Cie Les Marches de l'Eté

A choreographic portrait of photographer Pierre Molinier.

A dancer poses for a photographer… Over the course of the shoot, the model transforms into a pictorial object evoking the fantastical world of Pierre Molinier, peopled with mannequins, dolls, grains, corsets and high heels!
This performance is an astonishing choreographic tribute to the painter and photographer Pierre Molinier, a pioneer of body art and erotic photography whose images are packed with contorted bodies: thighs at head height, stockinged legs at arresting angles…
Molinier’s fetish for female legs extended to transvestitism, and his photomontages, paintings, doll sculptures and textile creations all contributed to his somewhat sulphurous reputation.
With the help of dancer Sylvain Méret, Jean-Luc Terrade uses this unique “model” to celebrate the genius of a trail-blazing artist who paved the way for body art and hyperrealism. A far cry from the “polymorph pervert” tag which still clings to Molinier’s reputation.
