Event description
A dance performance choreographed and performed by Yves Musard with music by Don Nino.

About this Event

Conceived as an outdoor/indoor one hour and thirty minutes project which is to be performed between the Frank H. Ogawa plaza and Pro Arts Gallery & COMMONS, the performance will start at 7 PM inside the gallery. It will follow a spatial trajectory within the architectural space and exhibition at Pro Arts Gallery & COMMONS.

Musard will then engage with the Plaza. Don Nino will be playing the special set of guitar drone which was developed for the performance in the gallery as Musard gravitates away in a double ellipse to unveil the Plaza’s heights and perspectives and explore the democratic nature of the public space through freedom of movement.

A recent film: “SEGMENT DE TRAVERSE” 2019, directed and produced by Christine Dabague(duration: 30 minutes) will run continuously in the gallery. The film, features Yves Musard, was shot at the Collection Lambert Museum in Avignon, France. The dancer was in residence at the museum for 6 months in 2016 while two installations were up: Andre Serrano Ainsi soit-il and A Summer at the Collection Lambert: REVEZ - AU COEUR - AMOS GITAI. The film traces the dancer’s path through the exhibitions where Musard acts as a liaison between the museum space and the works of art.

About Yves Musard

Defining himself as a “movement artist” Yves’ movement performance develops the notion of an itinerary on the spot in a sort of imbricated time and space. He learns to isolate a movement and engage its spatial visit from within. Following a line of least resistance where the movement is self pro-pulsed into the air.

Yves Musard collaborates with numerous artists and institutions, among them most recently the Collection Lambert in Avignon, The gallery Campagne-Premiere in Berlin and now the Rio Bravo Fine Arts in T or C, New Mexico.

Yves lives in Truth and Consequences, New Mexico and Marseille, France.

About Don Nino

Don Nino is a musician and composer, based in Pantin, France. He plays electric guitar in an experimental approach, using effects that remind the fluctuations of vocals. For Yves Musard, he has developed a special set of guitar drone that evaluates in various parts.
