Enjoy the silence

The Festival Concordan(s)e is a unique adventure in which a writer meets a choreographer. The idea is that two artists, who have never met prior to the festival, observe the other and question each other on what drives their desire to create.  The result of this immersion in each other's creative world is a unique joint creation, in which the writer and the choreographer reveal what has surprised them, what they learned, on this quest to expand their own universe. The audience then becomes a witness to this experience which always illustrates the complicity that has been established and the space that each artist proposes to the other. The intention of these encounters is to discover, in the same scenic space, the choreographer's work and the writer's expression in this joint artistic act.

Enjoy the Silence

Célia Houdart is an author. Mickaël Phelippeau is a choreographer and dancer. Why did she choose to write and he to dance? He invites her to his house. She invites him to her house. They exchange a few words. They tell each other stories. They dance for each other. They listen to each other. And discover that they like to sit in silence together.

Houdart, Célia

After studying humanities and philosophy and completing some stage direction assistantships (Oskar Gomez-Mata, Arthur Nauzyciel), Célia Houdart dedicated herself to writing.

She is the author of three novels: "Carrare" (P.O.L, 2011), "Le Patron" (P.O.L, 2009), "Les Merveilles du monde" (P.O.L, 2007) and an essay: "Georges Aperghis. Avis de tempête", (Intervalles, 2007).

Collaboration between a choreographer and a writer can lead to the emergence of a large number of combinations. If sometimes the choreographer creates his dance around the work of an author, the writer can also choose dance as the subject of his text.
