Die Grüne Tisch (La Table verte, solo de la mort)

Hors d’Allemagne, cette pièce légendaire qu’est La Table verte n’est que très rarement reprise sur les scènes internationales. Thomas Caley, interprète de la Merce Cunningham Dance Company dans les années 1990, relève le défi d’en livrer une interprétation, à partir de la transmission confiée à Karin Hermes et qui prend appui sur le cinétogramme établi par Kurt Jooss lui-même dans le système de notation de Laban.

Jooss, Kurt

(1901-1979)

A natural leader and independent thinker, Jooss (1901–1979) helped develop what is now known as German Tanztheater, an expressive dance style that combined movement, text and drama. For Jooss, movement and words were inextricably linked; their connection was key to making performances as powerful an experience as life itself. Unlike expressionist choreographers of his time whose dances spoke to emotional themes, he sought to reveal the fallibility of the human condition. He created dances about urban alienation, social injustice and post-war trauma.

Born near Stuttgart, Germany, Jooss grew up studying piano, voice and drama but was drawn to dance from an early age. In 1919, he met Rudolf Laban, who was creating mass movement choirs danced by both professionals and amateurs, including Jooss. Although he had little dance training, he became Laban's student and choreographic assistant. That same year, Jooss presented his first evening of dance, "Two Male Dancers", with fellow student Sigurd Leeder, who became his longtime collaborator. Soon after, Jooss started his own company and created stage works for trained dancers. In 1927, he began his tenure as the first head of the dance department of the Folkwang School in Essen, Germany, which he co-founded that year. After WWII ended, Jooss returned to Germany and resumed his position as dance director of the Folkwang School, and he remained there until 1968.

Hermes, Karin

Chorégraphe et danseuse, Karin Hermes est aussi spécialiste de la notation et de l'analyse du mouvement. Avec sa compagnie hermesdance, elle travaille à une approche chorégraphique des problématiques humaines essentielles.

Dans son processus de création, elle expérimente la déconstruction, le collage, la citation et divers matériaux chorégraphiques. Ses pièces tirent leur origine d’un dialogue avec les chorégraphies retranscrites du XXe siècle. Karin Hermes a été formée à la Ballettakademie de Zurich et à la School of American Ballet de New York. Elle a également étudié la pédagogie de la danse à la Musikhochschule à Cologne. Elle s’est spécialisée dans l’analyse du mouvement et dans la notation Laban au Conservatoire national supérieur de musique et de danse de Paris. La compagnie de Karin Hermes est installée à Berne (Suisse). En  2008, hermesdance se produit en Israël, en France, en Allemagne et en Suisse, et Karin Hermes est invitée, entre autres, au Centre national de la danse à Pantin, au Centre chorégraphique de Nantes (en collaboration avec les Carnets Bagouet) et à la Freie Universität de Berlin.
