Eléonore Didier (FR)

Habitual Gesture

Open to 15 Australian choreographers/dancers. EOIs due 18 Aug

The focus of this workshop will be to explore the sense and depth of the present time. Rather than focus on technicalities, Eléonore will share her universe of research and exploration, which is the heart and the base of her choreographic and visual language. Each day will begin with a work focused on the body, inspired by yoga, followed by a sharing of space-time devoid of judgment, structured by specific and surprising situations. Actions and seemingly habitual gestures will engage unexpected areas, sensory experiences and particular atmospheres. “What to do” is one of the problems of choreographic creation. “How to do” is perhaps even more a critical issue… (Eléonore Didier)

As a dancer, Eléonore Didier worked with Bob Wilson, Carlota Ikeda and Pierre Droulers. Created in 2005, in Lisbon, her solo piece Solides, Lisboa marks a step in the process of elaborating her singular choreographic language. Her work currently focuses on images of the body rooted in the collective unconscious that shape our representations.
