Project | 5th September – 28th October 2017
The relation between the experiences of dance and music therapy in a main axis : to develop creativity and body awareness. How do we connect the mind and the body ? The unknown and the knowlegde ? The inside and the outide ? The left brain and the right brain ? I have been dancing a lot of improvisations and I was always enthusiastic to see how this practice request creativity, spontaneity, sensibility and puts dancers in front of their own limits and fears.
I would like to start a new artistic collaboration with a painter and videographer from the Mornington Peninsula, Kayla Nagy. I took part in many collectives researches (Play Practice Residency, India, 2015 ; Dance Festivals, France 2014..etc) and I collaborated with dancers, actors, videographers and musicians for different artistic projects ; I like the mixture of the arts. I also have a real interest for the dance outside the studio, the nature and the urban locations offers new possibilities of movement and request a special awareness and availability to the space and the time. After a preparation of small choreographies in the studio, I will repeat the movements in the Australian landscape, notice how interpretation changes in a different space, allow myself to improvise. And Kayla will enjoy the colours, the lights and the shapes of the outside to paint. Having a videographer by my side is also the opportunity to leave a trace of my pedagogic research and give a visibility of my work. This poetic material will be expose at the end of the residency, and we will work on a video installation.
The research « Spontaneous Body » is currently a topic I develop for the graduation of the Physical Diploma, University Sorbonne-Nouvelle Paris 3. My work is supported by Lyse Seguin, professor of the choregraphic, dance and aïkido class and director of the Physical Diploma. I will then be financed from the University (association ATEP3) for the residency and I got a personnal student grant.
After this residency I would like to have a clear and concrete pedagogic project « Spontaneous Body » that I could teach in different dance studios. Melbourne is an artistic city in emergence, I would like to be part of this growing up dance community and slowly based myself there.
