  • Llamame Lola, Mickaël Phelippeau – January 17-18
  • Bords, Ivana Müller, Gefördet le Fonds Trans Factory – January 29-30

Tanztage (Berlin)

There’s wonderful news for France also at the Tanztage Festival, where Aline Landreau will present, in collaboration with musician Antoine Monzonis-Calvet, the first performances by VOX. Focusing on the musical, or even noise-creation dimension of her voice, Aline Landreau has been perfecting one of the key elements of her choreographic work, namely the physical, immediate, hence spatial and sound dimension. Jule Flierl will present Un son n'a pas de jambes sur lequelles se tenir (A sound has no legs to stand on). Inspired by this quote by John Cage, the artist sets up a core of spatial sounds on stage, all sounds coming from the artist herself. The audience is asked to choose a spot in the room, and to feel their individual sound experiences. Dance and music come together in her voice.
  • Aline Landreau - Vox/January 7- 8
  • Jule Flierl - Un son n'a pas de jambes sur lequelles se tenir/January 13-14

Biennale de Danse / Heidelberg

The new Dance Biennale of Heidelberg will be held once again, on January 22-31, 2016.
For an energy-filled opening, the French troupe Wang/Ramirez will be presenting a duo at the Marguerre Room at the Heidelberg Theatre. Other guest troupes, from all over the world, promise us a program that is as just as exciting; Guilherme Botelho, Chris Haring, Maura Morales and above all Rizzo, the new Director of the Choreographic Center of Montpellier.
