Cecilia Bengolea & François Chaignaud
Cecilia Bengolea studied dance and philosophy at the University of Buenos Aires and François Chaignaud studied at the Conservatoire National Supérieur de Danse de Paris. Since 2005, a sustained dialogue between these two dancers has produced an intelligent and vibrant body of work. Bengolea recently premiered her new creation Insect Train, which explores the world of insects and the relation between our bodies and nature, in Spring 2018. Chaignaud recently premiered a piece for the Carte Blanche Ballet (Norway) in May 2018. The pair received the Prix de la Révélation Chorégraphique from the Syndicat de la Critique in 2009 and were awarded the Emerging Artist Award at the Biennale de Gwangju for the entirety of their activities in 2014. Their work has been presented at international festivals including Festival d’Automne, Impulstanz Festival, and Festival d’Avignon. Following TWERK in 2014, this marks their second appearance at Kyoto Experiment.
