Cédric Andrieux is a solo for renowned contemporary dancer Cédric Andrieux. In this illuminating work, leading French choreographer Jérôme Bel asks veteran dancer Cédric Andrieux to reflect on his life as a dancer and confront the question of what drives him as an artist. Integrating excerpts, Bel provides an intimate look at Andrieux’s career by using snapshots of the renowned contemporary dancer’s life in dance, his training in France, his years with the Merce Cunningham Dance Company, all narrated and danced by Andrieux.

Andrieux trained in France, then came to the U.S. to dance with Cunningham. After some years, he returned to France to join the Lyon Opera Ballet. This work, created by Bel in 2009 for the Paris Opera Ballet, has since been performed throughout the world. In this solo, danced and narrated by Andrieux, the French-born dancer traces the arc of his development in and out of the studio and on and off the stage. His story begins with his early training as a contemporary dancer, then moves on to his time at a prestigious conservatory in Paris and continues through his professional life as a performer. His droll narrative is punctuated with danced illustrations that include excerpts from milestone dance works, by Cunningham and Trisha Brown, as well as a humorous look at Cunningham’s rigorous daily class. Clever, humorous and touching, Cédric Andrieux offers incredible insight into the world of a performer who has lived the history of contemporary dance.
