Real Talk with JOELLE BOUVIER

Real Talk with JOELLE BOUVIER - master contemporary choreographer and soloist dancer from Switzerland living in Paris France.

When someone is being interviewed, they always put their best face forward. "Real Talk" is designed to help young dancers and professionals by providing them with the whole truth about the problems faced by artists...on stage and off.

Did you always want to do what you are doing now?

Yes. Always from as small as I can remember it was my first desire to be a dancer. Moving. I love moving. The most pleasure I had is through movement.

I like dancers who...

who dance for something. Not dancing only for the steps. Dancing with something important. Thinking about dancing, not only aerobic.

I am afraid of...

Many Things. Death. Sickness. Situations where it is impossible for me to move or to see. I love to move, but I can have the same pleasure of movement when I see the body of another dancing. When I am watching dance, for me it's like I dance with the body of a 20-year-old... but if something happens that I can’t see...then that would be a great tragedy. That is my greatest fear.

A dance piece should...

Should be important and speak about human beings. For me personally, it is not interesting to see something only abstract. I need to see something about man or woman. I want to have questions and sometimes answers during the performance. I love to move by a dance piece.
