Memories of a Lord

The Memories of a Lord is the latest creation by Olivier Dubois, the enfant terrible of French choreography.

Nominated among the 25 best in the world, in 2007 Olivier Dubois received the jury special prize from the Critics Union for his career as performer and his piece “Tout l’or du monde” (All the Money in the World) then the Jardin d’Europe prize for “Faune(s). In these pieces he questions what creates humanity in people.

Here, the artist focusses on the loneliness of the great of this world, calling up characters such as Caligula, Alexander the Great or Genghis Khan. All these characters are represented by the dancer Sébastien Perrault, who takes the role of soloist. Around him are forty amateurs, of various ages and body types. These anonymous figures form a mass, a swarm. They give the impression of a living-background that transforms into a forest, a tower or a battle field as the tableaux change.

Since 204, Olivier Dubois has been director of the CCN in Roubaix, Nord Pas-de-Calais.
