For the past five years, French choreographer Jerome Bel has explored dance traditions through the ages—he's tackled classical ballet, German expressionism, and traditional Thai Khon (Pichet Klunchun and Myself, a highlight of 2008's TBA Festival). Now Bel tackles American modern dance with a new work, Cédric Andrieux, performed by the 33-year-old Andrieux himself, whom Bel chanced upon while traveling through the south of France. One of contemporary dance’s most lauded artists, Andrieux hails from Brest, France, but danced in New York City for more than eight years with the legendary Merce Cunningham Dance Company. With this show, Andrieux presents a visual autobiography, talking about his childhood, his ambitions, his doubts, and his pains. He intersperses stories with dance excerpts, including those choreographed by Bel, Merce Cunningham protége Trisha Brown, and Cunningham himself. FS
