Cie. Mathilde Monnier / CCN de Montpellier (FR)pavlova 3'23'' This year at ImPulsTanz the great French choreographer Mathilde Monnier presents an encounter with a ballet piece that marked the transition from classical to modern ballet. Michel Fokine’s short solo “The Dying Swan”, first performed in 1907 in Anna Pavlova’s interpretation, is definitely one of the most famous ballet pieces of all time. Back then, it was a major provocation. Because for the first time, a ballerina was allowed to improvise live on stage, and the whole dance lasted only a little over three minutes. Accordingly, “Pavlova 3’23”” is the title of Monnier’s reflection on this classic, in which nine dancers interpret the dying swan in their very special, contemporary manner. "pavlova 3'23'' is evidence of a talent of such caliber concerning the intelligence of the composition [...] that one experiences the creation in a state of jubilation." Gérard Mayen, Mouvement Duration: 65 minutes Also at ImPulsTanz 2010: “Soapéra”, Mathilde Monnier's latest creation - a collaboration with four dancers and painter Dominique Figarella. Cie.
