Les nouvelles pratiques du corps scénique : pour une approche élargie des rapports danse, arts plastiques, performance

Abstract : Since the last few decades, we are witnessing the emergence of artistic practices that lead us to rethink more than ever the cloistered categories we’re used to fit them into: visual arts, dance, performance. These practices testify the override of the idea of multidisciplinarity (which has been a long-term focus) to invest new physical and mental modalities and spaces.The artistic genre porousness often attests common issues like the question of the « I », the representation and the staging of the self ; a specific code investigation ; the exploration of a gestural corpus.Stating a kind of deterritorialization of practices cannot however prevent from an historical enlightening, mainly to be found in the Judson Dance Theater and its broader context, the New-York avant-garde scene of the sixties. This unprecedented field of experimentation shaped new strategies for the body in motion whose reach is still seminal today.Though relationships to ordinary gestures are no more what artists are striving for, some experimental processes are still operating, regarding either the interactions of the body to objects or to particular devices. This open realm of relationships, crossing the work of artists like Jerôme Bel, Alain Buffard, Ulla von Brandenburg, Boris Charmatz, Helène Delprat, Esther Ferrer, Nicolas Floc’h and so many others, is what we sought to map under the term of “the new practices of the scenic body”.
