As part of the Centre Pompidou’s 40th anniversary celebrations, in partnership with the 2017 DañsFabrik festival, laid on by the Quartz, scène nationale de Brest, the exhibition L’œil la bouche et le reste is the source code and reference base for the next piece by choreographer Volmir Cordeiro to be created at Passerelle on 28th February 2017.
Expression – the thematic target and driving force of the exhibition – intensifies and even completes the singular changeover of a sensation into the embodiment of a danced gesture.
Conceived as a kind of millefeuille, the exhibition will show works attempting to formulate a complex, open and unfinished expressive function within the choreographic field. Choices are made through free association and the power of stimulation, via the desire to disturb the eye before a huge mass of gestures. The exhibition will show and give rise to games of inspiration, reinterpretation, phantom-materials, an era, from one artist to another, from the early 20th century to the present day.
The exhibition is based on a selection of works presented during the Centre Pompidou’s Vidéodanse series. It also includes a performative section entitled Une nuit des visages, on 4 March 2017, during which several choreographers, including Aude Lachaise, Ana Rita Teodoro, Marcela Santander Corvalán, Mark Tompkins and Claudia Triozzi, will propose excerpts from pieces presented through films exhibited or forms created for the occasion.
