Biography

Vincent Dupont est artiste associé à ICI—CCN

Vincent Dupont is a trained actor. His first encounter with dance was with choreographers Thierry Thieû Niang and Georges Appaix. He then participated in the work of Boris Charmatz: Herses, une lente introduction and Con forts fleuve. Other projects emerged for Vincent in the film industry, notably with Claire Denis.

In 2001, he wrote his first choreography: Jachères improvisations, inspired by a photograph of an installation by visual artist Stan Douglas which questions reality through notions of convergence and distance, both visual and audible. Since then, while continuing to work with other artists (Hubert Colas, Olivia Grandville), Vincent Dupont’s own work is at the crossroads of several fields. He seeks to displace the expected definitions of choreographic art. His creations are presented as experiences, questions addressed to the viewer's perception.

With [dikrömatik], Vincent Dupont focused on materials that bypass spectators’ sensory balance. He renewed his partnership with Yves Godin and Thierry Balasse in order to create a performance on vertigo, as an immediate disturbance of perception.

In October 2005, at Les Laboratoires d'Aubervilliers, he created Hauts Cris (miniature), where the body is seen as a catalyst of space and sound, revealing an inner state around the shout. Incantus, created in November 2007 for the CNDC of Angers, developed incantatory material, calling on dancers to assert their presence and free their movements; a collective call to the stage in order to define the stakes of the choreographic act and allow choreography to find its full strength, its fulcrum. The SACD awarded Vincent Dupont the Prize for "new choreographic talent" for 2007.

In spring 2009, in order to change the way bodies are perceived, and to move away from a purely theatrical setting, he made a choreographic film, Plongée. In this project, he used natural or invented space to film bodies differently via choreography of image. Souffles, created in June 2010 at the Phénix – Scène nationale de Valenciennes as part of the Latitudes Contemporaines Festival, explored an image of death in motion through a sort of theatrical catharsis.

With Bine, an installation performance in spring 2011, Vincent Dupont confronted movement with Charles Pennequin’s poetic universe. L’étang suspendu, created in August 2012 for the festival "Entre cour et jardins" developed a certain vision which places the spectator in an organic relationship with nature. In November 2013, he created Air at the Théâtre de Nîmes. Inspired by a Jean Rouch film, Air seeks a trancelike state through the ebb and flow with the audience; the objective is that a unique movement will be born of this collective energy.

Stereoscopia, his last piece, was created in November 2014 at Rillieux-la-Pape National Choreography Centre. Working because of stereoscopy, Vincent Dupont, puts two almost identical choreographies side by side in order to show a new concept of movement.

At the same time, Vincent Dupont and his team, participated regularly in different workshops and training courses: the Great workshops at the CCN, Tours (2009), training classes at the CNDC of Angers (2009 and 2010), Extensions training at the CDC of Toulouse (2012), Master classes at the CDC-Atelier in Paris (2014 and 2015), PREAC and master exerce at the CCN, Montpellier (2016). Vincent also runs regular workshops in schools, gives conferences for the general public and promotes other areas of artistic action, while performing with his company.
