Думи мoï x François Chaignaud

Ancien interprète de Boris Charmatz, Emmanuelle Huynh, Alain Buffard et Gilles Jobin, il crée en 2005, avec la danseuse Cecilia Bengolea, la compagnie VLOVAJOB PRU. Ses terrains de recherche s’étendent des précurseurs de la modernité chorégraphique du début du XXème siècle (François Malkovsky, Isadora Duncan) aux avant-gardes actuelles, et des techniques et symboliques du ballet classique aux danses urbaines et non scéniques.

With Думи мої*, a solo inspired by the sacred dances of the ritual of theyyam in the Malabar, François Chaignaud offers us an ambulatory performance that oscillates and mixes recital and dance. Dressed in spectacular costume-sculpture created by the couturier Romain Brau, it leads us in a series of metamorphoses through songs inspired by the medieval repertoire but also of Filipino, Sephardic and Ukrainian cultures.

François Chaignaud thought of this show as an antidote to the rituals of Western theatre. Thus, in an enclosed place, without a bleacher, stage and in motion, an intimacy is created where the spectators will enjoy as close as the gesture danced, the excessiveness of the costumes and the polymorphic voice of the artist.

The short form of performance in a singular space is an invitation to change our habits as spectators while making us enter a walk that falls under the magazine.

*Думи моï pronounces Dumy Moyi
