The group 

Atelier amateur (Cazals, Occitania)

The Atelier amateur is a group comprising seven dancers aged between thirty-three and forty-nine years old. They met when participating in workshops organized by the Faits et Gestes association, focusing on individual exploration work, collective improvisation and instant composition. This workshop work led to the creation of several projects with the Compagnie Divergences which, above and beyond simple technical practice, enabled them to experiment with the various creation process phases and to present performances.

The project

Inspired by the famous video made by the artists Fischli and Weiss, Der Lauf der Dinge [The Way Things Go] based on an immense domino effect, Jefta van Dinther’s work places emphasis on the transmission of movement from one body to another. This physical exploration works like a chain reaction, where bodies are subjected to pushes, falls, pressure, disequilibrium. On a proposal made by Sylvain Huc, the Atelier amateur dancers incorporated this long sequence of actions, constantly on the verge of collapsing: a unique approach to movement, which enables them to experience time, space and the relationship with the public.

Van Dinther, Jefta

Jefta van Dinther (SE/DE) is a choreographer and dancer working between Stockholm and Berlin. He grew up in Sweden, after which he moved to the Netherlands and graduated from the Amsterdam School of the Arts (MTD) in 2003. His work is characterized by a rigorous physical approach and always implies a staged research of movement itself. The moving body is centerfold in his work but belongs to and interacts with a body of light, sound and materials that constitute an environment of perception and sensation. The dancers work and dance their way through various environments: their processes exhibited live on stage become performances. Jefta's work deals with illusion, the visible and the invisible, synesthesia, darkness and light, labor, the uncanny, affect, voice and image. They often play with formats of presentation, and range from traditional dispositifs to installation like settings as well as from smaller intimate performances to large-scale productions.

Currently on tour are As It Empties Out (2014), Plateau Effect (2013 - a commission for Cullberg Ballet), THIS IS CONCRETE (2012) as well as the previous GRIND (2011). His other works include The Blanket Dance (2011), Kneeding (2010), The Way Things Go (2009) and IT'S IN THE AIR (2008). The next creation with the working title EXTENSIONS will premiere in January 2016. Between 2012-2014 he was appointed artistic co-director of the MA program in Choreography at the University of Dance and Circus in Stockholm together with Frederic Gies.
