Christophe Aslanian

My work finds its groove by being constantly on the move, traveling in a precarious and ethical movement.
Browsing the globalized world as we navigate the network, I pass midrange medium, transposing techniques, forms and languages -visual or sound - into each other in order to create links with other artists or other cultures.
This desire for communication between different origins and backgrounds is the main vector of my work, focusing on conceptual and visual research about what may be similar between two different things.

David Block

David Block began his musical career performing with post-punk groups in English clubs and bars. In 1996 he moved to Paris where he began composing music for Butô dance. He collaborates regularly with Butô dancers such as Juju Alishina or Dan'Ys and has recently composed soundtracks for the video productions of contemporary artist Silvère Jarrosson. His work is a sound sculpture foregrounding the concrete and structural aspects of sound. His compositions are adapted to each particular piece and always created in collaboration with dancers and choreographer. The music is not an isolated element but a constituent of a whole, it is conceived and evolves alongside the movements of the dancers and in coherence with the space of the dance.
"Sound is transmitted via the vibrations of air molecules. The role of my music is to make these molecules dance in correspondence with the dancers. The materiality of the bodies fuses with the immateriality of the ambient space, giving rise to a rational whole. A plastic artist creates an installation which is both adapted for adapts to a particular space, a particular atmosphere. Likewise, a musician accompanying dancers intervenes in the ambiance of the space of the dance, fusing space and movement into a cohesion".

Janusz Brudniewicz & Dev Lotro

Janusz Brudniewicz: interdisciplinary artist, he is an instinctive composer : he highlights the raw and sharp sound, without embellishment and without superimposed story. He takes care over the writing, in its slow, inexorable temporal development, in its composition, in an almost algorithmic evolution. He develops a process of organic evolution, facing the brute materiality of sound tissue, which, paradoxically, gives it its "flesh" and a sort of corporeality.

Dev Lotro: poet, vocalist, performer, he has a background both classical (opera) and contemporary (Roy Hart and technical Grotowsky). He also practiced contemporary dance some time. He participated in the contemporary opera by Marc Monnet, and he developed storytelling performances and poetry, in which he explores the possibilities of audio and textual improvisation.

Solène De Cock

Dancer. My diverse physical, vocal and graphic experiments, and researches around shamanism, are leading me to the practice of butoh. I studied mainly under the guidance of Gyohei Zaitsu, and also with Ima Tenko, Masaki Iwana, Atsushi Takenouchi, Moeno Wakamatsu and Natsu Nakajima. I've been performing two choreographies of Gyohei Zaitsu: "Today is the first and the last day of the world" (2013), "Never Done Nothing" (2014). My solo work take the name of Shen Nü Butō (神女 舞踏). Beside numerous improvised performances, I created two pieces with composer Gilles Monfort and dress designer Fukuko Ando: "Satya" (2012) et "Quetzalcóatl" (2014). I also created the duet "Pierrot désuet" (2016) with Gilles Monfort. I wish to offer this sensitive body as a bouquet.

Elle travaille jusqu'au 1995 avec cette compagnie et s'installe à Paris en 1996. Danseuse butô de la génération des année 80, elle développe sur cet art une réflexion et une approche personnelle. Elle expérimente de nouvelles formes d'expressions corporelles, à travers la danse contemporaine, la voix , l'art du clown, les arts plastiques et la vidéo. Improvisatrice, la transversalité des arts lui apporte un souffle et un regard minimaliste, fantaisiste, antinomique sur l'art du spectacle. Elle enseigne régulièrement à Paris.
Tudi Deligne

Tudi Deligne est plasticien, dessinateur, mais aussi danseur, et enfin parfois capoeiriste, quand il lui arrive d'être saisi par la vibration d'un berimbau. Il est diplômé de l'Ecole Supérieur des Arts Décoratifs de Strasbourg. Il découvre la danse en 2008. Dés lors le buto et les nombreux danseurs qu'il a la chance de rencontrer bouleversent complètement son appréhension des mediums artistiques qu'il s'est choisi. A la fois en tant que spectateur et en tant qu'auteur. Il étudie notamment auprès de Moeno Wakamatsu, de Masaki Iwana, et plus récemment de Katsura Kan.

José-André Deutsch

I studied classical music (instrument, writing). Then I took the outstanding GRM course whose teachers were Jacques Lejeune and Philippe Mion. This course was a revelation. To try to prolong it I went to the Paris Conservatory. I built three little composition studios, one of them, the Studio Magellan, with Régis Renouard-Larivière.
In the same time, interested by other musics, I followed Nidaa Abou Mrad in his projects and we founded the CEMUDAMM (center for studies in musics and dances of the Maghreb and the Mashreq) and the Centre de Musique Médiévale de Paris (medieval music center in Paris) whose scientific director was Marie-Noëlle Colette.
I was very interested in vocal music. I first directed the amateur ensemble Les Meslanges Baroques. Then I founded the vocal quartet for contemporary music Labyrinthus Noctis with Brigitte Lesne, Isabelle Brisard, Nadine Rémy and Alain Génuys.
I enjoyed the pleasure of teaching at the Paris VIII university, thanks to Francis Bayer who has been my teacher and to whom I am very indebted.
Then I did very different things in faraway lands...
I now come back to my first love: to compose with the world's sounds...

