Warm Up Session x Echelle Humaine #1

With Sophie Demeyer and Katia Petrowick from Gisèle Vienne Company
Warm Up Sessions joins forces with the second edition of the Échelle Humaine festival to present the training technique deployed in Gisèle Vienne’s piece, Crowd (produced at the Festival d'Automne à Paris, September 25-28, 2019). What place is allotted to individual conditioning in this representation of collective euphoria? Is it possible to sustain a distinct performer’s agency in a polyphonic choreography, delicately balanced between violence and eroticism? We will explore these questions and many more through movement and discussion with Sophie Demeyer and Katia Petrowick, members of the Gisèle Vienne Company.

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.
