Mickaël Phelippeau (FR)

10th - 20th

At the crossroads of visual arts and choreography, Mickaël Phelippeau focuses his approach on meeting people with different backgrounds, thereby creating an opportunity to produce interwoven portraits. Last February, far° invited the artist to lead a workshop for migrants who had recently arrived in Nyon. ’What can dance do for people who live in a state of constant uncertainty? He asked. I suggested we share dance styles in order to introduce ourselves. I sort of dreaded their reaction, but it all ended in a firework display of proud singing, grabbing, laughing and one-to-one dancing. Amidst these men, Jutyar Ali impressed me with his joie de vivre, his energy and his way of inviting other participants to dance by taking them by the shoulder. A project was born that very day.’ As a reflection of the young man’s complicated journey from Iraqi Kurdistan to Switzerland, Mickaël Phelippeau decided to create a dance portrait with him.
