Na grani

Le Mer, Mickaël

Born in 1977, Mickaël Le Mer discovered hip hop in the 90s, during the '2nd wave'. He first trained as part of the collective adventure of the S'Poart Company in 1996. It was in this collective context that Mickaël Le Mer made his first attempts as a choreographer, and, with "In Vivo" (2007), he launched and took on a demanding form of creation that draws on the personal experience of dancers. The result bears the hallmark of a sensitivity that is both poetic and urban, while at the same time developing a great mastery of the stage space and every component of the show (lighting, set design, music, etc.).

His work was most notably rewarded in 2009 with the second jury prize in the Re-Connaissance contemporary dance contest, which is a competition organised jointly by the Maison de la Danse in Lyon and the Centre de Développement Chorégraphique (CDC) in Grenoble. Following this success, Mickaël Le Mer, the company's artistic director and choreographer, was invited by the Institut Français (previously Cultures France) to create a piece as part of the 2010 France-Russia cultural exchange year. This commission resulted in the creation of the Franco-Russian piece "Na Grani", a piece of choreography for ten male and female Russian and French dancers from hip hop and contemporary dance backgrounds. "Na Grani" was played for the first time at the Lyon Biennale de la Danse in 2010.

In 2012, he created "Instable", "Rock it daddy" in 2013, "Rouge" in 2014 and the trio "Traces" in 2015. Mickaël is also working on his next creation "Crossover" which will be released in autumn 2017.

Riolon, Luc

After studies of mathematics preparatory class and medecine studies, Luc Riolon begins to make films within the framework of his Faculty of Medicine, then met the famous choreographers of the 80s (Maguy Marin, Mark Tompkins, Josef Nadj, Daniel Larrieu Daniel, Odile Duboc, Josette Baiz, Angelin Prljocaj, etc.) with whom he shoots numerous films (re-creation for the camera, the illegal securements). In the 80s with the American choreographer Mark Tompkins he introduces the video on the stage, broadcasting live on big screens the images which he shoots with his camera by being on the stage with the dancers, mixing live images and pre-recorded images. With Daniel Larrieu he participates in the creation of the famous show WATERPROOF, the contemporary choreography which takes place in a swimming pool, by filming live) the dancers dancing in the water and mixing the live images with pre-recorded underwater images. This choreography has been shown in many countries (USA, Canada, Spain, England…)
Then he collaborates during 10 years with the famous french TV producer Eve Ruggieri for her programs" Musics in the heart ". He shoots with her of numerous documentaries about classical music, opera singers and dance. From 1999 he directs documentaries of scientific popularization, by following researchers attached to the resolution of a particular ecologic enigma. These two artistic and scientific domains which can seem separated are nevertheless, for Luc Riolon, connected by the same approach : the deep desire to understand the world, by the art or by the scientific research, and to restore it to the largest number. Among his recent scientific documentaries, we can quote for example " The Enigma of the Black Caiman ", Living and dying in the swamp " or " The Nile delta: The end of the miracle ". “Chernobyl, a natural history ? “ These documentaries of scientific popularization recently have been awarded in international festivals.

[1930-1960]: Neoclassicism in Europe and the United States, entirely in tune with the times

Parcours

The Ballets Russes paved the way for what would become known as: neo-classical. Back then, the term “modern ballet” was frequently used to define this renewal of aesthetics: a savvy blend of tradition and innovation, which each choreographer defined in their own way.
