With media intervention and emerging artists’ competition, artists are often insecured of who they are. Time makes a dancer’s fame seems too short and and fragile. Thierry Bae combines dance, image and theatre to portray the life of a forgotten dancer through a performance. On his journey, the dancer encounters some of the ‘greats’ of French contemporary dance, asks for their advice and assistance, and in the process moves seamlessly between the realms of fiction and reality. Humorous, revealing and ultimately satisfying, Journal d’Inquietude tells it like it is in the tough world of the independent choreographer.
