Creation laboratory - Cycle d'Orphée 

During this creative laboratory, Alan Lake Factori(e) will share the foundations of his multidisciplinary approach to dance. He will invite you to dive into the heart of the creative process of his latest opus Le Cycle d'Orphée.


 At the source of the Cycle d'Orphée: a joint creation between dancers and actors in search of a raw and symbolist universe. During this laboratory, the dance part of the project will be investigated, the dancers will have the chance to familiarize themselves with the choreographic language of the company. Alternating between solo, duo and group work, they will then be able to explore and appropriate a gesture where the body lets itself be directly influenced both by its own internal climate and by the environment that surrounds it.
