Parts

Nadia Beugré

 

Surrounded by car wrecks, foolish symbols of the western motorized

power, Nadia Beugré  assembles scrap metal and spare parts to build a

fragile and ephemeral installation. Or maybe just to try for the last time to

heal and repair.

ABOUT THE ARTISTS

Nadia Beugré

Ivorian Beugré co-founded Béatrice Kombé’s groundbreaking, all-female dance ensemble, TchéTché. In 2009, she was accepted at Mathilde

Monnier’s programme for choreographers at the Centre Chorégraphique National de Montpellier. Beugré developed an idiosyncratic oeuvre including works such as her 2012 piece Quartiers Libres, Legacy (2015) and Tapis Rouge (2017). 

The New York Times wrote in praise of her work: ‘It’s harrowing, both in action and sound; Ms. Beugré knows how to make a crowd trust her just as, in a split second, she knows how to knock the air out of people…’
