Music: François Caffenne

Original duration: 1h30

The group

After years of working together on shared projects, the members of Arna founded their collective in 2017. Today Arna brings together dancers from highly diverse backgrounds and professions. Over time, the group has bonded, forging relationships that help to nourish the rich movement practice of each member. Every month, the dancers meet to cultivate their choreographic and improvisational skills through research experimentation and cultural events. Their performances include a video project on improvisation in public space, and an original piece Après (2021), written in autumn, with the support of Sylvère Lamotte. For their first entry to the Amateur Dance and Repertoire programme, the dancers are delighted to work with Olivier Dubois’ majestic and powerful piece Tragédie.  

The project

Created in 2012, Oliver Dubois’ Tragédie is a major work of contemporary dance. Set to the hypnotic, percussive music of Dubois’ collaborator François Caffenne, this piece for 9 dancers, will be adapted for the 15 members of the group, who have all seen the piece performed on various occasions. Wonderfully excessive, Tragédie is a kind of contemporary rave, rock trance and tribal gathering, combined into one dazzling visual explosion. It is also a moment of pure exhalation in movement: marching, jumping, bounding, running… with images siding through the dark and the fascination of flesh. The piece's attraction lies in the way Dubois showcases questions of gender, diversity, identity and freedom. While the extract chosen does not contain nudity, the questions it raises still inform the dancers’ approach to Tragédie extended

Dubois, Olivier

Born in 1972, Olivier Dubois created his first solo “Under Cover” in 1999. In 2005, he performed the duet “Féroces” with Christine Corday for the Théâtre de l'Esplanade, St Etienne. The SACD (Society of Dramatic Authors and Composers) and the Avignon Festival invited him to compose a piece in 2006 in the context of “Vif du Sujet”, “Pour tout l'or du monde”.

In 2006 and 2007 he composed the first two parts of the Bdanse project: “En Sourdine” and “Peter Pan”. He has taught and led numerous workshops for companies and schools abroad. In June 2007 he was awarded the special jury prize by the Syndicat Professionnel de la Critique (Professional Critic's Union for theatre, music and dance), for his achievements as a performer and for “Pour tout l'or du monde”. He presented his new creation “Faune(s)” in 2008 at the Avignon Festival. At the ImpulsTanz Festival in 2008 in Vienna (Austria), he was awarded the Jardin d'Europe prize. In January 2009 he choreographed Offenbach's “La Périchole”, directed by Bérangère Jannelle at the Lille Opera.

He also held an exhibition in 2009, “L'interprète dévisagé”, at the Centre National de la Danse and in November 2009 he premièred “Révolution”, a piece for 14 female dancers set to variations on Ravel's Boléro. The Ballet Monte-Carlo commissioned a piece from him based on “Le Spectre de la Rose” for April 2010. He has performed for many choreographers and directors (Sasha Waltz, Nasser Martin-Gousset, Dominique Boivin, Jan Fabre, Emilio Calcagno, Charles Cré-Ange, Angelin Preljocaj, Karine Saporta, Elio Gervasi, Andy Degroat, Laura Simi...).
