A New York Times dance pick!

Olivier Dubois, one of the twenty-five best dancers in the world according to Dance Europe magazine, presents the US premiere of his work My Body at FIAF.

Dubois has won acclaim for his radically innovative work with Cirque du Soleil, as well as with choreographers such as Karine Saporta, Angelin Preljocaj, Jan Fabre, and Sasha Waltz.

Presented in an intimate and participatory setting, My Body, is a culmination of Dubois’ extraordinary career. Throughout the evening, the audience selects the dance excerpts Dubois will perform—along with the music and costume—spontaneously resetting these works within new contexts. Each unique performance reveals the beauty of Dubois’s inimitable body through exquisite movement and playful striptease.

Dubois invites us to join him on this playful personalized tour of contemporary dance to better discover the artist and find in the performer’s body the makings of a masterpiece.
