“[Andrieux] embodies a page from the history of dance in flesh and bone, a sort of living memory”
Le Monde

French choreographer and performance-maker Jérôme Bel returns to Crossing the Line with a work created for Cédric Andrieux, one of contemporary dance’s most lauded artists. Providing a behind-the-scenes look at Andrieux’s career, from his training in France to his time with the Merce Cunningham Dance Company and the Lyon Opera Ballet, the performance integrates spoken English with dance excerpts created by renowned choreographers like Merce Cunningham and Trisha Brown. This work beautifully opens the world of dance and performance, offering insights into the iconic image of the performer.

Running Time: 1 hour without an intermission
