Jérôme Bel: Veronique Doisneau Oct 30, 2013
Cédric Andrieux is very similar in construct to Bel's previous work, Veronique Doisneau (2004). Both shows invert the spectacle of dance, turning the focus to a the specific experience of an individual performer. Doisneau features the real-life Veronique Doisneau, a long-time member of the corps de ballet at the Paris Opéra. Doisneau dances, hums music, speaks frankly to the audience about life as a ballet dancer. The resulting performance is moving and illuminating.
