Renowned contemporary dancer Cédric Andrieux trained in France then spent years with the Merce Cunningham Dance Company before returning to France to join the Lyon Opera Ballet. He will perform identical concerts on April 25 and 26 at the Colony Theatre. Cédric Andrieux is a solo set on Andrieux by leading French choreographer Jérôme Bel. This work, created in 2009 for the Paris Opera Ballet, has since been performed throughout the world. In this solo, danced and narrated by Andrieux, the French-born dancer traces the arc of his development in and out of the studio and on and off the stage. His story begins with his early training as a contemporary dancer, then moves on to his time at a prestigious conservatory in Paris and continues through his professional life as a performer with the company and Lyon Opera Ballet. His droll narrative is punctuated with danced illustrations that include excerpts from milestone dance works, by Cunningham and Trisha Brown, as well as a humorous look at Cunningham’s rigorous daily class. Clever, humorous and touching, Cédric Andrieux offers incredible insight into the world of a performer who has lived the history of contemporary dance.
