Spekies

Spekies

A tense solo, Spekies propels a ghost-body through a big bang orchestrated by the guitarist Marc Sens.  

A variation about disappearance, the piece Spekies (which in Latin means appearance, aspect, vision), deploys a very physical form of dance, bringing together a dancer and a guitarist, fifty survival blankets and several dictaphones. Starting with the enigmatic phrase by Jacques Derrida, “the future can only be for ghosts”, Magali Milian and Romuald Luydlin wanted to seek a form of appearance – that of an ultra-sensitive silhouette, transformed into a relic – based on a text by the crime novelist Caryl Férey inspired by the Egyptian Book of the Dead, that was deafening, like a hypnotic litany. Upon hearing the tiniest vibrations, the guitarist Marc Sens creates an wave of impact; the body resists, submits and surpasses itself. Everything works through interaction; every sound, every movement, every word gives birth to a body that has been forgotten, sent to the edge of the world.

Milian, Magali

Magali Milian trained at the Avignon conservatoire and the CNDC in Angers.       
Romuald Luydlin trained in Buto with Sumako Koseki and No Theatre with Master Kano.

Together, they practise aikido and cultivate different approaches with the body.   
They founded the company La Zampa, where they both act as choreographers and performers.  
Since 2000 they have tackled different formats (small form, group pieces, short films, performances).     
In 2005, the carte-blanche project Dans le Collimateur, commissioned by DSN-Dieppe Scène Nationale, allowed them to hone and strengthen their relationship with music.         
This experience gave rise to a collaboration with the GMEA in Albi, the National Centre for Musical Creation.
Their works, La Tombe du Plongeur, Call me Sand and Dream on have also been shown on current musical stages.       
They continued along various back routes by combining the world of the collective Red Sniper (the musician Patrick Codenys and the visual artist Kendell Gers) with that of the director and video artist Bruno Geslin, for whom they performed Crash(s)! Variation, a free adaptation of a novel by J.G. Ballard.          
With the guitarist Marc Sens they created Requiem (2010) using text by the rapper Casey.
In 2012 they joined the author collective Les Habits Noirs (Caryl Férey, Jean-Bernard Pouy) to create Dégradés.           
In 2012/13, they participated in the European programme Modul Dance/EDN (European Dancehouse Network) with Spekies, a piece for a dancer and a guitarist, based on a text by Caryl Férey.      
That same year, they performed a reprise of Mauvais Genre, a piece by Alain Buffard.     
They have been 'associate artists' at the Théâtre de Nîmes for the 2015 and 2016 seasons, during which they created B&B, a piece for a younger audience, Pixies 9ch, a performance/sound installation by Valérie Leroux, and finally Opium in collaboration with the journalist Julien Cernobori.

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.
