Warm Up Session x Echelle Humaine #2

Avec Steven Michel
For the second Warm Up Session produced in collaboration with the Échelle Humaine festival, dancer and choreographer Steven Michel is invited. Performer of Jan Martens’Sweat Baby Sweat, presented during the festival, Steven will share the physical challenges of an individual communing with a partner, giving birth to a pas de deux that navigates between resistance and tenderness.

Recommended to wear comfortable clothes to move in, open to all.

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.

A series curated by Madeleine Planeix-Crocker.
