Warm Up Session Jean-Biche x Closer Music

This Warm Up Session is part of the Closer Music Festival with multi-disciplinary artist Jean-Biche.
Open to all.
Recommended to wear comfortable clothes to move in.
For those who can, please bring high heels.

For this next Session, Jean-Biche proposes a gender-bending warm-up, embodying the subversive strategies of performance art and sharing them with the participants. Movement will be followed by a reflective exchange was we disidentify with normative constructs through a collective corporal act.

Warm Up Sessions : a training for the body and mind. From jumpstyle to ballet, from break dance to contemporary, practice then discuss the indispensable movements and gestures that anticipate a performance - the ultimate moment of sharing with an audience. Each Session will begin with a warm up led by the invited dancer or collective, and will be followed by a discussion on themes bridging body movements and social realities : the performativity of the human condition, circulations and physical disruptions in a decorporalized era. With the Warm Up Sessions, we aspire to associate bodily effort with mindful effervescence.

Curated by Madeleine Planeix-Crocker.
