For three nights, Marie-Agnès Gillot & Dimitri Chamblas will take over Salò, transforming it into a dance studio, and opening its doors to all of Paris’ dance genres.
 
Their hope is that these evenings will be the opportunity to bring together dance styles that have never crossed paths before and, yet, all live in the same city.
 
Echoing, and acting like the canvas for the dancing body, the music will also be at the heart of the program, from classical piano to DJ sets, from percussions to Fame, from the bar to clubbing, all echoing the many facets of “dance.”
 
“We’ll be taking over Salò for three back-to-back nights, from 10pm to six in the morning. These are, actually, the hours when a dancer is not supposed to be working, and are hours that we aren’t really familiar with. It will also be interesting to choose the music through which the bodies will be put into play.” Dimitri Chamblas
 
“The context that we’re proposing has never been seen before. Through this project, we also want to hold a mirror up to our own time where, since some time, dance has been inclined towards praise. Just until recently, dancers were considered “has-beens,” and suddenly, we find ourselves in the “front row.” So now is the time to benefit and to get people dancing.” Marie-Agnès Gillot
