With Ana Pi.

During this Warm Up Session, choreographer-researcher Ana Pi proposes to experiment with the practice of ANCHORED BODY; peripheral dances, sacred gestures.
As a collector of gestures (ancestral and contemporary) from the African diaspora, the artist invites us to experience their foundations and the states of the body that weave them together.

This session will be an opportunity to navigate between these stories set to music and images, as well as to address a question at the heart of Ana Pi's work, namely dance as a place of healing.

A cycle curated by Madeleine Planeix-Crocker.
Sportswear recommended, all levels.

CORPO FIRME; danças periféricas, gestos sagrados est la pratique qui elle développe et partage depuis 2010. Actuellement, elle est en création de The Divine Cypher, projet en Haïti pour lequel elle reçoit la bourse pour l’art en Amérique Latine du MoMA—New York et Cisneros Institute, également la chorégraphe associée du projet Dancing Museums en France, ainsi qu’artiste associée au bureau de production Latitudes Contemporaines.

Born and raised in Los Angeles, Madeleine Planeix-Crocker is associate curator at Lafayette Anticipations.

In 2018, she founded the "Warm Up Sessions", a cycle of public and participative meetings around training practices in dance and performance. In the spring of 2021, she proposes the "Dérives" series, which aims to contribute to the writing of new histories of the arts through dialogues co-constructed with contemporary artists. Her interests lie at the crossroads of research and curation of feminist, queer and intersectional performances.

Madeleine is also co-director of the Chair "Troubles, Dissidences and Aesthetics" at the Beaux Arts de Paris and a permanent member of the Scientific Research Council of the ESAD in Reims.

A graduate of Princeton University in cultural studies, Madeleine obtained a Master's degree in Media, Art and Creation from HEC Paris and a Master's degree from EHESS. There she carried out a research-creation project with the association Women Safe, where she now runs a theatre and creative writing workshop. Madeleine is currently doing a thesis at EHESS (CRAL) on contemporary communal performance in France.

She has practiced dance and theatre since childhood.
