Yoann Bourgeois: Celui qui tombe // la Scène nationale d'Orléans

"Yoann Bourgeois se situe à l’exact point de rencontre entre les arts de la danse et du cirque. Son dernier spectacle, Celui qui tombe, rêve de l’exact “point de suspension” cher aux circassiens: l’instant imperceptible, ouvert à tous les possibles, où un objet projeté dans les airs semble marquer un arrêt avant de retomber. Celui qui tombe se joue sur un plateau mobile, qui ne cesse de s’incliner, tanguer, tourner, aller de son ballant. Six interprètes se tiennent dessus, faisant face dans l’instant au jeu des forces qui anime ce support, dont ils ne sont pas maîtres. Philosophiquement, on sera libre d’y voir une métaphore de la condition humaine. Artistiquement, voilà une nouvelle idée du geste: le corps reçoit une force, avant que de prétendre produire une forme. L’acteur accepte de se laisser traverser par les puissances du monde, au lieu de prétendre les soumettre. Et c’est vertigineux."

"Six performers appear to defy the laws of gravity, responding with strength and grace to maintain balance on board a constantly shifting platform."

The arts and sciences are drawn more closely together by technology

"A passion for bringing together expertise in the arts, computing and technology is inspiring the University of Greenwich's new Professor of Digital Creativity.

Gregory Sporton, who joins in January [2013] from Birmingham City University, has spent much of his academic career researching the impact of new technology on the visual and performing arts. He is a former professional dancer and has also researched the history of ballet in Soviet times.

He is excited about introducing a new and original focus on the arts to Greenwich. 'I aim to gather together the expertise we have in so many disciplines, such as creative arts, computing, visualisation and all the rest, and make something new and interesting,' Professor Sporton says.

'The arts and sciences are drawn more closely together by technology: there is less differentiation than people think, and at Greenwich I want to build a research environment to explore that."
