François Chaignaud and Cecilia Bengolea

The Paris-based dancers François Chaignaud and Cecilia Bengolea have been collaborating since 2005 on independent projects as well as pieces for the Opéra de Lyon, the Ballet de Lorraine, and Pina Bausch’s Tanztheater Wuppertal. Their influences range from classical ballet to polyphonic singing to club culture. The Dia Art Foundation commissioned the pair to create a program for its museum in Beacon, which occupies a former printing plant. Tailored to this industrial setting, the three-part performances, which include two other dancers, survey the pair’s 12-year partnership.
