My body of coming forth by day
Olivier Dubois
  • La représentation du 26 octobre sera interprétée en français.

Olivier Dubois at your service! One of the best dancers of his generation delivers an immersive solo of his greatest hits.

In My body of coming forth by day, Dubois gets out of his comfort zone. Named amongst the 25 best dancers in the world in 2011 and boasting an experience of over 60 shows as a performer, Olivier Dubois has been a household name for years. After working with Angelin Preljocaj, Cirque du Soleil, and Sasha Waltz, he takes up a new, audacious challenge: an intimate solo directed in part by… the audience!

Welcoming the spectators with a bottle of champagne in his hand, Olivier Dubois invites them by groups of three to randomly pick a choreography and a song. This arbitrary yet humorous process prompts the master of ceremony to revisit a few of the shows he took part in, each time with a unique approach.

Without any artifice or safety net, Olivier Dubois embarks on a journey across dance fragments to seek the artist and examine the performer’s body to find what makes a masterpiece. This vibrant and unbridled tribute to all dancers is an opportunity to come back to his first thrills, to rediscover and celebrate with us his passion for the art of choreography.
