Ioannis Mandafounis seizes La Tornade, a monumental installation made out of paper, to propose two pieces: one interpreted by the young Ballet of the CNSMD of Lyon, the other, an original experimental duo.

Abstract

Every season, internationally renowned choreographers and young creators are invited to work with the ballet of the Lyon CNSMD conservatoire, whose young dancers are thus exposed to a diverse array of choreographic currents and worlds. The 2021 programme spans classical, contemporary and original works – both repertory and new pieces – so that audiences can discover various sensibilities in the four choreographers’ offerings.

La Tornade will thus host Dancing In Your Head, a new work by Ioannis Mandafounis. A dancer and choreographer who emerged from The Forsythe Company, Mandafounis is a playful free spirit who is equally at home with ballet dancers and with performers from less codified backgrounds. The unusual spatial situations he devises enable spectators to discover dance from surprising perspectives. In this two-part evening bill, Ioannis Mandafounis will also stage his new piece One One One in the tornado.
