Chaconne

Faced with a world anxiously clinging to its traditions, we wanted to ask contemporary artists and musicians to shift our perspective with one of the 17th century’s most codified dances, the chaconne. “This dive into the baroque era naturally echoed my education in the Paris Opera Ballet corps,” explained Raphaëlle Delaunay. “The baroque period tried to say: a world where all the opposites would be harmoniously possible. It turned conflict into a principle of harmony. What dissonances could we compose with today? With irreverence, but with a desire to return all the verve and symbolic force to the body, I image a court ballet in 2015. A duet accompanied by Sébastien D’Hérin on the harpsichord and two other musicians.

Delaunay, Raphaëlle

A graduate of the Royal Academy of Dance in London, Raphaëlle Delaunay was admitted into the Ecole de Danse de l'Opéra de Paris, where she joined the ranks of the Corps de Ballet de l'Opéra de Paris. Upon the invitation of Pina Bausch, she joined the Tanztheater Wuppertal where she was involved in particular in interpretations of Café Muller, Le Sacre du Printemps and Kontakthof, as well as the choreography for four other pieces: Mazurka Fogo, O Dido, Wiesenland, Barbe-Bleue.

In 2000, she joined the Nederlands Dans Theater, directed by Jiri Kylian. In 2003, she met Alain Platel, with whom she worked on Mozart and Wolf, the projet dedicated to him. She also danced with the collective Peeping Tom (Belgium) in Le Jardin in 2002. As part of the company Traces, she produced Jeux d'intention (2006), Vestis (2006), Hot Dogs (2007), Ginger Jive and Bitter Sugar.

Raphaëlle Delaunay also performs for Alain Buffard, Richard Siegal and many others; she also worked with Jean-Christophe Saïs on "Histoire du Soldat". 

A commission from the Cité de la Musique enabled her to produce "Pétrouschka" in April 2012 with Radio France's Philharmonic orchestra. "Chez Joséphine" will be produced in December 2013 with the Caratini Jazz Ensemble and two dancers, as an extension of the work on danses noires (black dances). She created Chaconne (2015) at the invitation of Subsistances with the baroque ensemble of Les Nouveaux Caractères (the New haracters).
