Kim? Contemporary Art Center
Film “Veronique Doisneau”

On 4 and 5 September at 20:00 everyone was invited to attend a film of Jérôme Bel’s production “Veronique Doisneau” (2004). The dancer, closed to the retirement age, alone on stage, retrospectively and subjectively considers her own career as ballerina inside this institution.

Invited to make a piece for the ballet of the Paris Opera by her director Brigitte Lefèvre, Jérôme Bel wanted to stage a kind of theatrical documentary on the work of one of the dancers of the ballet : Véronique Doisneau.

The videoversion of the performance was shown at Kim? as a part of the International Festival of Contemporary Theatre “Homo Novus”.
