THE SHOW

Choreographic tragedy or the disturbing strangeness of the ordinary, Press addresses the image of modern man in his immense banality and at the same time in his enigmatic complexity of sound. The body of this individual-product, a disturbing dandy, moves by means of the standardized linkage of his automatisms, but also through the mechanisms in the limited living space where he moves. Perhaps by his own consent, he is held captive in a virtually empty room. The mechanical modifications to the physical and mental environment influence his body, and force him to continually change place and movement. He then finds himself drawn into an absurd and alarming dead end.

THE ARTIST

Pierre Rigal, after training initially as an athlete, went on to study mathematics and economics in Barcelonaand took a master’s in cinema. Contact with choreographers such as Heddy Maalem, Bernardo Montet and Wim Vandekeybus, and with directors such as Mladen Materic, prompted him to plunge into the world of contemporary dance. In 2002 he joined choreographer Gilles Jobin’s dance company and in 2003 founded the Compagnie Dernière Minute, choreographing and producing his first work, the solo piece Érection, directed by Aurélien Bory.
