Danse 2000 ~ One Minute of Dance a Day


Danse 2000 ~ One Minute of Dance a Day

Dancing July 5th, starting 11h11 – all together via internet with ZOOM for the 2000th daily dance with the french performance artist Nadia Vadori-Gauthier ( @uneminutededanseparjour #oneminuteofdanceaday ) as part of Nadia’s project ‘One Minute of Dance a Day’ .
Following the Charlie Hebdo attack on January 7, 2015 Nadia Vadori-Gauthier established her project ‘Une minute de danse par jour’ and has been dancing daily ever since january 14, 2015 for a minute or a little more. A daily act of poetic resistance, involving dance and video.
For her 2000th dance she organised this extraordinary event ‘2000 danses pour la danse 2000’ together with Chaillot – Théâtre national de la Danse.

Nadia’s Motto 

…as Nietzsche once said…

« A day without dancing is a day wasted »

Or, more exactly :
“And lost be the day to us in which a measure hath not been danced. And false be every truth which hath not had laughter along with it!” From: Friedrich Wilhelm Nietzsche in “Thus Spake Zarathustra”.

Nadia’s 2000st dance film

Nadia’s 2000st dance film was publised today July 6 ( 20200706 ) at instagram : @oneminuteofdanceaday | facebook : Une minute de danse par jour @uneminutededanseparjour | and Nadia’s web site : uneminutededanseparjour.com .

We loved it – thank you Nadia , and congrats with your 2000th day of daily dancing.
