Sylvain Huc - DivergencesSujets

Play video

Sujets is a sculptural and hypnotic exploration of human bodies and their interactions. On stage, five naked performers are thrown in the middle of a collective experience oscillating between brutality and softness. Sujets invites you to witness a landscape of flesh and desire and to question your own senses.

After completing university studies in history and art history, Sylvain Huc discovered contemporary dance and changed his pathway to pursue this new passion. He joined the training program of the CDC of Toulouse in 2003.

He continued to explore the medium incessantly through numerous workshops, (Ultima Vez, Mark Tompkins, Lloyd Newson, Gisèle Vienne, David Zambrano, Damien Jalet, Meg Stuart and many others). After dancing with some dance companies (Richard Nadal, La Zampa, Coraline Lamaison, Laura Scozzi…) he began creating his own performances with Divergences Company.

He teaches regularly for scholars and gives workshops for professionals and non-professionals. His work is primarily defined by a strict physical approach that is very grounded in the body rather than in dance. His first performance, Little Red Riding Hood, a piece for young audiences, played 250 times in France and Europe. Rotkäppchen, an adult version of the same murderous tale, examined the connection between eroticism, cruelty and flesh. After that, Kapput, a piece for four performers focused on failure. In 2016 Boys Don’t Cry, a male trio exploring masculine identity, performed at the Hivernales during Festival d’Avignon. If the body is fundamental in his work, Sylvain Huc likes to put it in a delicate or brutal environment.

Sylvain Huc is supported within the CDC network, Choreographic Development Centres,
especially those in Toulouse, Strasbourg, Roubaix and Avignon, but also by European network DNA (Departures and Arrivals).
