Dance is a dirty job but somebody's got to do it  creation

« PUBLIC’S AWARD » DANSE ÉLARGIE [BROADENING DANCE] 2010


GENESIS
Dance is a dirty job but sombody’s got to do it (first version) was conceived and produced especially for the 2010 “danse élargies” [“broadening dance”]  competition where it won the public’s award. A first step which allowed Scali Delpeyrat and his team to find partners (such as the Théâtre de la Ville and the Espace des Arts de Chalon) so as to finalize the project, taking the initial ten minutes created for the competition as a starting point.



FUNNY POETIC MANIFESTO
When the Theatre pays tribute to dance, when language and bodies together fly away, in a burst of laughter.


Scali Delpeyrat’s danced theatre winks at theatrical dance, carried to great heights by Pina Bausch, through this quartet who pays tribute to two internationally renowned figures of American dance: Fred Astaire and Michael Jackson. Standing in line on the stage, a musician, Clément Landais, who plays the electric bass and the guitar, a lecturer, Scali Delpeyrat and his assistant, Elizabeth Mazev, an occasional singer, evoke a few enigmas peculiar to dance: those who do not dance, those who do not dance anymore, and the absent body as a common denominator to Fred Astaire and Michael Jackson, both exceptional dancers. A funny poetic manifesto, illustrated by the dancer dressed in in yellow, Mathieu Calmelet, who bounces, swirls and leaps up on stage with alacrity, to decipher the change in  bodily or mechanical moves announced by Michael Jackson’s dancing. A prophetic idol…
