Dimitri Chamblas et Boris Charmatz, À bras-le-corps 1993 - Photo © Pierre Fabris 1995
Boris Charmatz first choreographed and performed this work with Dimitri Chamblas in 1993. They will be performing in May at Tate Modern. Rows of seats create a closed space, delimitating the movements of the two dancers and abolishing the distance between the audience and them.

John Singer Sargent (1856-1925) was one of the greatest portrait painters of his generation. Acclaimed on both sides of the Atlantic, he was closely connected to many of the other leading artists, writers, actors and musicians of the time. His portraits of these friends and contemporaries, including Auguste Rodin, Claude Monet and Robert Louis Stevenson, were rarely commissioned and allowed him to create more intimate and experimental works than was possible in his formal portraiture.
This major exhibition of over seventy portraits, presented at the National Portrait Gallery in London spans Sargent’s time in London, Paris, Boston and New York as well as his travels in the Italian and English countryside. Important loans from galleries and private collections in Europe and America make this an unmissable opportunity to discover the artist’s most daring, personal and distinctive portraits.
