Alix Eynaudi [Brussels]
29.10 – 30.10.2008
The choreographer and dancer Alix Eynaudi trained as a classical dancer at the school of the Paris Opera before studying at P.A.R.T.S. in Brussels. She was one of the first highly talented students to graduate from Anne Teresa De Keersmaeker’s school. From 1996 to 2003 she worked with Rosas, collaborating on six creations. Alix Eynaudi has also worked with Alice Chauchat, the Austrian-French company Superamas and others.
In her first solo creation, Supernaturel, she invites the audience ‘to look ahead into the past and look back at the future’. She firmly believes we are able to perceive far more and far more intensely than we actually do. If we trust our imagination and manage to cancel out our disbelief, this, if we allow it, will generate ultra-micro-perceptions, nano-perceptions, which make our world different, deeper and more intense. The here and now will expand, and we shall leave behind Euclidean space and linear time. Inanimation, memory and virtuality heighten our experience of what we will refer to for the time being as ‘reality’. ‘Without felt thoughts, we’d be dead.’
In Supernaturel Alix Eynaudi appears alone on stage. The project was developed in close cooperation with Olivier Tirmarche and Bruno Pocheron.
