DANCE ARTIST

I am a dancer, choreographer, performance-maker and teacher in the field of contemporary dance,  Contact Improvisation, 
performance practice and choreology. My main interest lies in making experience and representation meet in a theatrical context, and enhance the imaginary of people and places.
I like and make work that defies labelling and challenges 
audiences’ preconceptions of dance, displays exciting movement composition and 
establishes human encounters in a deep and spirited way. I put this at the core of my 
practice in performing, researching, making, teaching.

And here goes the picture: the Wind of Change is blowing… prepare your old tapes!

Gene Giron and I have been trying to get this Wind of Change started for a while and now it’s on its way: a new piece of dance theatre will be blown soon. We want it odd, exciting, daring and witty. At Agony Art here goes the teaser: please come and support us!

I have worked with Lisa May Thomas on her Homemade commission Shipwreck in Chisenhale Dance Space, London, and on her R&D in Dartington, Bristol and Bath for a new production Grassblades. We play a lot, perform many multitasks, and constantly question the place of improvisation and of set material in performance to create meaning and what feels like the right quality: “the zone”

This is the trailer to the solo piece Vertigos premiered on January 30th at The Place.

Soon I will develop the piece with theatre director Olga Masleinnikova.

Picture for the flyer of the piece now already performed: in developmental embryology, you learn that the face gets shaped in the folds of the heart, after which the spine supports the head further away from the heart.
So our face is a direct result of our heart.

Jean-Claude Ameisen on feeling

Vertigos is a solo work on myself, exploring form and feeling through the shapes, functions and organization of the heart. Looking for transparency and presence on stage. This solo is currently getting me to dig into some familiar and some surprising aspects of myself, but also to discover and re-discover what movement can do and can mean. Such a fascinating thing, idea, idea, concept, thing, thing, Movement. Looking for a form constantly refreshed. 

Will be performed on January the 30th as part of a triple bill for the Dance Platform Resolution!13 at Robin Howard Theatre, The Place.

http://agonyart.tumblr.com/ The Leopard Ladies is a newly formed collective of female improvisers. We devise frameworks and try to articulate what it is to create and compose in the moment, and makes it good, to do and to watch. See us try, fail and succeed, be inventive, supportive, familiar, a family, clustered, bridging, falling, spiralling, de and re-composed, listening, and in leopard prints.
