Carlès, James

James Carles is a choreographer, researcher and lecturer. He received initial training in dance and music of Africa and its Diaspora and then trained with the great names of modern dance in New York and London mainly. Since 1992, he hired an artistic and analytical approach that explores the “places junctions” between the dances, rhythms and philosophies of Africa and its Diaspora with technical and western thoughts frames. To date, his company’s directory contains more than fifty pieces of his own creation and authors like Katherine Dunham, Pearl Primus, Talley Beatty, Asadata Dafora, Geraldine Armstrong, Rick Odums, Wayne Barbaste, Carolyn Carlson, Robyn Orlin, etc.


Dancer soloist and outstanding performer, James Carles was performer and artistic collaborator for not only numerous “all music” ranging from Baroque to contemporary music, through jazz; but also choreographers such as Carolyn Carlson, Robyn Orlin, Rui Horta, Myriam Naisy, etc.

Artist associated with Astrada- Jazz In Marciac 2012-2014, research associate in the laboratory of the University LLA Créatis Jean Jaures Toulouse, James Carles is particularly invests in heritage projects for diversity and diffusion of choreographic culture. He is also founder and artistic director of the festival “Dances and Black Continents”.

Armstrong, Géraldine

Born in the Grenade island, Géraldine Armstrong studies the dance in London with Johnny O'Brien and Molly Molloy and continues her studies in Paris with André Glegolski, Jacqueline Fynnaert, Matt Mattox, Gianin Loringett. She co-founds in 1998 with Wayne Barbaste the Armstrong Jazz Ballet, who is called today "Black Source Dance Theater". Géraldine Armstrong knew to remain faithful to the single style of Alvin Ailey, composed of an alliance of the ballet dancing and black traditional dance, on the one hand, and of a brilliant comprehension of the most various musics and their relationship with the specificity of the movement, on the other hand.
