TENWORKS (for Jean-Paul)

EMANUEL GAT DANCE & BALLET DE LYON (2017)

TENWORKS (for Jean-Paul) is a program celebrating dancers. Their uniqueness, virtuosity, engagement, fearlessness, sense of responsibility and humanity. A group of 20 dancers, ten from le Ballet de Lyon and ten from Emanuel Gat Dance, share the stage in a série of ten short works in various constallations, formats, musical environments and choreographic directions. The notion of a new redistribution of artistic responsibilities and resources, is at the heart of all ten new works and the program as a whole.

TENWORKS (for Jean-Paul) is in many ways a reaction to the changing times, and to the constant evolution of the manner in which dance, and art in general, is being produced. It is an attempt to explore new models of artistic production, to question old boundaries and hierarchies, and explore models of inclusiveness and support, as opposed to those of exclusiveness and competition. It questions the current status of dancers, their position in relations to the institutions they work with, their role as autonomous choreographic thinkers and makers, and proposes a new way of reorganising the dancer/choreographer/institution relationships.

Le jeu de la conversation menée par 25 danseurs brillantissimes et complètement investis multiplie les formes inattendues, conjugue les sentiments les plus divers et laisse le spectateur bouché bée. Comme s’il voyait naître et s’effacer sous ses yeux, dans un jaillissement joyeux et foisonnant, le sel de la vie même.
