Magical

Solo — 2010

Direction : Annie Dorsen and Anne Juren

When a French choreographer/performer, Anne Juren, and a New York director, Annie Dorsen, choose to “replay”, using magic, five iconic gestures from the history of ‘60s-‘70s performance, their purpose is not nostalgia or the creation of a repertoire. On the contrary, Magical is a piece that substantially tweaks the feminist discourse of these statements. Is the female body an illusion?

Les racines de la diversité en danse contemporaine

Exposition virtuelle

La danse contemporaine désigne des courants artistiques succédant à la danse moderne. Mais, il est difficile de cerner précisément cette expression, tant elle inclus différentes pratiques et esthétiques. Aujourd’hui, le mot « contemporain » intègre des danses actuelles, urbaines, théâtrales, de différentes origines géographiques ou «culturelles». Pour comprendre et illustrer la notion de diversité dans la danse contemporaine, nous utiliserons divers créations de la collection du Centre chorégraphique ou de la Compagnie James Carlès Danse &Co, qui a mis cette idée au cœur de ses préoccupations.
