Alice Chauchat, Louise Trueheart
In the frame of 9. Tanznacht Berlin 2016
This is an invitation to dance, to learn together and from one another: These two choreographers will share the things that they do not know and that they are trying to understand. Such processes are opportunities to continuously re-invent their relationship to each other throughout the performance. Chauchat and Trueheart play with the flow of asymmetries between them, while attending to the game-loving shapeshifter of their duet as she emerges.
Concept, Choreography and Performance: Alice Chauchat invites Louise Trueheart | Technic: Gretchen Blegen | Production: Alice Chauchat | Co-production: Louise Trueheart. Supported by Tanznacht Berlin. Special thanks to Dock11 / Eden and TheaterHaus Mitte.
Alice Chauchat is a choreographer, dancer, assistant, teacher, etc. She choreographs mostly in collaboration with other artists and co-developed numerous platforms for the production and exchange of knowledge in the performing arts (everybodystoolbox, PAF, praticable). From 2010-12, she was Co-Artistic Director for Les Laboratoires d'Aubervilliers. Recently, her choreographic practice has been geared towards processing the knowledge and complexity of collaborative practices into an aesthetic experience. www.alicechauchat.net
