The group

GrOup (Besançon, Bourgogne-Franche-Comté)

The association grOup is the result of the initiative of participants in the Transmission project, initiated by the Scène nationale de Besançon and led from 2012 to 2015 by Caroline Grosjean. Forced to admit that this adventure would come to an end, several participants concerned themselves with the future. This initiative found an echo over and beyond the Transmission members. Today, seventy amateur dancers meet up regularly for the projects, training courses and experimentation opportunities proposed.

The project

The grOup members share great curiosity for the various approaches to dance and, in particular, for what can nurture each individual’s physical imagination. When the association was set up, the aim was to be able to meet up all together around a long-term, large-scale project, while retaining the regular, professional coaching of one or more choreographic artists. Occupying public space and especially the street is another major aim of the group’s current members. This has already taken the form of several performances in Besançon’s public spaces: some members danced to Christophe Tarkos’s poetry (BIP project), others danced with piles of clothes and paper, drawing inspiration from Anna Halprin’s Parades and Changes, while others gathered at the Frac in a work by Suzanna Fritscher. 

Le Batard, Anne

ANNE LE BATARD After a career as a dancer (companies Karin Vyncke in Brussels and Georges Appaix in Marseilles), she founded the company Ex Nihilo in 1994. She explores the relationship between the dancer and dance to space and to others as well as the spectator’s place. She has developed a specific writing form, focused on listening and responsiveness, fed by long periods of immersion and research in public space. Her approach to dance is closely linked to a practice of the photographic image and video. 


With JEAN-ANTOINE BIGOT , they have written about fifteen choreographic pieces, ranging from duets to com- positions for 15 or 17 dancers. They teach and train in France and abroad the repertoire
and the technique of the company through workshops and specific creations.

Bigot, Jean-Antoine

JEAN-ANTOINE BIGOT has performed in France and Belgium (companies Pierre Doussaint, Karin Vyncke, Héla Fattoumi and Eric Lamoureux...) In 2000, he joined the company and
has since shared from the artistic direction with Anne Le Batard. Alongside his career as a dan- cer, he continues his visual arts practice through drawing and painting. With Behind the White, he confirms this desire to join his two practices in one performance.
