Waves

Choregraphy : Sun-A Lee - 10'
Transmission : Sun-A Lee
Sound design : Benga, Skream 

An encounter between sound waves and the energy of movement. “When the music starts, my energy speeds up my heartbeat. I can feel the blood rushing through my veins, transmitting waves of growing intensity around my entire body. They dance in my conscience, becoming perceptible on the outside as movements.”

Sun-A Lee

Welcome

The dancers of Compagnie Grenade like movement, the use of space and rhythm, and delight in sharing this choreographic research and these emotions with each other and the wider public.  They are prepared to go in search of new worlds.  

It was for this reason that this year I wanted to continue to work with other choreographers whose strangeness, differences and humour can highlight the quality of these dancers. 
For the 20th anniversary of Grenade (the 2011 production), the guest choreographers were mainly male; I thought it was interesting to continue this experience with the involvement of female choreographers. I therefore asked for one of the most representative pieces of the strong, unique world of a variety of French or foreign choreographers, whether well-known or emerging: Blanca Li, Sun-A Lee, Katharina Christl, Eun-Me Ahn, Dominique Hervieu, Germaine and Patrick Acogny. They produced a wide range of unusual, personal visions of the world to create a rich and celebratory programme.

Baïz, Josette

Josette Baïz, who was trained by Odile Duboc, has been teaching contemporary dance since 1978 in Aix-en-Provence, where she created her first choreographies for young dancers who took part in her classes.

In 1982, when she was a dancer for Jean-Claude Gallotta, Josette Baïz won first prize in the 14th edition of the Bagnolet International Choreographic Competition, as well as the public prize and the French Minister for Culture's prize. She went on to found her first company: The Place Blanche, and has since created over 40 works, for her own companies and for an array of national (Toulouse, Jeune Ballet de France of the Lyon Conservatory, etc.) and international ballets (Boston, Royal Ballet of Phnom Penh, Germany, Venezuela, The Netherlands, etc.).

In 1989, the French Minister for Culture invited her for a year as artist in residence for a school in the Northern districts of Marseille. This encounter with young people, from a variety of cultures and backgrounds, led her to reconsider the signification of her work and to radically modify her artistic approach.
The confrontation with proposals as diverse as breakdance, smurf, hip-hop, oriental, gypsy, Indian and African dance, obliged her to totally reappraise the physical and mental skills she had acquired.
She was totally unacquainted with the supports, the way the ground was used, the circular movements of the hips, the sharp strikes of flamenco and the loosened pelvis of African dances.

And so, a process of mutual exchange was initiated: Josette Baïz taught contemporary, classical dance and composition in research workshops; the young dancers taught her their way of asserting their origins and feelings.

It was, therefore, only natural for Josette Baïz to create the Groupe Grenade, which brought together over thirty young dancers, in 1992. In 1998, Josette decided to perpetuate the cross-cultural work undertaken with the Groupe Grenade, whilst continuing to pursue an intensely contemporary perspective. She created the compagnie Grenade which comprised five key dancers from the Groupe Grenade.

Josette Baïz's wish is to continue to enhance this choreographic repertoire by continuing to partner artistically with French and international choreographers; by taking part in cutting-edge and original multidisciplinary projects and, as such, initiating encounters and exchange.

Lee, Sun-A

Sun-A Lee began practising and studying dance in 1998. In 2003 she received her diploma in choreography at Han-Sung University in Seoul, before graduating from the Korean National University of Arts in Seoul.

The Korean artist Sun-A Lee received attention in Europe in 2007 following her solo 'Performing Dream', which received the French Embassy prize at the Yokohama Dance Collection competition at the beginning of the year. She then began a six-month residency in France, followed by the Jury Prize and the Audience Prize at the Spanish festival Masdanza, where she was once again named laureate in 2011 with 'Waves'. Immediately following this, she began a creative residency for 'Touch!', which was shown in 2012.


She bases her research on micro-movement, which highlights the body's tiniest movements. Her pieces have been shown in some fifteen countries in Europe and Asia. 

She also collaborates with other choreographers, in particular as a soloist in 'Light Bird', Luc Petton's 2015 creation, whose world premiere was shown at the Théâtre National in Chaillot in May 2015.
Her solo 'Waves' (2010) was also passed on to Josette Baïz's Compagnie Grenade, where it was included in the 2014 repertoire. This piece was a key part of the “Welcome” programme, which toured France at locations such as the Maison de la Danse in Lyon and the Pavillon Noir (Aix-en-Provence/Ballet Preljocaj). 


In June-July 2015 she was invited to give a masterclass on micro-movement as part of the international “Camping” programme at the Centre National de la Danse, which brought together the most creative dance schools, including P.A.R.T.S. (Brussels), the London Contemporary Dance School and Berlin's HZT.

Collaboration between a choreographer and a writer can lead to the emergence of a large number of combinations. If sometimes the choreographer creates his dance around the work of an author, the writer can also choose dance as the subject of his text.
