Tiamat

The anchor point of the play is linked to an event which is the second bombing of Baghdad in March 2003. This first impulse then raised, the myth of Tiamat, (the sea) born of Babylonian cosmologies. But the first step, an instant echo to this trauma, was to choose Debussy's music for its "therapeutic" virtues: the idea was to absorb shocks and give birth to a body that builds.
The solo is based on a principle of verticality, or at least resistance to gravity. This is accentuated by the decor, a ceiling of steel plates and medical pockets, designed by Christophe Gonnet.
The presence of this piece influences the dancer, delimits his course (the shadow cast on the ground) or acts in a certain way on him, while his body, at times resists pressure, aspires to elevation. Franck Besson worked out the light according to this structural constraint of the ceiling, creating a sometimes abysmal atmosphere.
The presence of the room on the ground, a wall of water, reminder of the materials of the ceiling and represents a "source" place, a strategic presence in the play space.
The solo is danced to contemporary music by Jean Louis Clot composed in response to "La mer" by Claude Debussy.
It started out as a global project in the form of a diptych that included a solo response by one byte, danced to the original music of La Mer by Debussy.

Picq, Charles

Author, filmmaker and video artist Charles Picq (1952-2012) entered working life in the 70s through theatre and photography. A- fter resuming his studies (Maîtrise de Linguistique - Lyon ii, Maîtrise des sciences et Techniques de la Communication - grenoble iii), he then focused on video, first in the field of fine arts at the espace Lyonnais d'art Contemporain (ELAC) and with the group « Frigo », and then in dance.
   On creation of the Maison de la Danse in Lyon in 1980, he was asked to undertake a video documentation project that he has continued ever since. During the ‘80s, a decade marked in France by the explosion of contemporary dance and the development of video, he met numerous artists such as andy Degroat, Dominique Bagouet, Carolyn Carlson, régine Chopinot, susanne Linke, Joëlle Bouvier and regis Obadia, Michel Kelemenis. He worked in the creative field with installations and on-stage video, as well as in television with recorded shows, entertainment and documentaries.

His work with Dominique Bagouet (80-90) was a unique encounter. He documents his creativity, assisting with Le Crawl de Lucien and co-directing with his films Tant Mieux, Tant Mieux and 10 anges. in the 90s he became director of video development for the Maison de la Danse and worked, with the support of guy Darmet and his team, in the growing space of theatre video through several initiatives:
       - He founded a video library of dance films with free public access. This was a first for France. Continuing the video documentation of theatre performances, he organised their management and storage.
       - He promoted the creation of a video-bar and projection room, both dedicated to welcoming school pupils.
       - He started «présentations de saisons» in pictures.
       - He oversaw the DVD publication of Le tour du monde en 80 danses, a pocket video library produced by the Maison de la Danse for the educational sector.

       - He launched the series “scènes d'écran” for television and online. He undertook the video library's digital conversion and created Numeridanse.


His main documentaries are: enchaînement, Planète Bagouet, Montpellier le saut de l'ange, Carolyn Carlson, a woman of many faces, grand ecart, Mama africa, C'est pas facile, Lyon, le pas de deux d'une ville, Le Défilé, Un rêve de cirque.

He has also produced theatre films: Song, Vu d'ici (Carolyn Carlson), Tant Mieux, Tant Mieux, 10 anges, Necesito and So schnell, (Dominique Bagouet), Im bade wannen, Flut and Wandelung (Susanne Linke), Le Cabaret Latin (Karine Saporta), La danse du temps (Régine Chopinot), Nuit Blanche (Abou Lagraa), Le Témoin (Claude Brumachon), Corps est graphique (Käfig), Seule et WMD (Françoise et Dominique Dupuy), La Veillée des abysses (James Thiérrée), Agwa (Mourad Merzouki), Fuenteovejuna (Antonio Gades), Blue Lady revistied (Carolyn Carlson).

La Trisande

Founded in 1997 by Delphine Gaud and Franck Besson, La Trisande resided in Lyon until 2004, and created ten pieces. Bombyx Mori (2000), created at the Lyon Biennale of dance, encouraged its development. Liber Mundi (2003) and Tiamat (2004) asserted the identity of the company. These creations have been praised by the press and a loyal public.
 

In 2004, La Trisande moved to a former spinning mill in Saint-Julien-Molin-Molette (42). His studio, called Les Ailes de Bernard, in homage to the dancer choreographer Bernard Glandier, is open to dancers from all backgrounds, and intended for research, creation, training and interdisciplinary exchanges. We offer an internship program between February and October.
 

In 2006, Delphine Gaud opened a new research component, linked to space and landscape. She creates From Near or Far, a room for the outdoors, and explores another relationship with the spectator and the performance space.
 

Since 2006 she has been working on an original project, Tropismes, the fruit of her collaboration with visual artist Christophe Gonnet, whose central question is: are we able to slow down? This research has already given birth to 3 pieces: Tropismes trio (outdoor form of 50 minutes for 3 dancers), Tropismes duo (scenic form of 32 minutes for 2 dancers) and a performance form of the duo, more suited to public places such as museums , contemporary art centers.

Meeting with literature

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.
