Highlights: Régis Truchy in Eccentric
What's the link between Charlie Chaplin, Daft Punk, Bob Fosse, Steven Spielberg, Madonna, and Michael Jackson?
The answer: Eccentric dance.
This is a style of dance with unconventional movements that emerged as an artistic genre in the United States in the late 19th and early 20th centuries, heavily influenced by African dancers.
Its main characteristic is the disarticulation of the whole body using techniques pushed to the extreme. Joel Schechter, professor emeritus at the University of San Francisco, describes Eccentric dance as “The vaudevillian impulse to dance like a madman, even if the danser’s legs are not in tune with the music or the rest of the body.”
Discover the history of this dance at La Nouvelle Èvewith Régis Truchy, someone who masters this genre completely. A frenzied show and an astonishingly mobile artist.
