Pierre Rigal | MICRO at The Joyce Theater

MICRO is an energetic experience that attempts to look at the different types of poetry found in a rock concert. It aims to not only make you hear the music, but also to make you see the music through the physicality of all the performers. Pierre Rigal gives his team of musicians, actors, and dancers certain constraints with respect to their movement in space to compose
a romantic, furious, and musically frightening play.

Originally trained as an athlete, Pierre Rigal transitioned into contemporary dance after meeting choreographers Heddy Maalem, Bernardo Montet, and Wim Vandekeybus, and director Mladen Materic. In 2003, Rigal founded Compagnie Dernière Minute and produced his first piece, the solo "érection", which toured internationally. In 2008, as an international associate of the Gate Theatre London, Rigal created his second solo "Press". Rigal has created a dozen choreographic works since the creation of his company and has toured internationally.
