I’m familiar with Cecilia Bengolea and François Chaignaud’s work from their 2009 piece ‘Sylphides’ [see below] where they danced inside black body-bags scored by The Spice Girl’s tear-inducing track ‘Viva Forever’.
I know! Made of genius!
Filmmaker Clara Cullen who has worked under Werner Herzog and Spike Lee, has created this short film of fragments of Bengolea and Chaignaud’s works plus some new material from their La Ménagerie residency in Paris.
FYI, they also have a piece entitled ‘Altered Natives’ Say Yes to Another Excess-Twerk’. This -I’m thinking- is a great weekend mantra!
