Always looking out for new aesthetics and new languages, what Pierre Pontvianne, Lukas Timulak and Yuval Pick have in common is to place their experience as performers at the service of their respective universes and their appetite for research. As for their approaches, they are radically different: while the first is attached to words, the other two exploit respectively the sources of image and emotion.

At the frontiers of dance
“The frictions between words and dance”, that is what interests Pierre Pontvianne who is here pursuing the exploration which he began with his piece MASS about the relations between dance and text. This choreographer from Saint-Étienne thus develops a language made up of collisions and reversals, whose poetic display conveys an authentically political dimension.
On his return to the Opéra de Lyon, the very place where he used to be a dancer, Yuval Pick, now the director of the CCN of Rillieux has developed a singularly organic language. It is through the memory of bodies, the invention of forms, the experience of space, the search for the “flesh of the world”, that the choreographer succeeds in touching the essence of his art: emotion.
Little-known in France, despite his considerable experience (he danced at the NDT II, the NDT I and the Ballet of Monte-Carlo), Lukas Timulak works at the crossroads between aesthetics and kinetics, visual effects and a technical virtuosity. It is an approach in which light and video play a role which is as essential as gestural explorations.
