Cie Yvann Alexandre

Yvann Alexandre Company


More information about this collection


Since the start of his career in '93, Yvann Alexandre has established himself as the representative of an abstract, very pre-meditated form of dance, imbued with elegance, that is a far cry from the performances and improvisations by those of his generation and has a special attachment to the writing of movement and its transmission to audiences. Attentive to exchanges between professionals, amateurs and scholars, his work as a choreographer has taken him from the Pays de la Loire to countries around the world, including Canada (Quebec), Germany and Argentina. Both with his own Company and as a guest choreographer (CCN Ballet de Nancy, Norwest Tanzcompagnie, etc.), he weaves together a policy of exchanges, encounters, training and choreographic culture. His work tackles a reflection on the very substance of dance, remaining faithful to the concept of line. His highly precise body language overflows with detail and works as a kind of intimate calligraphy, whereby movement constantly seeks human substance.
