“souls”, the film

creation 2013

directed by Tommy Pascal

produced by Les films Jack Fébus

‘Through death, I affirm my life.

A slow and tiring crossing … The journey of our souls.
Harbingers of my being life-givers and already revealing my death.
Souls may be seen as a long dance of death, unless it is the dance of a secret organisation: of destiny of fate … of determinism ?
This death as the soul of the world’

Tropismes

New Creation – On Tour

Tropismes

A new creation by Olivier Dubois, Tropismes is the third part of the project led by the choreographer around The Divine Comedy. Driven by the momentum of an irrepressible desire for life, the piece unfolds like a ballroom for two hours with a constant intensity and produces a real electrification of space. 

My Black Chosen One & To our fauns

Mon Élue Noire - Sacre #2 2015 0livier Dubois

My Black Chosen One & To our fauns

May 23 & 24, 2019 from 8 pm • Orsay Museum

In December 2014, Sacre 2 is created with the great dancer/ choreographer, Germaine Acogny, the mythical “chosen one” of Maurice Béjart, who never danced this particular work. It was for this 70 year old queen that Olivier Dubois created this new Sacre,  drawing from the depths of her African soul to create a new, compelling vision of the work.

LE CORPS AIMANT

nuit blanche olivier dubois

Performance

Le corps aimant

March 30 • MuCEM • Marseille

In partnership with Sciences Po Aix

Interactive performance led by COD interpreters in different areas of the museum. A danced performance, a poetic invasion of the urban space by the muffled power of the entwined bodies. To look at each other, to approach, to kiss, to embrace each other, to wear oneself, to seize oneself and then to quit … DANCE.

The participants will intervene randomly in a duet in the space of Mucem, before assembling within a big slow that will be danced every hour, transforming the museum into a huge dance floor.
