En danseuse



A stage installation in which the images of dance, the sounds and the "live" dance are brought together. The play is based on the idea that the choreographer’s body is the very source of his creation. Therefore the play generates the idea that this body carries within an authentic History of dance. Vast and singular, this History is made of different dances, the ones already experienced, the ones seen, the ones dreamed of and also everything that can be considered as a "choreographic material". En danseuse questions the importance of the image in the choreographic memory and gesture.

Alain Michard is a choreographer and visual artist. Starting with dance as his ‘roots’, his work today involves leading a wide range of different artistic projects, using a variety of artistic media (music, film, photography, writing).
Alain Michard collaborates regularly with other artists. He also invites local people and non-professionals to participate in the work he creates.
A common thread in his work is the theme of wandering and journeys, and the search for a community: BING, based on texts by Beckett, Parkinson (2007-2013). Some pieces are designed for public spaces, and explore perception, and the imaginary essence of towns and landscapes: Promenades blanches (2006-2016), Se fondre (2012), Caravane, ...
Another important focus of his work is research on the notion of a collective history of art, based on living memory and documents: École ouverte, J’ai tout donné, Mon Histoire avec la danse, La carpe et le lapin,...
As a performer he has worked principally for Odile Duboc, Marco Berrettini, Boris Charmatz, Xavier Marchand (theatre) and Judith Cahen (cinema).
He has collaborated on various different projects with other artists, including: Nicolas Floc’h, Mathias Poisson, Jocelyn Cottencin, Stalker, and choreographers Mustafa Kaplan, Loïc Touzé...
He has received awards from the Villa Kujoyama-Kyoto (2001) and the Villa Médicis Hors les murs-Istanbul (2009).
