Foofwa d’Imobilité & Jonathan O’Hear (CH) «Condanced Histories»


Beginn: 20:00
Performance / English / 120min
Foofwa Imobilité traces the history of dance in the twentieth century. Danced demonstrations, videos and historical elements intersect to address in a personal, playful and empirical way, the major trends of contemporary dance. In the first part, it gives us a glimpse of what was dance before the twentieth century and discusses in turn the great figures who have allowed this art to become what it is today…In the second part, he develops an important aspect of this legacy—as appropriate and as requested—it may deal with transmission methods, the relationship between dance and politics, that which was born in the twentieth century and again found in today’s art, a particular trend.
