Pierre Desproges (9 mai 1939- 18 avril 1988)

« J’ai toujours été fasciné par les détenteurs de vérité qui, débarrassés du doute, peuvent se permettre de se jeter tête baisée dans tous les combats que leur dicte la tranquille assurance de leurs certitudes aveugles »

Emmy Sauerbeck   (1894-1974), dancer, choreographer, dance teacher

Emmy Sauerbeck le professeur, qui a beaucoup inspiré ses élèves – et bien sûr la danse – était une  danseuse allemande Née en Allemagne,  qui a grandi en Angleterre. Ellea dirigé la « School for Movement » à Berne de 1922 à 1974. Né à Londres en 1894, Emmy Sauerbeck a grandi avec deux frères et sœurs. Une représentation de la danseuse Maud Allan, à laquelle elle a assisté avec sa mère, l’avait déjà inspirée dans son enfance. Mais d’abord elle a pris des cours de violon en 1914 à Zurich et la musique sera pour elle un élément fondamental autour duquel elle créera ses chorégraphies . Après seulement un an, elle commence sa formation en danse parallèle au conservatoire de Zurich avec Rudolf von Laban et suit des cours avec Suzanne Perrottet et Katja Wulff.

La formation de Rudolf von Laban a marqué son travail pédagogique: « Rudolf von Laban est le grand innovateur de la danse de notre temps, il a découvert, formulé et rendu fécond pour la danse des lois de l’harmonie et de la mélodie, de sorte que la danse soit au même niveau de développement que la musique en tant qu’art indépendant qui peuvent se confondre les uns avec les autres sans en devenir pour autant dépendant.

Ursula Aeberhard, assistante de longue date d’Emmy Sauerbeck et directrice actuelle de « School for Movement » à Berne, décrit le style de Sauerbeck comme suit: « En plus des balançoires, du suspense – de la détente, de l’impulsion, Emmy Sauerbeck a développé son propre style de danse, qui est extrêmement subtil et différencié. Ses danses étaient souvent basées sur la dynamique et les agogiques de la musique,  » L’intérêt intense de Emmy  Sauerbeck pour la musique la caractérisait, créant ainsi des danses au son de la musique moderne, des danses uniquement à la batterie, des danses absolues sans accompagnement. Elle  choisissait  sa musique très soigneusement, et se consacrait entièrement à son service. Nous étions toujours encouragés à accorder un respect inconditionnel à la musique électronique. Emmy Sauerbeck a donné à nos étudiants quelque chose que nous ne pouvions trouver nulle part ailleurs, elle-même le savait très bien. Cela nous a fourni une base sur laquelle nous pourrions, à notre guise ou pourrons, être en mesure de découvrir ou de construire quelque chose de nouveau.  »

Tilla Durieux

Born Ottilie Godeffroy, the daughter of the Austrian chemist Richard Godeffroy (1847–1895), she trained as an actress in Vienna, her native town, and gave her debut at the Moravian Theatre in Olmütz (Olomouc) in 1901/02.

The next season she got an engagement in Breslau (Wrocław). From 1903 she worked with Max Reinhardt at the Deutsches Theater in Berlin and with a group of expressionist artists around Kurt Hiller and Jakob van Hoddis.

In 1911 Durieux entered the stage of the Lessing Theater where, on November 1, 1913, she became the second actress to perform the role Eliza Doolittle in a German language production of George Bernard Shaw’s play Pygmalion, half a year before its English premiere on April 11, 1914. From 1915 she performed at the Royal Schauspielhaus Berlin.[ In 1904, Durieux married the Berlin Secession painter Eugen Spiro, and after their divorce, she remarried in 1910 the successful art dealer and editor Paul Cassirer, who committed suicide in a room next to the court room that pronounced their divorce. Soon after, Durieux married general director Ludwig Katzenellenbogen. In 1927 they were the main financiers of Erwin Piscator’s Neues Schauspielhaus project. Durieux was a public character of 1920s Berlin and associated with numerous celebrities like the famous photographer Frieda Riess.

In 1933, Durieux and her husband left Germany for Switzerland to escape Nazi rule. She continued to perform at the Vienna Theater in der Josefstadt and in Prague.

In 1937 she moved to Zagreb, Croatia (then in the Kingdom of Yugoslavia) where she became a member of the International Red Aid. Durieux unsuccessfully tried to obtain visa for the United States; in 1941 Ludwig Katzenellenbogen was arrested by Gestapo agents in Thessaloniki and deported to Sachsenhausen concentration camp, where he was killed in 1944.

Durieux returned to West Germany in 1952, appearing on stages in Berlin, Hamburg and Münster.

Sasha

Alexander ‘Sasha’ Stewart, born 1892 in Edinburgh, moved to London and launched his professional photography career in 1914. In 1920, Sasha opened his first London studio in Bloomsbury. A technical virtuoso and popular amongst the upper class, the photographer’s theatrical and society portraits were frequently seen in sophisticated journals such as The Tatler, The Sketch and Illustrated London News.

As brilliant as he was charming, Sasha was known for his inventions and studio innovations, none more so than the Sashalite. Produced by General Electric with key input from the photographer, the Sashalite debuted in 1930 and was the first commercial flashbulb available in the UK. Sasha used the powerful light generated by the bulbs to capture his trendsetting and signature dramatic shadows and frozen motion.

Benedykt Jerzy Dorys (1901-1990)

Benedykt Jerzy Dorys  est principalement connu en tant que très grand portraitiste  (photographique). Son studio, basé à Varsovie était,  déjà avant la guerre, un lieu des plus tendance pour ne pas dire « branché » de la Ville de Varsovie et  se faire photographier par Dorys n’était pas seulement de bon goût, mais révélait un signe d’appartenance à la crème de la crème de l’époque. Cependant,  Dorys n’était pas uniquement focalisé sur les élites. En effet ses photographies des pauvres de Kazimierz Dolny dans les années 1930 sont aussi connues et ont tout autant marquées l’histoire de la photographie polonaise.

Moins connues, mais tout aussi intéressantes sont ses photos de mode et ses quelques photos artistiques du corps nu. Dorys adorait les femmes et a su en sublimer toute les beauté et ce que je vous propose aujourd’hui à travers des portraits ‘( sérés ou de plein pied), et par ses photographies de modes .

Mais Dorys a bien entendu photographié bon nombres d’hommes, mais vous connaissez mon goût pour La femme , le nu  ou l’érotisme.

Vous pouvez retrouver quelques nus dans un précédent post Ici
