Véronique Doisneau (2004) – A film by Jérôme Bel
Véronique Doisneau (2004), a film by artist and choreographer Jérôme Bel, explores the formal aspects of the stage, the physical presence of a dancer and the relationship with theatrical space can hold an audience captive. In 2004, the Paris Opera commissioned Bel to make this documentary about the real-life ballerina Véronique Doisneau. Close to retirement age, she stands alone on stage, ruminatively considering her career. Doisneau dances, hums music, and speaks frankly to an audience about life as a ballet dancer. The resulting performance is both moving and illuminating.
Véronique Doisneau was produced by Telemondis and the Paris Opéra, and co-realised by Pierre Dupouey and Jérôme Bel.
