La Méthode des Phosphènes

In the context of Twice, Emmanuel Eggermont and Robyn Orlin,  two choreographers from universes with very different aesthetics, have  worked for the first time on the conception of a piece for a young  audience. Performed by the same duet of dancers, these two scores form  both a programme which is both sensitive and committed, reflecting two  ways of approaching the world, while dancing and sharing it. In La méthode des phosphènes,  Emmanuel Eggermont let himself be guided by the luminous phenomena that  form on the surface of the retina, so as to imagine a dance which is as  fluid and ephemeral as a coloured impression. Dreamers of transitory  worlds, the dancers follow this luminous shimmering like a score, an  imaginary trace generating movement. Faithful to the intransigence that  characterises her, the South African choreographer Robyn Orlin has  decided to take on Otherness and the phenomena of violence and rejection  which it creates, by addressing those who are its first victims:  children and adolescents, very quickly confronted with the question of  discrimination. In order to be them, we must be us... operates a  transformation of the attention and perception of otherness through the  comprehension of our own inwardness: “So as to be them, we have to be  ourselves.”

Eggermont, Emmanuel

Emmanuel Eggermont trained in contemporary dance at the National Centre for Contemporary Dance (CNDC) in Angers (class of 1999). He went on to participate, for three years, in the creations of the Spanish choreographer, Carmen Werner, in Madrid.

In 2002, he was invited to South Korea to take part in a project mixing pedagogy and choreography. Fascinated by this culture, he decided to settle there and choreographed several pieces of work.

Upon his return to France in 2005, he became a performer for Raimund Hoghe, with whom he shared an interest in dance that hit the all-essential, in particular in “Bolero Variations” and in “Si je meurs laissez le balcon ouvert”.

In 2008, Raimund Hoghe choreographed the solo entitled “L'après-midi” for him.

At the same time, Emmanuel Eggermont pursued his own choreographic projects with the Anthracite Company in Lille.

In 2007, he created the solo “1/8” and, since 2010, he has been in residence, in parallel, as an artistic researcher for the L'L (Brussels).
