Et Maintenant ?
This film will be presented during the event La Nuit de la danse on March 21, 2024 at Théâtre Outremont.

Julien Meyzindi is a sujet level dancer at the Paris National Opera. He joined at the age of 12. Now, at 42, he must leave; that’s just the way it is, it’s the rule. Straddling the line between documentary and dance fiction, Et Maintenant? offers both a look back at the 30 years spent within the Opera and Julien’s choreographic proposal as he invents his future. Selected for the Tribeca Film Festival in New York (2023).

Cécile Rogue

Trained at the Ecole des Beaux Arts in Caen, Cécile Rogue learnt photography with Jean-Marie Périer, and then with portrait and fashion photographers.

She soon joined the Paris-Berlin Fotogroup, with whom she developed her more personal work, and took part in numerous joint exhibitions across Europe.
It was with the collective that she made her first stop-motion films, presented in the form of video installations such as Little Europa in Berlin’s Neunplus gallery or les sœurs ou la méthode in the Artazart showcase in Paris. She then collaborated with the Lilith brand, creating small video universes in line with the collections’ themes (A grain of Circus et The Reverence in homage to Jacques Tati), staged in showrooms and boutiques.

From 2016, she refined her stop motion technique, making films for agencies and brands. At the same time, her work as a portrait photographer takes her to film sets, where she sharpens her eye and curiosity for this world.

At the end of 2018, she switched to live action with Le Thaumatrope (selected as video art at the Côté Court de Pantin festival in June 2020), a short film in which technique, dance and poetry come together to play a love score, then in 2020 with DOT, a playful visual exercise, a joyful tribute to wordplay and creative energy. His repertoire, in the tradition of Méliès, draws on the timeless magic of cinema, a marvellous illusionist’s instrument, where objects come to life, time rewinds and movement accelerates…
