'Mauvais Genre' by Alain Buffard Opens at Danspace
by JENNIFER DUNNING for the New York Times
Published:

Alain Buffard is a French choreographer who considers himself to be a product of American modern dance. ...

"Mauvais Genre" ("Bad Type") opens with a handsome, eerie tableau of the dancers standing, nude, behind hanging fluorescent lights, a mug-shot lineup without the faces showing. Slowly, eventually, they tape their genitals and then put on pair after pair of underpants, which figure zanily in the grand finale, before moving out onto the stylishly empty stage floor to cluster in slapping, huffing groups, depositing candlelike flashlights around them. Just as that is lasting too long, the dancers disperse to the sides, strap small pill bottles on their heels and pick up prescription-medicine boxes.

Brave Bodies
Visiting choreographer shows us dancers we know in a new and loving light
by DEBORAH JOWITT for the Village Voice

Buffard's provocative and beguiling Mauvais Genre (2003) is a development of a solo, Good Boy, that he made in 1998, but it could be considered an homage to Parades and Changes. Buffard's tone is darker, despite its wit.
