The Spectator's Moment

The Spectator's Moment or how to discover an artist, a piece of work or a company in just two minutes. It is a collection of programmes produced by the Maison de la Danse in Lyon and presented by Dominique Hervieu. Each episode is devoted to an artist or a company that is programmed at the Maison de la Danse and offers the public keys or artistic benchmarks for better understanding and appreciating the choreographic art.

Ahn, Eun-Me

Korean globetrotter; avant-garde figure and choreographer of the highly official football World Cup opening ceremony in Deagu in 2002; perfomer at the greatest international festivals: Eun-Me Ahn cultivates beauty of contrast, combines dots, strips and flowers, oscillates from the most acid colour to the most solemn austerity, plays on androgeny's subtlest nuances and experiments with slowness to truly shatter the rhythms of trance. 

Eun-Me Ahn is a performer who is prepared to risk everything and commit artistic piracy. Thus we have seen her throw herself off a crane, attack a piano with scissors and an axe, rip up her own fairy-dress made out of white ties and handing out the tatters to the audience, all while performing the Bear's Dance that is straight out of a fairytale. However, it would be wrong to think of this simply as provocation. This is more about the affimation of a curiosity and freedom engendered by work and style, pushed to their most unexpected limits. 

Eun-Me Ahn began her traditional Korean dance training at the age of twelve. In 1989 she finished her studies at the E-Wha University for Women in Seoul, where she received a degree in both Art and Visual Arts. After graduating, she joined the prestigious Tisch School of the Arts in New York in 1994. 

From 1986 to 1992, Eun-Me Ahn was a member of the Korean Modern Dance Company and the Korean Contemporary Dance Company in Seoul. From 1986 to 1993 she developed her choreography work in Korea. During her time in New York, she continued her work as a choreographer: for five seasons from 1995 to 1999, she achieved great success with several long pieces, which received both public and critical acclaim. Eun-Me Ahn is particularly well recognised for her powerful, moving images. She is also considered the Korean representative for Japanese Butoh dance.

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.
