Mouvements #09

To mark the 30th annual Eurockéennes Festival in Belfort, VIADANSE – Centre chorégraphique national de Bourgogne Franche-Comté à Belfort (National Choreographic Centre of Burgundy and Franche-Comté in Belfort – CCN Belfort) invited 18 choreographers, representing the wide diversity in the field of choreography. The film director Nicolas Habas followed them on the natural site of Malsaucy, from the beginning of the preparations for the festival, and throughout it to the end. The choreographers took part in all that happened, everywhere it happened (stages, technical storage management areas, traffic routes, crowds of audiences, backstage…) resulting in danced portrayals that documented in a recreational manner the impressive machinery needed to bring about the event.

Habas, Nicolas

Nicolas Habas comes from cinema first, as a screenwriter and director of several short fiction films including Le mal de Claire, broadcast on French TV and documentaries (La parole en chantier, triptych on a popular neighborhood in urban renewal). He is very interested in the tensions between reality and the imaginary, society and intimacy, geography and territories. With a self-taught apprenticeship that led him to a deep understanding of the codes of the film industry, he decided to find «his» cinema and returned with Le Corps de la Ville, the web series anchored in dance, to his first loves, since he made his first dance video in 1998. Shot during the 30° Eurockéennes de Belfort Festival and Broadcast on Arte Concert, Mouvements is its second web series.

Ballet de l'Opéra National du Rhin

Founded in 1972, the Ballet du Rhin, which has since become the Ballet  of the Opéra national du Rhin, has journeyed far. From Strasbourg to  Mulhouse firstly where it settled in its premises in 1974. In Alsace,  France and then the world, it has travelled as an acknowledged  ambassador for dance, ever growing through the talent of its successive  "bosses": Jean Babilée, Denis Carey, Peter Van Dyk, Jean Sarelli,  Jean-Paul Gravier, Bertrand d'At, Ivan Cavallari and now Bruno Bouché.  Through their personal influence and artistic choices, they have all  contributed to turning this company into a dance troupe whose expertise  and quality is unanimously acclaimed. The Ballet of the Opéra national du Rhin is one of the rare French  companies to move seamlessly from baroque to modern and from classical  to contemporary styles, so that every mode of dance can be appreciated  to the full. The long list of choreographers from Bournonville to Heinz  Spoerli, not forgetting Balanchine, Kylián, Béjart, Forsythe and Lucinda  Childs, merely serves to illustrate this illustrious journey. Its  repertoire also includes classic ballets such as La Sylphide and Giselle  and re-interpretations of iconic masterpieces such as Don Quichotte,  Romeo and Juliet, The Nutcracker Suite and Coppelia, which act as  landmarks for the great 20th-century choreographers, and creations  solicited of both young choreographers and seasoned artists. The company consists of a troupe of 33 permanent dancers from the world  over, who, in addition to their solid academic training, must be able to  take on board and explore in depth a broad variety of styles.
