Vincent Dupont (Paris) works in several media (choreography, installation and performance) whose synthesis changes the expected definitions of choreographic art. His pieces are always proposed as experiments, questions addressed directly to the spectator. Trained initially as an actor, he began dancing with the choreographers Thierry Thieu-Niang and Georges Appaix before beginning to dance with Boris Charmatz (in Herses, Une lente introduction, Con forts fleuve). In 2001, he presented his first piece, Jachères improvisations, inspired by a photo of an installation by the plastician Stan Douglas. He continued to work on his own pieces while still participating in other artists’ pieces. In 2005 he created Hauts Cris (miniature), then Incantus (2007), Souffles (2010) and Bine (2011), a performance installation in which he confronted movement with the poetic universe of Charles Pennequin. His last creation called Air has been presented in november 2013, Vincent Dupont has conceived this choreographic work for two acoustic bodies in dialogue with a quartet of singers, with the audience placed between the singers and the dancers, at the exact spot in which the dialogue would take place.
