“Bel’s work is genuine . . . exciting, smart and great, great fun.” —Dance Europe
Notorious for his hotly debated conceptual dance work that took Europe by storm in the 1990s and is influencing dancemakers around the world today, this is Parisian provocateur Jérôme Bel’s first United States tour. Using a visually captivating and physically impressive company of 18, Bel plays off a wide range of pop songs – spun live by an onstage DJ – to outwit audience expectations with radicalism and humor. “Minimalist in his propositions, maximalist in his radicality spiced with humor, with which he eludes the expectations of performing art” (Theatre de la Ville). See where dance/performance art is taking us in the 21st century. Presented in association with Alliance Française de Minneapolis/St. Paul. This work contains nudity.
