Nutida: Emelie Leriche
måndag, 2 maj kl. 12:00 – 13:30
Emilie Leriche’s class is structured from the ground up. Starting on the floor, meeting gravity, introducing movement by way of exploring one’s connection to the ground, the class involves a mixture of floor and phrase work paired with improvisation. With a mix of playfulness and curiosity the class will focus on the weight of the body, the limbs, and allowing movement to flow continuously through form, moving -with ease- from one place to the next.
Bio: Emilie Leriche is a freelance performer and creator, based in Berlin, Germany. From 2017-2021 she danced with GöteborgsOperans Danskompani under the artistic direction of Katrín Hall. During this time she originated roles in new works by: Yoann Bourgeois, Paul and Christine Blackman, Sharon Eyal, Club Guy and Roni, Roy Assaf, Marina Mascarell, and Damien Jalet.
Leriche began her career dancing with Hubbard Street Dance Chicago under the direction of Glenn Edgerton; after two years in their second company, she spent another four dancing in the main company prior to moving to Sweden. In recent years she has created work on Scapino Ballet Rotterdam and ISHIDA dance company, and generated her own research alongside her colleagues at GöteborgsOperans Danskompani.
In 2021 her project, On Mending (a collaboration with Shawn Fitzgerald Ahern), was selected for Orsolina 28’s “Call for Creation” fellowship where the work was originally developed as a dance for film. With the support of the Princess Grace Foundation, in 2022 the work will continue its development as a live production in residence at the Baryshnikov Arts Center in New York City. She is commissioned by NDT II to create a new work for the company in the summer of 2022.
