Mathilde Monnier / Jean-Francois Duroure Pudique Acide / Extasis


When Monnier and Duroure arrived in New York in 1984, they felt estranged by the prevailing dance practices and choreographic milieu. Thirty years on, they perform Pudique Acide and Extasis, two of their first productions created in New York. Influenced by the works of Pina Bausch, Viola Farber and Dominique Bagouet,
the pieces testify to a key turning point in the history of dance.
