C. Bengolea & F. Chaignaud: DUB LOVE

20/01/2014 — "(...) With Reunion Island composer and DJ High Elements, they invent in Dub Love a balanced, physically tough, on-pointe dance, with an amazing pace and with costumes close to the skin and tattoos worn as jewels. The trio is relentless, the postures far from reggae hitting and bouncing movements. A real treat." M-C V. Libération 27/11/2013

Cutting-edge Rastafarian Dub
MARIE-CHRISTINE VERNAY 27 NOVEMBER 2013 

The choreographers Cecilia Bengolea and François Chaignaud have adopted the very good habit of digging in the past for free dances ranging from the 20s-30s to voguing. This always implies rethinking structures and the involvement of dance in the social and political context. Here, in the impetus of les Inaccoutumés, the unreserved festival of la Ménagerie de Verre, they focus on sound systems related to the Rastafarian movement in colonised Jamaica of the 50s. With Reunion Island composer and DJ High Elements, they invent in Dub Love a balanced, physically tough, on-pointe dance, with an amazing pace and with costumes close to the skin and tattoos worn as jewels. The trio is relentless, the postures far from reggae hitting and bouncing movements.
A real treat. M.-C.V.
