Gravité

Gravité is both an installation and a piece of choreography for a body on water. Light and sound constantly traverse them to reveal the minuscule movements that unite them.  
 

“(...) Fabrice Lambert has succeeded in creating an unsettling hypnosis session. In front of a large white screen, a man lies on a black stage covered in a thin layer of water. With a single light projector, his very slow movements are reflected in an incredible way on the screen. (...)  
A uniquely effective virtual dive.”
Rosita Boisseau, Le Monde, 28 February 2008

Lambert, Fabrice

Born in 1974 in Grenoble, Fabrice Lambert trained at the Centre national de danse contemporaine d'Angers (National Centre for Contemporary Dance Angers) (1994-1996). Once he finished his training, he founded the Expérience Harmaat with Yuha-Pekka Marsalo, to create two pieces: Ethogrammes and Étude pour 4 mouvements (Study for four movements) (1997). He joined the Kubilai Khan Investigations collective (1996-1998), then the Carolyn Carlson dance company (1997-1998).

In 1998, he began a long-term collaboration with Catherine Diverrès at the Centre chorégraphique national de Rennes (National Choreographic Centre in Rennes), which lasted until 2002. He has also worked with François Verret, Emmanuelle Huynh and Rachid Ouramdane. Since 2000, Fabrice Lambert has been the artistic director of the Expérience Harmaat, where he continues his creative and research work.

THE EXPÉRIENCE HARMAAT

The Expérience Harmaat is a space in which artists from various disciplines come together to work on the projects of the choreographer Fabrice Lambert. Their common goal is to examine the concept of movement, each in their own artistic field.  Since 2000, visual artists, video artists and dancers have participated in the creation of many pieces: “No body, never mind” (2001), “TOPO” (2001), “Le Rêve” (The dream) (2002), “Play Mobile” (2003), “Imposture” (2004), “Frédéric Lambert” (2004 – commissioned by the SACD / Le Sujet à Vif), “Abécédaire” (alphabet book) (2005), “Meutes” (packs) (2006), “Gravité (gravity) (2007), “D'Eux” (From them) (2008), “Virga” (2009 – commissioned by the SACD / Le Vif du Sujet), “Solaire” (Solar) (2010), “Faux Mouvement” (False movement) (2012). These works have been performed both in France and abroad.

Longstanding loyalties are forged over the course of the projects: Hanna Hedman, assistant, dancer, teacher, Philippe Gladieux, lighting technician and video artist, and Ivan Mathis, dancer and lighting technician, have collaborated regularly with the Expérience Harmaat since 2001. The Expérience Harmaat enjoyed a three-year residence at the Manège, the Roche-sur-Yon national theatre, from 2003 to 2007, at the Theatre Le Vanves during the 2009/2010 season, and at the Ferme de Bel Ebat in Guyancourt during the 2011/2012 season. In 2012 it began a three-year residence at the CND (National Dance Centre) in Pantin, with the support of the Seine-Saint-Denis administrative department.
