Digital version in English of the book: Jérôme Bel & Boris Charmatz-Emails 2009-2010

November 24, 2016 | By Visual & Performing Arts Department

This fall 2016, both Jérôme Bel and Boris Charmatz' works were performed in the U.S. (New York, Philadelphia, and Minneapolis) with, for example,  "The Show Must Go On" by Jérôme Bel at The Joyce Theater, and "Levée des conflits" by Charmatz at Fringe Arts, Philadelphia.

To know more about their approach of dance and the arts in general, the book Jérôme Bel & Boris Charmatz - Emails 2009-2010 has been translated into English and published by Les Presses du Réel in a digital version.

Background: In 2009, the Paris Autumn Festival and Le Théâtre de la Ville celebrated the work of Merce Cunningham. On this occasion, Jérôme Bel's Cédric Andrieux and Boris Charmatz's 50 ans de danse were presented to the audience.

The two artists were also asked to engage in a conversation on Merce Cunningham. The conversation soon extended in a one-year email exchange in which Jérôme Bel and Boris Charmatz shared the conceptions and references at the heart of their respective artistic work. Conceived as a comparative study, the discussion reveals the artists' common features and differences on dance and choreography.

Published with Musée de la danse–Centre chorégraphique de Rennes et de Bretagne and R.B. Jérôme Bel.
