Loosely based on the hit show Le Bal, and transposed to Argentina, El Baile brings together Mathilde Monnier and Alan Pauls for the same choreographic purpose, and a desire to “tell whatever history makes bodies do.”

 

First there was a unifying show, Le Bal, conceived by Jean-Claude Penchenat with the Théâtre du Campagnol company in 1981, which chronicled a people’s history of France since the Libération. Today, this Ball is channeled into El Baile, in Buenos Aires from 1978 to the present day. More specifically, El Baile becomes a new project enriched with the dancers’ personal stories in order to “explore the Argentinian myths, the remains of the lost generations and the danced revolutions”. A country made of tango, soccer, rock and protest. “To draw from what history can still offer”, says Mathilde Monnier who reunites with the stage, along with companion and writer Alan Pauls. They conceived a wordless show conducted  by a dozen Argentinian performers, a ball that involves “capturing the energy or lack of energy of each time period.” A collective aesthetic filled with music and dance to talk about the passage of time.