Marek Jason Isleib

I've been a mime, a professional classical, contemporary and improvising dancer in Germany, The Netherlands and Italy (learning many forms of movement, besides Yoga, Tai Chi and Feldenkrais, on the way).
-In 2000 I began to explore Butoh- Working with Hisako Horikawa, Katsura Kan and other masters i started liberating myself from accumulated forms. I practice and live Butoh. I live to communicate, to inspire, to share (perform) and to accompany ('teach') in the field of Butoh. My everyday practice is to perceive the world in and around me always anew. To live/dance what is unknown to me yet. To provide appearance to something that neither myself nor others have perceived beforehand. I lead classes of Butoh in my studio (Area Pega) in Milan (Italy) since 2012.

Masaki Iwana

Aujoud’hui l’un des danseurs buto les plus appréciés du Japon, il a créé et présenté plus de 500 performances solo qui l’ont amené à sa produire dans le monde entier (Tokyo, New York, Paris, Londres, Rome, Athènes, etc...100 villes dans 40 pays).Il a aussi réalisé son premier film long métrage « Vermilion Souls » en 2008, 2ème « Famille d’été » en 2010 et maintenant son 3ème film “La Princesse Trahison”.Il reste l’un des très rares à être demeuré fidèle à l’esprit originel de cette forme de danse, à en avoir gardé la force et la pureté subversive et à en perpétuer l’âme profonde.Masaki Iwana va à l’essentiel parce qu’il ne fait aucune concession au regard extérieur :il nous amène à quitter notre position de voyeur-consommateur et nous entraîne dans un au-delà de la représentation, dans son paysage intérieur.

Frédéric Rebiere

Since I graduated from a school of fine arts, I’ve been involved in performances in which the body, either suffering under compulsion or blossoming in sweetness, is essential. I’ve led a reflection about the body in relation to social norms. For 15 years, I’ve been working as a comedian among different theater companies. Always eager to learn and experience new techniques, I’ve attended different trainings in dancing, singing and circus arts. In 2006, I met Japanese dancer Gyhoei Zaitsu and discovered Butoh dance. This meeting marked a turning point in my career as a comedian. It brought a new approach to performing techniques, mixing rhythm and expression with my aesthetic ideals and intentions. My ambition is to develop a new kind of performance art on stage that conveys a poetic language through body movement. Site de Frédéric Rebiere

Sakurako is a conceptual-visual artist, performer and choreographer working worldwide and mostly in situ. Currently she is a long-term artist in residency at the Château Éphémère (Paris) working solo and leading a dance-theatre company “Re-United Now-Here” as an artistic director and choreographer. Although Sakurako was trained as a conceptual & visual artist, she also has been practicing martial arts and various dance and movement techniques after the graduation from the Fine Arts (Rietveld Academy in Amsterdam) in 2008. She studies a contemporary Japanese dance butoh with various masters around Europe and Japan.
Besides conceptual works, site-specific installations, sculpture, photography and video works, since 2011 Sakurako creates live performances using butoh techniques and balancing on the edge between performance art, theatre and dance. The works are conceptual with strong visual elements where the main focus is on presence and the authenticity of movements and gestures. The human condition is the main subject matter of her works as an ongoing investigation of the body/mind/spirit phenomena.

Since my early days as choreographer, Butoh dancer and acousmatic sound composer, I have believed that this specific work which stems from experiments in sound matter can be effectively linked with the complexity of the Buto in which the body is tirelessly explored and exposed on the stage. The Butoh dancer’s experience permit to join certain instability of time to his perception of the death in himself as a living existence. The sound materials help him to metamorphose his body and to open up his various realities to audiences, for example, those of a child, an old man, a bark, a mineral even a sprite. The languages of sound and body get damaged, fused and transmuted each other. My latest acousmatic work «Worlds» (25 min 50 sec) invites you a journey in the strange sound universe which is filled with the sounds of raindrops, purring, metallic noises, child monks'songs and the air of hesitation and chaotic vasteness, thus the «Worlds» assemble each work of sound. This work will mixed the choreography «Primitive Euchariste» from Emmanuel Borgo, buto dancer to «Worlds»: «My Solo is made of three parts: birth, life, death. It speaks about love and the sharing of wealth between me»

Corinna Torregiani (Karakori ai)

Comédienne et traductrice, elle rencontre la danse Butô dans le cadre de sa recherche personnelle sur le langage et l'expression du corps à travers le maître Alessandro Pintus. Fascinée par cette forme de danse quasiment primitive qui permet une expression intime et sans intermédiation, elle en commence la pratique en 2011. Elle vie et travaille à Paris, où elle conçoit ses propres chorégraphies et collabore avec d'autres chorégraphes tels que Juju Alishina et Sakurako. Dans sa danse, qu'elle veut hypnotique, elle conjugue et relie l'authenticité d'une expression essentielle, à une esthétique empruntée à la plasticité statuaire de l'art figuratif développée au travers de sa pratique de peinture et son travail comme modèle vivant. Elle est engagée dans un parcours d'étude de Danse-thérapie auprès de l'Université Paris Descartes.
