La Belle au bois dormant

Béatrice Massin has undertaken a new interpretation of Perrault’s fairy tale, Sleeping Beauty. With La Belle au bois dormant (Sleeping Beauty), the company Fêtes galantes proposes this Beauty a journey in time where she falls asleep with Lully and wakes up with Mozart... Through the abstraction of dance, the tale reaches into what is most intimate in each child-spectator to allow them to make their way through their own tale. It is an ideal opportunity to reveal the wondrous as well as the timeless palette of baroque dance.

Massin, Béatrice

After dancing for several contemporary companies, including that of Susan Buirge, Béatrice Massin was engaged by Ris et Danceries in 1983, where for the next ten years she mixed performing with repertoire research, assistantship and choreography. She choreographed “Water Music” by Handel at the Metz Arsenal (1990), “Bastien et Bastienne” (1991), Mozart's “Les Petits Riens” (1991) for the Tourcoing opera workshop and also devised the choreography for “Medée”, set to music by Marc-Antoine Charpentier (1983).

In late 1993, Béatrice Massin founded her own company, Fêtes Galantes, for whom she devises one show each year. These are reconstructions of pieces from the baroque repertoire, but, above all, creations using the choreographic vocabulary of the seventeenth century: "Charpentier des ténèbres”, “Carte du tender, “Pipinone”, “Trio triptyque” and most recently, “Que ma joie demeure”. From December 1999 to July 2000, Béatrice Massin devised and directed the choreography for Gérard Corbiau's film “Le roi danse”. In September 2001, Béatrice Massin was invited by the Ballet de Lorraine to devise three baroque choreographies, which include "Noir, du côté de Callot” inspired by Callot's etchings.

Alongside her research and choreographic work, she presents educational programmes at Opéra Bastille, the Cité de la Musique and CND (National Dance Centre) in the form of danced lecture-recitals, courses and workshops. She offers the opportunity to discover baroque court dance as well as reconstructions of pieces from the baroque repertoire.

Plasson, Fabien

Born in 1977, Fabien Plasson is a video director specialized in the field of performing arts (dance , music, etc).

During his studies at the Ecole Nationale des Beaux-Arts de Lyon (joined in 1995) Fabien discovered video art. He was trained by various video artists (Joel Bartoloméo Pascal Nottoli , Eric Duyckaerts , etc) .
He first experimented with the creation of installations and cinematic objects.

From 2001 to 2011, he was in charge of Ginger & Fred video Bar’s programming at La Maison de la Danse in Lyon. He discovered the choreographic field and the importance of this medium in the dissemination, mediation and pedagogical approach to dance alongside Charles Picq, who was a brilliant video director and the director of the video department at that time.

Today, Fabien Plasson is the video director at La Maison de la Danse and in charge of the video section of Numeridanse.tv, an online international  video library, and continues his creative activities, making videos of concerts, performances and also creating video sets for live performances.

Compagnie Fêtes galantes

Artistic direction:Béatrice Massin

Creation: 1993


Founded in 1993 by Béatrice Massin, Fêtes Galantes elaborates on the many aspects of baroque dance.

The confrontation between baroque style and contemporary dance gives birth to a specific writing.

By steering clear of any attempt at reconstitution, the company chose to bring forward, in our time, a kind of baroque that would interest the contemporary.

Founded in 2003, L’Atelier baroque was born out of Fêtes Galantes’ constant preoccupation with education. A tool for research and transmitting knowledge, its main goal is to organize education programmes as well as train dance professionals. It acts mainly as a bridge between past and future.
