Les Indes Galantes

Clémont Cogitore
France, 2017, 6 minutes, dance
Les Indes Galantes (The Amorous Indies), is an opera-ballet created by Jean Philippe Rameau in 1735. One of the dances was inspired by tribal Indian dances of Louisiana performed by Metchigaema chiefs in Paris in 1723. Clément Cogitore adapts a short part of the ballet by mobilizing a group of Krump dancers, an art form that emerged in South Central Los Angeles in the wake of the riots following the acquittal of police officers who brutally beat Rodney King. Amidst this coercive atmosphere, young dancers started to embody the violent tensions of the physical, social and political body. Both the tribal dance performed in Paris in 1723, and the rebellious Krump dancers of the 1990s shape a reenactment of Rameau's original libretto, staging young people dancing on the verge of a volcano.
