Chant VI

CHANT VI / creation 2008

Choreography Sophie Tabakov

In "Book VI" of Virgil's “Aeneid”, Aeneas descends into the underworld to question his father, Anchises. Guided by twin doves and the Sibyl, the prophetess, he accomplishes a journey out of time, in “a twilight zone”.     
"Chant VI" is a choreography of this crossing. The voice of the reciter unveils extracts from the work of the “Aeneid”. The murmur of the words accompanies the dancers step-by-step. Video images are projected on a screen like intangible evidence, linked to the text and the choreography.         
Chant VI is also a tale of crossing over between the past, the present and the future, in other words, how to accept the legacy of an ancestor, symbolized by a heavy, woollen cloak.

Tabakov, Sophie

Sophie Tabakov is a dancer and choreographer. At the age of 14, she decided to dedicate herself to dance. She studied contemporary dance with Wes Howard, Michel Hallet Eghayan, Margaret Jenkins (San Francisco) and classical dance with Thomas Enckell and Dyana Byer (New York). From 1984 to 1990, she was a dancer in the Michel Hallet Eghayan Company.

She founded the Anou Skan Company with Laurent Soubise and, since 1993, they have been creating danced and sung events in Lyon that integrate ritual and encounters with other cultures. She won the Villa Médicis Hors Les Murs award for her research project on the ritual dances of Indians from the North-West Pacific Coast of the USA and Alaska.

She studied world singing with Borys Cholewka, sacred chant with Sister Marie Keyrouz, and opera with Anna Nozati. She participated in Javad Téhranian's classes (an Iranian whirling Dervish) on the sacred art of whirling and in Maia Mihneva's classes on traditional Balkan dances.

She participates in the Théâtre Narration's creations on an ad hoc basis.

Soubise, Laurent

Laurent Soubise is a dancer, a sensorial movement practitioner and a choreographer.

A graduate in natural sciences and in educational studies, Laurent Soubise was a professor of life and earth sciences until 1985. He discovered the world of dance during the first Biennale de la Danse in Lyon (1984) and decided to become a dancer. He studied contemporary dance with Michel Hallet-Eghayan and classical dance with Thomas Enckell. From 1986 to 1992, he danced with the Hallet-Eghayan Company and studied yoga with Myriam Coquin. He was awarded a “Lyon, capitale de la danse” scholarship in 1988.

From 1993 onwards, he studied the Danis Bois method (somato-psychoeducation), as he wished to incorporate sensorial movement into his dancing practice: he was awarded the “Sensorial Movement Practitioner” certification, with excellence, in 1996 and the “Fasciatherapy and Sensorial Movement” diploma (Danis Bois method) in July 1998.

He enriched his work as a dancer by working on Carlos Castaneda's magical passes and participating in Javad Téhranian's teachings on the sacred art of whirling. From 1997 to 1999, he taught at “La scène sur Saône”, a training centre for actors.

He founded Anou Skan with Sophie Tabakov and, since 1993, they have been creating danced and sung events in Lyon that integrate ritual and encounters with other cultures.
