Danses Libres re-enacts the repertory of Utopic brief dances by François Malkovsky Paris 1940-1980. A disciple of Isadora Duncan, François Malkovsky followed her current to create a dance that responds to the industrial revolution and the de-harmonization of man and nature. Malkovsky’s short choreographies figurate the elements of the nature dancing to sonatas of Schubert, Chopin, Rachmaninov, Debussy. This dance was performed by Cecilia Bengolea, François Chaignaud, Suzanne Bodak, Alex Mugler in Kasino in Vienna in 2012. Bengolea made a video collage with videos of deep-sea life that inspire Malcovsky’s repertory.
