Véronique Doisneau

Jérôme Bel
2005 • France • 40’
World Premiere

Invited to make a piece for the Paris Opera Ballet, Jérôme Bel wanted to stage a sort of theatrical documentary on the work of one of the dancers: Véronique Doisneau. Alone on stage, close to retirement, she casts a retrospective and subjective glance on her career as a dancer at the heart of this institution. Through words and gestures, she conjures up an otherwise invisible world.
