STEVEN MICHEL ET THÉO MERCIER REÇOIVENT LE LION D'ARGENT DE LA BIENNALE DE VENISE 2019

21/01/2019 — Félicitations Steven Michel et Théo Mercier ! Ces deux artistes français ont reçu le prix du Lion d’argent 2019. Leur pièce Affordable Solution for Better Living inaugurera la 13ième édition de la Biennale. Nous nous réjouissons du 21 juin 2019, le jour où la pièce sera présentée et où Steven et Théo pourront prendre ce merveilleux prix à la maison.

La Biennale di Venezia announced the 2019 Lions for Dance: the Golden Lion for Lifetime Achievement has been awarded to Alessandro Sciarroni, the Silver Lion has been awarded to Steven Michel and Théo Mercier.

As the motivation states "Steven Michel and Théo Mercier are two committed young artists whose career we should pay great attention to. They come from a generation of creators who love to collaborate with others and move from project to project. Both create choreographic mise-en-scènes in which they explore the material of our culture, our space and our time. The bodies become objects and the objects move towards embodied, material, violent thought. These "plastic choreographer-artists" offer us strange parties, where the truth of falsity and the falsity of truth trigger thoughtful landscapes, devoid of nature, a new, crude, enchantment”.

On the 21st of June Steven and Théo will present their Affordable Solution for Better Living during the opening day of he 13th International Festival of Contemporary Dance (21 - 30 June). The Awards Ceremony will take place at Ca’ Giustinian, the headquarters of the Biennale.
