Montpellier Festival de danse

Overall Appreciation

Author: Jochen Krölls

Once more Montpellier and the festival were a wonderful experience to me. Contemporary dance, like almost any serious contemporary art, is a point of discussion, exchange, and last but not least creativity. This means we often disagree. We do not know what to expect because it is new. Rather than consuming what we all know, e.g. classical dance, we enter into something that can make us reflect and perceive and realise emotions and sides in or of ourselves that were less exploited before. Sometimes we are moved strongly - I believe more than classical art can achieve. This is what makes it worth attending performances that are not smooth or harmonic or beautiful but confrontative. From my echoes you can derive what I liked much, and what less. Moreover, I believe it is important that we progress further and enter into an active perception and participation of contemporary art and its contribution to self and social reflection.

The choreographic centre of Montpellier have sold about thirty-six thousand tickets for this year’s festival - congratulations. The city of Montpellier has provided a framework that makes this reflection possible, or easy. A charming old city centre, beautiful spots between old houses and trees, a number of overwhelming historical spots. An open population. Le charme du Midi.

Thank you for hosting the festival, the artists and the visitors.
