Anne Collod (FR)
Initially graduated in biology and environmental science, Anne Collod is a French contemporary dancer and choreographer. She performs with different French choreographers and co-founds the Quatuor Albrecht Knust (1993-2001), a collective of dancers dedicated to the re-enactment of 20th-century choreographic works.
In 2011, Anne Collod conducts an artistic research on the Dances of the Dead, supported by the French Institute program Résidence Hors les Murs. This brings her to Mexico and to Japan and leads her to create in 2014 The Parliament of the invisibles, a dance piece about the links between those who are gone – beings and works of art- and the living, haunted by a German Danse Macabre from the 30s. In 2017 her new work Exposure, an immersive dance, sound and light experience, explores the notion of energy exchanges between a performer and an industrial environment. She is also regularly invited to teach in different schools and dance programs, and is trained in the Feldenkraïs method.
Anne Collod (FR): Moving Alternatives
Moving alternatives put at the heart of its project the reenactment of solis and group pieces of Ruth Saint-Denis and Ted Shawn, precursors of American modern dance. Anne Collod’s new creation will examine, through the prisms of gender and cultural appropriation, the different figures of otherness deployed in the luxuriant work of these choreographers, nourrished by Indian and Asian dances. Six performers rich in a great variety of cultures and experiences will explore in movement the esthetical and political effects and issues of today’s reinterpretation of theses works.
