Jasmin Vardimon Company: Yesterday trailer

Last week, I assist to Yesterday, a contemporary dance performance by the Jasmin Vardimon Company.

An original feature, this performance takes advantage of videos and animations. I love the use of new media in art but most of the time I think it looks inappropriate or overused. In Yesterday, it was just a perfect appropriation of "new technologies"!

Yesterday is mainly based on dance but it involves so much creativity and so many ideas to illustrate, to build the performance and makes the audience fully experience it. With dedicated dancers and the energy they give on stage, Yesterday is an emotional travel from laugh to pain again an again through the different scenes.

I notice a dancer during the performance that amazed me by her commitment. After some researches, I found her name: Mafalda Deville.

In 2009, I saw many exhibitions and performances but if I had to choose just one, it would be Yesterday. The creativity, the commitment, the passion, the perfect uses of the media reasserts the notion of true beauty and forms the greatest of art performances.
