P=mg

P = mg is the physics formula for weight, the gravity force pulling an object towards the Earth, just because it is in the vicinity of the Earth. This force is omnipresent, it impacts every particle of our body and it is constantly pulling us towards the ground, although we're so used to it we're not even aware of it. Besides this inevitable physical dimension, 

I wanted to draw attention to a psychological dimension, just as universal as the first one, a weight we are often not aware of either, that makes us veer off course or slows us down. Sometimes it comes from other people, sometimes from ourselves, our fears, our believes, our prejudices... I think that if my family hadn't been so against my wish to dance, I may never have become a professional dancer. 

On a bare stage, P=mg is an experiment, a trial situation with gravity amplified : which stages would a body have to go through to adapt and overcome that exacerbated gravity? How can such constraint become fuel, a springboard to aim further and higher, enabling the body to reach a place it might never have reached without that obstacle?

Gallois, Jann

Self-taught by nature, Jann Gallois entered in the dance world in 2004 through hip hop doors. Very soon she was known by many choreographers such as Sebastien Lefrançois, Sylvain Groud, Angelin Preljocaj, Sebastien Ramirez, Kaori Ito, and collaborated with each of them for a series of creations from 2008 till 2014.

In 2012 after a strong professional experience as a performer, Jann decided to found her own company, Cie BurnOut, and to write her first own solo piece, « P=mg » for which she was 9 times awarded by national and international prizes, such as Paris Young Talent Prize and Beaumarchais-SACD Prize in Paris, Solo-Tanz Theater Prize in Stuttgart, Masdanza Prize in Canary Islands, Machol Shalem Prize in Jerusalem, and Gdansk solo dance contest Prize in Poland.

In 2015, Jann Gallois confirmed her artistic signature, combining hip hop and contemporary dance, by creating once again a solo-piece called « Diagnostic F20.9 », for which she was nammed “Dance Bearer of Hope” of the year by the german newspaper Tanz. In 2016, she created « Compact » a duet piece with her main partner Rafael Smadja.

Plasson, Fabien

Born in 1977, Fabien Plasson is a video director specialized in the field of performing arts (dance , music, etc).

During his studies at the Ecole Nationale des Beaux-Arts de Lyon (joined in 1995) Fabien discovered video art. He was trained by various video artists (Joel Bartoloméo Pascal Nottoli , Eric Duyckaerts , etc) .
He first experimented with the creation of installations and cinematic objects.

From 2001 to 2011, he was in charge of Ginger & Fred video Bar’s programming at La Maison de la Danse in Lyon. He discovered the choreographic field and the importance of this medium in the dissemination, mediation and pedagogical approach to dance alongside Charles Picq, who was a brilliant video director and the director of the video department at that time.

Today, Fabien Plasson is the video director at La Maison de la Danse and in charge of the video section of Numeridanse.tv, an online international  video library, and continues his creative activities, making videos of concerts, performances and also creating video sets for live performances.
