In 2021, the Danser Sans Frontières association and the CCNR are offering to 20 amateurs the opportunity to take part in a participatory and intergenerational choreographic creation project, led by Thibault Desaules: Brasero. 

In order to build together a piece borrowing from each other’s personalities, the group meets regularly at the Velette studio. In the end, Brasero is presented on various occasions: on June 27 and July 3, 2021 in the Velette schoolyard in Rillieux-la-Pape, then on July 5, 2021 in Lyon as part of the Tout l’monde dehors festival!

“Playing a role, a caricature. We all have our habits, in our daily life, in our work, in our relationships with others. Our body language adapts to it. How to simply be in a complex ecosystem. Can we, in this infinite omniscience, rethink its habits and allow ourselves the opportunity to do otherwise. We are all influenced by codes and standards, we will be happy to revisit them.

For this work process I want to have a transparent and direct exchange with the participants: that we build the piece together through improvisation and each other’s curiosity. I will bring the sketches and they will fill them with their colors through their personal experiences. Let’s have fun!” 🙂

Transmission of Yuval Pick's piece to a group of amateurs

As part of the Amateur Dance and Repertoire program, the association Un pit R de danse has decided to cover Yuval Pick’s piece, Folks. With this project, the group wishes to develop the sense of the collective and the individual qualities of each performer.

Motivated by the idea of ​​the collective and the desire to share projects, the association  was formed in 2017 in Avignon. In order to go beyond the simple technical course, the members wanted to form a group that would meet during a choreographic workshop where improvisation, writing and instant composition would hold an important place. It is a way for everyone to develop their outlook on the world, their musicality and the encounter with others. The group meets weekly and regularly presents small or large forms in public space.

Very committed to gesture, rhythm and its inscription in space, the piece Folks is inspired by Israeli folk dances. It is made up of ruptures and repetitions, constantly in the process of reconstituting a balance in movement. For this piece, Yuval Pick was interested in being together. It was this idea that particularly appealed to the association and guided the choice of the piece.

Folks is a single 35 minutes sequence written for 7 dancers. The excerpt chosen for the group is an adaptation for 11 dancers which corresponds to the first 15 minutes of the piece. The transmission is conducted by one of the performers of the play, Lazare Huet.

at the theater!

An excerpt from Folks will be presented at a national meeting in the spring of 2023.
