DANSER LA PEINTURE
New dance book by Laurent Pellier – Photos and Philippe Verrièle – text
By Henning Høholt
PARIS/FRANCE: The two brilliant artists Laurent Pellier, famouse dance photographer and the famous ballet/dance critic Philippe Verrièle has made a Dance History of Art.
In fact the idea of this project started 5 years ago, where these two artists started discussing their idea of a special book about dance, art, photography.
They asked Eleven outstanding and leading dance choreographers representing the most restless of today’s scenes, to participate by making each their choreography.
The beautiful and very well illustrated book, full of dance photos. Is keept in Eleven Chapter thus: for each the work of a visual artist has been offering a choreographer.
Each dance session is photographed by a dozen Images, it is accompanied of a text on the artist read in view of its link to the choreographic art and either a meeting with the choreographer about this artist and more generally, its relationship to the visual arts.
Eleven major artists, Fontana to Klein, Pollock to Degotttex and this is where the young choreographers are indispensable when you would rather take gloves to rub some figures, they tackle them head-on-body or hand-to-body.
Dance and plastic arts relationship is revisited in this original and stripped where, once will not hurt, it’s choreographers to give their views on the artists and take them as subject when it is rather the use that it is the opposite, at least a certainty, it will move. . . .

We present here five of eleven images, photographed from the exhibition that accompanied the book presentation. Unfortunately our fotos provided here dont represent the photographer’s magnificent work, which is also reproduced in the book the righteous great reproduction, which the photographer deserves. This is intended only as a modest tasting of what the readers will see in the large size book.
