Cécile Bally (FR/DE) & Emma Tricard (FR)

Dancer, choreographer and talker Emma Tricard is currently based in Marseille after graduating from the Master Exerce at ICI-CCN in Montpellier. Since 2015, she has been developing a choreographic research based on the observation and distortion between "saying" and "doing". Thrown into an adventurous quest, she invents dances of conjugation, thinks her work in the future tense and plays with the causal relationships between things, thoughts, movements and phenomena of nature. Always colored with humor, her projects are presented both in and out of the theater, resulting from multiple collaborations.

Cécile Bally is a Berlin-based choreographer with degrees in dance (HZT Berlin) and economics (École Normale Supérieure de Paris-Saclay). Her artistic work creates links between these two milieus and questions, with humour, the place of rationality and magical realism in performance. Cécile Bally anchors her work in the world of science fiction as a social critique and looks at predominant entities of current popular culture (the relationship of vampires to modernity, adolescence in peripheral spaces, human behaviour in the supermarket, etc.) provoking dreams and nightmares, utopian and dystopian at the same time.

Cécile Bally (FR/DE) & Emma Tricard (FR): Die Ausschreitung / Le Débordement

This residency at BUDA is the first rehearsal phase of Die Ausschreitung / Le Débordement, a collaboration between Cécile Bally (Berlin) and Emma Tricard (Marseille) that explores the notions of speculation and adaptation in science fiction. The future is planned by our governments, proclaimed by the media, its prophesying forces us to a perpetual adjustment and shapes our present. Thus, our ideas about the future shrink before they even have a chance to blossom: can we decide about the future or do we have to adapt ourselves to it? Le Débordement is an adaptation of a science fiction text, written collectively during participatory workshops in Aix-en-Provence, Berlin, Reims, Santiago and Kortrijk, into a dance performance. Between a literal and figurative treatment of the scenario, representative gestures and abstract mouvement, the text becomes our performance score. While dealing with this narrative fiction, we will look for possible gaps where the story can still be invented, negotiated, where everything is not already written.

This project is co-produced by Ballhaus Ost - Berlin, 3 bis f - lieu d'arts contemporains - Aix en Provence and Le manège de Reims - Scène Nationale. With support of kunstencentrum BUDA - Kortrijk and NAVE - Santiago. Funded by Hauptstadtkulturfonds, Fonds Transfabrik and RESONANCIAS (Goethe Institut + Institut Français Chile)
