Dance artist Anouk Froidevaux shares choreographic research developed in collaboration with Canadian filmmaker and cinematographer Daniel Froidevaux.
Anouk’s work was born out of an immersive program at Tamalpa Institute in California with dance pioneer Anna Halprin and her daughter Daria Halprin where she learned The Life/Art Process®, allowing her to deepen her artistic practice through connecting with major personal life themes. Her research addresses the body as a point of intersection between themes around identity, nature, and contemporary society. Approaching the body as a meeting point where past, present and future converge, her work originates from a personal need to understand her relationship between feelings of displacement and ancestral history, while looking at the current climate crisis, as a mirror response to the violence inflicted on the feminine body. Her residency includes collaborating with Canadian filmmaker and cinematographer Daniel Froidevaux. Anouk is developing her choreographic language, which is grounded in her exploration between voice and movement, while adding a new dimension by working with film.
