Je suis lent

creation 2011

and   it is   there,   where I least    expect it,     that dance  appears    

Je suis lent is a performed conference that recounts my personal history with dance, which I deliver by delving into the corpus of intimate images which make up who I am. I go back along my path as a dancer, crossed by the figures who throughout the years have nourished my imagination.

My story begins in the 19th century temple of academia, which I share with the phantoms of ballet. I then sidetrack down the route traced by the mythical figures of expressionism, and later I identify with the adventurers of post-modernity. I join the advocates of new dance, and lose myself enthusiastically along more conceptual paths. Today I follow a steep and narrow road, and it is there, where I least expect it, that dance appears.
