Lyon Biennale de la Danse

Posted on September 24, 2012

Attended the Institut Francais Focus Danse in Lyon during the Biennale festival. Saw a half dozen shows and attended several presentations by artists about their work as well as numerous presenter and producer events, including a very dynamic speed dating session. The programming in the Biennale was not altogether to my taste- more large scale and dancey than I enjoy- but the overall mood of the city during the dance festival, with programming everywhere and images of dance on every street corner was fantastic. I particularly enjoyed having some Australian colleagues in town as this enabled me to talk more broadly and open conversations about reciprocity. Stand out work, Maguy Marin’s Nocturnes.
