France | 1999 | 23 minutes | directed by César Vayssié
Non-Verbal | 2019 digital restoration from 35mm negative film

In 1999, through the eye of César Vayssié’s camera, Les Disparates became not a
“video-dance”, a dance film or a musical comedy, but rather a short film, empirical and
intuitive. Cinema allows the integration of dance into reality, the use of its various forms
of expression as the peculiar codes of an ordinary story.
Based on Les Disparates, a performance by Dimitri Chamblas and Boris Charmatz.

César Vayssié produces films and performances. His work
sidesteps any classification, between fiction and abstraction. In
1997 at Villa Medici in Rome he produced a full-length movie, Elvis
de Médicis. In 1999, he produced Les Disparates and has since then
regularly worked with Boris Charmatz (Bocal, Levée film). His film
UFE(UNFILMÉVÈNEMENT) received the Georges De Beauregard
National Award and the Audience Award at FID 27th International
Film Festival Marseille 2016. The work of César Vayssié has
been shown at MOMI and MoMA New York, Tate Modern London,
Nanterre-Amandiers, Centre Pompidou Paris and many places
dedicated to visual art and cinema. His last film DON’T WORK has
just received the FIPRESCI PRIZE, the International Association of
Film Critics, at Viennale 18.
