Collection « Instantanés »

The “Instantanés” (Instantaneous) collection, designed to accompany the cultural programme of the Centre Pompidou-Metz and its highlights, groups monographs by artists from the performing arts. Choreographers and stage directors join forces to create a landscape rarely found in the world of art, that of emerging contemporary creation. The collection thus attempts to fix artistic forms, by their very essence fleeting and in continual transformation, fleeing all attempts at permanence. Each of the titles in the collection comprises a portrait, sketched from life, of artists from the new generation, and relates in images the highlights of their career.

Matériaux divers” (Miscellaneous materials) is at one and the same time a show, a company and a festival, created and directed by one of the most remarkable choreographers on the European stage, the Portuguese Tiago Guedes. This artistic creation is the perfect reflection of his work in which dance, performance, music and visual arts come together in a unique composition.
