Ugo Rondinone at the Grand Théâtre de Genève
Since the arrival of Sidi Larbi Cherkaoui at the head of the Geneva Ballet, the dialogue between choreographers and contemporary artists has intensified: after Antony Gormley (Noetic, Sutra) and Jim Hodges (Skid), it will be the turn of Swiss artist Ugo Rondinone to take part in this exercise.
With the world premiere of VÏA, in April 2023, Rondinine renews a partnership with the choreographer Fouad Boussouf who puts life into his installations, as in “burn shine fly” at the Venice Biennale this summer, which will be reprised at the Petit Palais in Paris until the beginning of January. Fouad Boussouf is the new director of Le Phare, the national choreographic center of Le Havre. Boussouf founded his Compagnie Massala in 2010 with which he draws his artistic vocabulary from hip-hop culture, contemporary dance, the Nouveau Cirque, but also the folk dances and music of his native Morocco and the Arab world.
Recognized as one of the leading voices of his generation, Ugo Rondinone is an artist who composes searing meditations on nature and the human condition while establishing an organic formal vocabulary that fuses a variety of sculptural and pictorial traditions, between modernism and archaic expression. His hybrid forms exude pathos and humour, getting to the heart of the most pressing issues of our time.
