Vincent Dunoyer (BE/FR)


12. april 2018

Kunsthøgskolen i Oslo 12.04.2018 19:00

Why does one want to become a dancer? And how does one relate, thirty years later, to this desire?  DVD DVD is a performance as a personal narrative, a collection of fragments of memories intertwining the intimate and the professional, a live document that navigates between language, music and video. In DVD DVD, a dancer (Dancer Vincent Dunoyer) explores his past as if he was somebody else, a double, a character in a fiction that is his own reality.

+ The performance is followed by a conversation with Mette Edvardsen.
+ Seminar April 13.
+ Arranged in collaboration with Oslo National Academy of the Arts

Seminar with Vincent Dunoyer på KHIO (Loftet 2) Friday April 13., 10.45 – 12.45. The seminar is open for everyone.
Meet 10.30 in the reception resepsjonen at KHIO.
Vincent Dunoyer will share some of his references and introduce fictional characters, avatars and doubles that make up his artistic family. In continuation of the presentation of his performance DVD DVD, he will address questions of fiction and reality in the field of performance, and how memory and imagination interact in the creation of personal narratives.

Vincent Dunoyer began his dance career with Wim Vandekeybus, and danced with Rosas for six years. Since 1998, he has been working as a freelance dancer, actor and choreographer. He has presented various performances at the Kaaitheater, including Sister (2007), a duet with Anne Teresa De Keersmaeker; and Encore (2009), a reconstruction of his repertoire as a dancer. Since 2010, he has also been flirting with visual art, creating pieces like Pairforming (together with the painter Lucas Devriendt, 2011) and O.L.V. van Vaak/Notre Dame du Sommeil (with Berlinde De Bruyckere, 2013).
