April 29 / April 29 2013 - Représentation à 20h - Grande Halle de la Villette
The International Theatre Institute ITI is pleased to announce that the celebration of International Dance Day 2013 will take place Monday April 29th, 2013 at Grande Halle de la Villette in Paris, starting at 8 pm. The Taiwanese choregrapher Lin Hwai-min, author of this year's message, and his company Cloud Gate Dance Theatre of Taïwan are the guests of the 2013 edition of International Dance Day. They will perform extracts from their works at the occasion.
In 1982 the Dance Committee of the ITI founded International Dance Day to be celebrated every year on 29 April, anniversary of Jean-Georges Noverre (1727-1810), the creator of modern ballet. The intention of the International Dance Day Message is to celebrate Dance, to revel in the universality of this art form, to cross all political, cultural and ethnic barriers and bring people together with a common language – Dance.
Every year, a prominent choregrapher and/or dancer is selected to write a message about Dance and its importance in our societies. Translated in more than twenty languages, the message is circulated through the ITI network (more than 90 national Centres and cooperating members) and performing arts organizations, starting from April.
Time magazine talks of Lin Hwai-min as one of "Asia's heroes". Founder of the companies Cloud Gate Dance Theatre of Taïwan and Cloud Gate 2, the choregrapher's work has been internationaly acclaimed.

January 16 / April 28 2013 - Fondation Henri Cartier-Bresson
Henri Cartier-Bresson Foundation, opened since May 2003, moved into a studio in Montparnasse. It shows to the public through exhibitions, the "treasures" of the fund and the work of other photographers, painters, sculptors and cartoonists, an eclecticism which gives it a great originality.
Until April 28, it showcases photo prints from the collection of the gallery owner, Howard Greenberg, one of the leading figures of the New York photography scene. Himself a former photographer, Howard Greenberg created The Center for Photography in Woodstock in 1977, and his own gallery in New York in 1981. He's interested in photojournalism and "street" photography, becoming one of the major stakeholders in the photography market. "I discovered the history of photography in the 1970s and I realized that many great photographers were then completely unknown." He says.
Part of the 500 photo prints of the Howard Greenberg collection is exhibited. From the Modernist Czech School (Drtikol, Rössler, Funke), to the photographers of the FSA (Lange, Evans), through the Humanists (Hine, Seymour) or the American masters (Callahan, Frank, Winogrand), it is a personal history of photography that is told.
The building consists of three levels that communicates through a spiral staircase; the interior design gives to the staging, unity and accessibility. So this is the mere contemplation of images that makes us move. The discovery of large meaning, emotional and historical photographs from a prestigious collection in a pleasant place is a real pleasure. I can only advise you to enjoy the last days to see the show!

April 18 / April 18 2013 - Représentations à 19h et 20h - Galerie Sator
As part of Yu Hiraï's solo show, "Borders" at the Galerie Sator, Yu Hiraï and Soazig Oligo invite you to a theatrical installation, Thursday, April 18 at 7 pm and 8 pm.
A piece of Jon Fosse
Staging Soazig Oligo
"I chose to represent a short story by the Norwegian playwright, Jon Fosse. Kant means edge, limit, in Nynorsk. What interests me is to integrate text and images, to interrogate the gallery space as a space of representation, to understand the work of Yu Hiraï through the eyes of Jon Fosse.
Yu Hiraï and Jon Fosse wander the wire between the two, drawing in their own way a representation space that welcomes figures of childhood, housed in the intimate memory. Something is played, something questioned the status of real imagination. Staging Kant, is to offer the viewer, the beauty of the man who abandons himself to the memory of the child he was and is not, or is still .. . "
