En chinoiseries


Taïwan - France

A show of the 40th birthday of the Centre Pompidou


In 1990, the Taiwanese dancer I-Fang Lin arrived in France. This very same year, the choreographer Mathilde Monnier and the jazzman composer Louis Sclavis create the duo Chinoiseries. I-Fang Lin, the “Chinese”, feeds herself with this performance to end today with her own creation. Teaming up with the musician François Marry, leader of the group Fràncois & The Atlas Mountains, En Chinoiseries is like a new country to inhabit, between two personalities, which share the same set, but also between two continents, two cultures and two temporalities.

Born in 1968, in Kaohsiung (Taiwan), I-fang Lin studied ballet in Taiwan (National Taiwan Academy of Arts and the National Taiwan Institute for the Arts), then contemporary dance in France (Conservatoire d’Orléans, Université Paris V and III, as well as the Centre National de Danse Contemporaine in Angers, where she graduated in 1993). Throughout her career as a performer, she has crossed paths with many choreographers and artists, such as: Didier Théron, Fabrice Ramalingom, Hélène Cathala, Jacques Patarozzi, Pierre Droulers, Anne Lopez, Emmanuelle Huynh, Philippe Katerine, François Verret (courtscircuits - 2011) – and Mathilde Monnier, with whom she has worked on several pieces since 2001. In 2008, she began collaborating with Christian Rizzo on the new work mon amour, then I Fang Lin / Christian Rizzo and has continued with le bénéfice du doute (2012). Add to this, since August 2004, I-Fang Lin has been an active certified practitioner of the Feldenkrais Method and is developing a work that integrates this practice with dance and improvisation. She conducts workshops in France and abroad.
