"The music is in Maud Le Pladec's choreographic work a place that could be described as essential: at the same time a basis, a method of composition, of acting power, it is what dance brings out: against which she struggles or with what she dialogues or merges. For this creation, which follows her appointment to the direction of the Centre chorégraphique national d'Orléans, Maud Le Pladec wanted to return to the blank page, to ask what was her dance; as an opportunity to rethink the bases, modes of structuring.
The Twenty-seven perspectives mentioned in the title, refer to the work of the artist Rémy Zaugg, who has engaged in his work 27 esquisses perceptives, the attempt to exhaust a painting by Cezanne. How to re-examine these artistic monuments belonging to the collective unconscious? In the manner of an "investigation of the perceptive act", Maud Le Pladec, accompanied by the composer Pete Harden, dug out the structure of Schubert's famous Unfinished Symphony to extract a series of subjective and fragmentary reinterpretations. By a radical act of dissimulation and spectralization of her presence, she moves the coordinates of the dance / music relation to open all the kinesthetic perspectives allowed by this negative inscription. The dancers become the writing of a music just as much as the vehicles of its renewed expressiveness. Act through this score that makes the dance vibrate, the tenfold, the tear, the bodies embark 5 on a frenzied exploration of space. In a dialectic between enlightenment and madness, hollow and full, Twenty- seven perspectives introduces a constant back-and- forth between choreographic composition and hidden symphony: a virtual and virtuoso counterpoint between hearing and gaze, movement and vibratory traces silence in trompe-l’œil."

Le Pladec, Maud
After completing the Ex.e.r.ce training at CCN Montpellier, Maud Le Pladec performs for several choreographers such as Georges Appaix, Emmanuelle Vo-Dinh, Loïc Touzé, Mathilde Monnier, Herman Diephuis, Mette Ingvartsen and Boris Charmatz. In 2010, she created her first piece Professor, choreographic piece for three performers on the music of Fausto Romitelli. In 2011, she created Poetry second part of a diptych around Fausto Romitelli. In 2012, she initiated To Bang on a Can, a research and creation project with three pieces and various artistic projects over four years (2012-2015). Ominous Funk and Demo, around and from the musical work of composers David Lang and Julia Wolfe, will be the starting point of this long-term project.
In 2013, Maud Le Pladec is a laureate of the Hors les Murs program at the Institut français and is conducting a research in New York on the current of post-minimalist American music. From this research came the creation of Democracy, a piece for five dancers and four drums (Ensemble TaCtuS) and Concrete (2015), a major project conceived for five dancers and nine musicians from Ensemble Ictus. In 2015, Maud Le Pladec was invited by the Lille Opera to collaborate on the creation of the 5 Xerse Opera (Cavalli / Lully, directed by Guy Cassiers, musical direction Emmanuelle Haïm / Concert d'Astrée). That same year, she initiated a new cycle of creations around the word given to women by co-creating Hunted with New York performer Okwui Okpokwasili.
Her works have been awarded with several prizes and distinctions: prize of the choreographic revelation of the Syndicate of the French critic in 2009, prize Garden of Europe in 2010, Knight of the order of arts and letters in 2015.
In 2016, she worked at the Opéra National de Paris on Eliogabalo (Francesco Cavalli) with director Thomas Jolly and under the musical direction of Leonardo Garcia Alarcon. At the same time, Maud Le Pladec is an associate artist at La Briqueterie – CDCN in the Val de Marne and continues to dance in the plays of Boris Charmatz (Levée des conflits, Enfant, Manger, 10000 gestes). Since January 2017, she succeeds Josef Nadj and directs theCentre chorégraphique national d'Orléans.
She created Moto-Cross (The Subsistances / Biennale Val de Marne), Je n'ai jamais eu envie de disparaître with the author Pierre Ducrozet as part of Concordan(s)e festival and Borderline in collaboration with the director Guy Cassiers, presented at Festival d’Avignon. In 2018, she created her last piece Twenty-Seven Perspectives, performance for 10 dancers built around Schubert’s Unfinished Symphony. In May 2020, she will create a new piece with for CCN - Ballet de Lorraine: Static shot.

CCNO - Centre chorégraphique national d'Orléans
Directed since January 2017 by Maud Le Pladec, the National Choreographic Center of Orleans (CCNO) places the issue of audiences at the heart of its priorities. Artistic creation in all its forms, approached transversally, encompasses the project. In all its dimensions and for all audiences. The CCNO invites people to share and to explore: the before and the after, and the around. Monday after-work workshops, Saturday brunches, festivals, classes and workshops, performance art, open events, conferences, participatory artistic creations – all resonate together with the creative work of the artists in residence at the CCNO or programmed at the Théâtre d’Orléans.
The CCNO opens its doors as widely as possible, roaming the city and its surrounding areas, their public spaces, schools and associations, initiating projects in partnership “with” – in a movement of “going towards”.
Multiplying artistic practices and perspectives, giving impulse to a permanent back and forth between seeing and doing – for audiences as well as for amateurs of all forms of dance. It is all a question of accessibility. Making encounter possible. Creating connections.
Make the city dance, rendering each body visibly present in our shared space.
As part of the Théâtre d’Orléans – along with the National Stage, the National Dramatic Centre, and the CADO – the CCNO contributes to the collective dynamic of this artistic quarter, favoring development of creative and innovative projects to the benefit of its audiences.
