YOU and US
creation 2018

From a first version created in May 2016 at K'Arts University in Seoul with eleven young dancers from Asia, the emmanuel Grivet company will produce the piece YOU and US during the season 2017-18 with a cast gathering French and Korean dancers.

Are there, then, spaces, contexts, paths in which the individual's legitimate aspiration to express and develop his or her personal potential and the equally legitimate need for social and collective organization can converge ? Are there places, utopias, imaginary in which the group can serve the personal fulfilment of the individual and where the singular expression of each person can nourish the quality of the common project ? And above all, what processes, what “modes of existence ”(Bruno Latour) towards this ?

Voici... toujours

creation 2017

In 1999, the company presented Voici, a play bringing together five dancers and three sculptures on stage in an open frame, where the soundtrack and the lights were created in the moment. First exploration for emmanuel Grivet of the possibilities of instant composition as a matter for choreographic projects, it was recreated twice during the 2000s, danced by several different casts and widely performed in France as well as in Israel and Mexico. Voici has thus become an emblematic piece of the company.

The meeting of the Shin Dance Company on the Korean tour in 2016 set up the desire to rework the material of this play – around the notions of power and fluidity – with the recoil of the years and confront it with the different culture of movement encountered among Korean dancers and in the Eun-ju Shin company.


Cartes Blanches

saison 2016/2017

L’Escale Tournefeuille
improvised music and dance evenings

The Carte blanches provide the opportunity to gather some artists – dancers and musicians – who participated in the company path and who join again for one evening.

As convinced lovers of instantaneous composition, the invited performers, each time an original cast, go for adventure, play without any restriction with their pleasure and their differences and compose, beyond their individual stories, some piece of life that deal with the "common and singular" polarity.

An atmosphere mixing delicacy and derision, poetry, moods and drivings out of the rules.

After Avignon where a first step of this piece was performed during the festival, Résonnance(s) the new production of the company has been premiered at the Escale in Tournefeuille on November 4th  and 5th 2016 and then performed at l'Estruch, Sabadell (Spain) on March 18th 2017.

Through an imagined biography Résonnance(s) presents a character in transition worried by existential thoughts. The  audience driven from traces to indices and from bits to evocations discovers the frame of this singular trajectory.
