About Boris Charmatz/Musee de la danse: Manger

Since 2009 Boris Charmatz has been the director of the Centre choregraphique national de Rennes et de Bretagne, which he proposes to transform into a new kind of museum of dance. He is also the Associate Artist of the 2011 Festival d'Avignon and was invited at MoMA (NY) in 2013 and at Tate Modern in 2012. 
Charmatz made his daring and provocative Sadler's Wells debut in 2014 with the UK premiere of enfant, an intergenerational ensemble piece exploring the borders between the young and the old. 
For this new work, manger, Charmatz inverstigates how to set bodies in motion not with the eyes or with the limbs but wih the mouth. The mouth acts  as the crossroads where food, voices, breath and words meet; a space where the self and the other engage and ingest each other. Charmatz uses this metaphor as the vehicle for his choreography , dance and performance. Standing at the boundaries between a mobile installation and a performance piece, Manger offers its audience what Charmatz terms a "swallowed reality": a slow digestion of the world.
