Workshop Répertoire Alain Buffard

Matthieu Doze

03 & 04.03.18


Good boy, the solo which established the work of Alain Buffard, was created in 1998 and has continued to in uence choreographic work either directly or beneath the surface. Good for... (2001) and Mauvais Genre (2003) are direct emanations of this solo which question the ow of the work as well of that of the person interpreting it. In 2017, Matthieu Doze reprised the role created by Alain Buffard. During this workshop, the participants will take charge of this minimalist choreographic, visual and sound material to establish body narratives of an autobiographical nature.

Matthieu Doze is primarily a performer of contemporary dance. Since 1989, he has worked in particular with Dominique Bagouet, Daniel Larrieu, Alain Buffard, Christian Rizzo, Emmanuelle Huynh, Claudia Triozzi, and Fanny de Chaillé, and he has also worked with lm producers and directors, musicians, photographers and visual artists including Pierre Huyghe, Ulla von Brandenburg, Aernout Mik, Jocelyn Cottencin and Pauline Curnier-Jardin. His work seeks to project the body, its movements and its gestures, into unique spaces, always with a concern for the here and now, for poetry and politics, through performances, installations, lms or musical scores. In 2017, on the occasion of the event devoted to Alain Buffard at the CN D, he reprised the role of choreographer in his original solo Good boy.
