Night:Light

Night:Light is a  creation for the projection space of IRCAM, a performance installation  that crosses several scores: the musical score of Raphaël Cendo, the  choreographic score of Alban Richard and the luminous score of Valérie  Sigward.


Three mediums that work in porosity to carve  the time and space of this place, and immerse the spectators in a bath  of sensations.
The interpreter activates a protocol of  actions to be carried out, he is always in search around the notion of  movements-pivots and must constantly continue to advance in a  labyrinthine writing. The process, once initiated, finds resolutions only in an incessant activity.

Richard, Alban

Alban Richard discovered contemporary dance alongside his music and literature studies. As a performer, he went on to work for Odile Duboc, Christine Gaigg, Olga de Soto and Rosalind Crisp among others.

In 2000, he founded Ensemble L’Abrupt and built up a repertoire of some thirty pieces. His writing is process-based, structured by several partitions – for dance, music, light and costumes.

Ensemble L’Abrupt has done residencies at numerous theatres: Théâtre de Vanves, Centre National de la Danse de Pantin, Forum du Blanc-Mesnil, Théâtre Louis Aragon in Tremblay-en-France, Scène nationale d’Orléans, Le Prisme centre for artistic development in Saint-Quentin-en-Yvelines, Théâtre National de Chaillot, Théâtre Paul Eluard (TPE) in Bezons and Théâtre 71, Scène nationale de Malakoff.

Alban Richard has developed numerous collaborations with artists from the music world, including the Alla francesca ensemble, Les Talens Lyriques, Les Percussions de Strasbourg, the Instant Donné and Alternance ensembles, IRCAM, and the composers Laurent Perrier, Raphael Cendo, Jérôme Combier, Robin Leduc, Erwan Keravec and Arnaud Rebotini.

He is also a commissioned artist. In recent years, his installation-performances have been displayed at the Museum of Modern Art of the City of Paris, the Louvre, the Quai Branly Museum, the Guimet Museum and the Abu Dhabi Art Fair.

In September 2015, Alban Richard was appointed as artistic director of the Centre chorégraphique national de Caen en Normandie.
