A photographic account of the career of Françoise & Dominique Dupuy, French dancers and choreographers, pioneers of modern dance in France.
Even in images, this is far from a life story.
There are dates, that's true, but not in order.
A journey, true, but in fragments, the works coming together in a blinding overview of time.
A dislocation, giving rise to a kind of dance of images. Only the dancers, and their profound silence, shot in the moment as if caught in the act, or at moments of pause, like a studied portrait.
Words come, not to take the lead, but to follow; not an explanation but rather a record.
Perhaps they have nothing to impose, and it's better this way.
Images and words which appear to say, simply:
“You were dancing – I'm so glad. Now, let's dance.”
