2024年,Dance Reflections by Van Cleef & Arpels在其日本舞蹈藝術節中呈獻由編舞家Mathilde Monnier和畫家Dominique Figarella創作的《Soapéra, an Installation》。

《Soapéra, an Installation》是編舞家Mathilde Monnier和畫家Dominique Figarella於2009年聯乘作品的全新演繹。這個版本見證了雙方的持續合作,展現更為靈活多變的風格,更具表現力。Mathilde Monnier和Dominique Figarella將原版表演中使用的材料——泡沫,置於表演空間的中央。此材料的體積變得極大,成為一種不斷瀰漫於空間中的移動物質,將傳統的舞台改造成一個白色盒子。它並非以懸掛於牆上的造型出現,而且在消失之前被加以處理。表演富有戲劇張力,在泡沫消失的那刻,只剩下舞台上的舞者。

關於藝術家

Portrait - Mathilde Monnier

Mathilde Monnier

Mathilde Monnier occupies an important place in the landscape of French and international contemporary dance. From one piece to the next, she defies expectations by presenting work that is constantly evolving. Her appointment as head of the Centre Choregraphique National de Montpellier/Languedoc-Roussillon in 1994 marked the beginning of a series of collaborations with leading figures from a variety of artistic fields (including Jean-Luc Nancy, Katerine, Christine Angot, La Ribot, and Heiner Goebbels). She has created more than 40 choreographic pieces, which have been presented on major international stages, including at the Festival d’Avignon and the Theatre de la Ville in Paris, as well as in New York, Vienna, Berlin, and London, and has received several prizes (Ministry of Culture prize, SACD Grand Prize). After directing the Centre National de la Danse in Paris, Mathilde Monnier resumed her creative work in 2019, and has since produced several pieces, including Please Please Please (2019), which she created in collaboration with La Ribot & Tiago Rodiguez; Records (2021); and her latest creation, Black Lights (2023). Since 2020, Mathilde Monnier and her company have been in residence at the Halle Tropisme in Montpellier.
