Performances. Saturday July 10 and Sunday July 11 at 10:30 a.m. at the Collection Lambert (45 minutes)
ARTE invites choreographers and dancers Leïla Ka, Manon Bouquet and Elodie Guézou to create performances at the heart of the artworks exhibited in the spaces of the Collection Lambert.
“ARTE en scene” [ARTE on stage] is a collection of 25 short films designed to highlight the performing arts in all their richness and diversity. Each episode constitutes an original proposal, born from the meeting between an artist (or a company) and a director. A window on contemporary creation alongside dancers, choreographers, jugglers, tightrope walkers, acrobats, deprived of the stage for several months.
To reconnect the artists with the public, ARTE wanted to invite three of these performers to create performances for the Festival d’Avignon. Young choreographers and dancers Leïla Ka, Manon Bouquet and Élodie Guézou will thus offer unique proposals at the heart of the artworks exhibited in the spaces of the Collection Lambert.
With: Manon Bouquet, Élodie Guézou, Leïla Ka
Coproduction: ARTE France and La Blogothèque in partnership with Adami
A collection of films to see on arteconcert.com

Manon Bouquet is as comfortable with classical dance as with contemporary dance. Active since 2012, her career has led her alongside big names in French song, in their music video as well as on tour. This jack-of-all-trades has also allowed the artist to appear in musicals, operas and major TV shows. Always in search of new artistic experiences, Manon Bouquet recently joined the new troupes “Collectif les Autres” by Marion Motin and “La Marche Bleue” by Léo Walk.
Élodie Guézou is a complete artist who combines the talents of contortionist, dancer, actress, singer, and model. Surprisingly, it was quite late (at the age of 23) that the artist added the Circassian string to an already well-supplied bow. Since 2018, she has artistically directed the projects of the AMA Company, identifying itself as a “hybrid and polymorphic circus”. Over the years, she has refined a writing of the real close to documentary fiction. Élodie Guézou is thus a real jack-of-all-trades coupled with a lover of the stage, multiplying daring projects and collaborations.
Leïla Ka begins her journey with urban dances which she quickly intersects with other influences. Interpreter of Maguy Marin in the famous piece May B, she draws from this experience a danced theatricality that she integrates into her choreographic research. Her writing, which declines the themes of the difficulty of being oneself, destiny and identities, was discovered by the public in 2018 in a first solo: Pode Ser, awarded five times internationally and performed more than 70 times since its creation. With a second duet piece, C’est toi qu’on adore [It is you that we adore] and a solo in progress, Leïla Ka is now an associate artist at the Théâtre de l’Étoile in the North of Paris, at the CENTQUATRE-PARIS and is accompanied by the Tremplin network – support for emerging choreographers – until 2024.
