and Gustav Mahler "Lieder" (creation in Festival Montpellier Danse 2008 /Théâtre du Hangar).

Hoghe frequently works for television on projects such as "Der Buckel", his 1997 hour-long self portrait for WDR (West German Radio and Television). His books have been translated into several languages and he has presented his performances all over Europe, as well as in Japan and Australia. He lives in Düsseldorf and has been awarded several prizes including the "Deutscher Produzentenpreis für Choreografie" in 2001, the French Prix de la Critique in 2006 for "Swan Lake, 4 Acts" (in the category "Best Foreign Piece"). Critics from the magazin ballet-tanz awarded him "Dancer of the Year" for 2008.
