This new screening from the series on video art emphasises the notion of changes choreographed with different point of views.
In the first video, “Véronique Doisneau’’, Jerôme Bel (dancer and choreographer, forerunner of the non-dance movement) is portraying a ballet dancer from the Opera de Paris, who is to retire soon. Bel gives the dancer a platform to confess about her work, about not being a star but only a “background” dancer, working and suffering from this harsh discipline. An intimate portrait and a premiere within the enclosure of the institution, the Opera de Paris.
In the second video “O seculo” by the Brazilian artist Cinthia Marcelle ( winner of the prestigious Future Generation Art Prize), there are no words, and no storyboard, the empty street ‘s changes are orchestrated through a series of colourful and original actions and movements.
