Shoes, their style and fetish, their symbolism and the allure of the label. In this work, created as a collaboration with Olivier Saillard, the artistic director of J.M. Weston, Mathilde Monnier plays with 27 iconic foot covers that accompany her like shadowy creatures in a parade. As part of the Vienna Heidi Horten Collection’s summer exhibition RENDEZ-VOUS, the great French choreographer dances as a barefoot solo performer in black tights and a white men’s shirt. Monnier in all her grandesse only needs a minimum of physical expression to make a strong impact.
