Cecilia Bengolea and Francois Chaignaud description

The award-winning team Cecilia Bengolea and François Chaignaud have collaborated together since 2005, creating works for Lyon Opera Ballet, Tanztheater Wuppertal Pina Bausch and themselves.

For their new production, Bengolea travelled to Jamaica to immerse herself in Kingston’s defiant dance scene, while Chaignaud pursued the study of traditional medieval vocal polyphony repertory, especially Guillaume de Machaut, stretching back hundreds of years. 

Bringing their research together, the choreographers invited three ballerinas and dancehall specialists to join them in the exploration of song and dance where pointe shoes and trainers share the dance floor on equal footing.
