As a multidisciplinary artist, César Vayssié explores the relationship between art and politics, and practices dance as a phenomenon of engagement of the body.
How can the body carry contradictions? Between the desire for dance and morality, the impulse of rhythm and reason, the unbearable and pleasure, César Vayssié imagines, forty years after the release of Michael Jackson's Billie Jean, a choreography that echoes the questions and contradictions of the contemporary world.
Dancing twice is based on a duo of Jeremy Need and Marlène Saldana, both turbulent and joyful at the same time, thereby reflecting the duality that emanates from Billie Jean. César Vayssié seeks to develop a dance out of the ordinary, which hybridizes club dance and choreographic abstraction, interiority and release.
Searching a polymorphic dance, which unfolds on a stretched version of Billie Jean’s introduction, Dancing twice expresses this desire to be other in dance, this particular state which transforms the personality through the body and pushes the being to out of oneself, from the intimate to the global.
