Chimion

Trio

Chimion questions human nature in relation to “Mother Nature.” Through organic, fluid, grounded movement, the trio shifts toward body language that is mechanical, linear and industrial. How do today’s lifestyles interfere with our relationships with ourselves, with others and with the environment?

Biography

Holder of a bachelor’s degree in dance, Emmanuelle Martin has performed on four continents with Sinha Danse, Bouge De Là, VanGrimde Corps Secrets and Trip The Light Fantastic. As a choreographer, she specializes in blending contemporary and urban styles, and is particularly interested in the expressiveness and energy of movement. She likes to experiment with rhythm, improvisation and isolations.

Artistic vision

I am fascinated by the universal language of movement and, more precisely, by the emotion it conveys, without the need for any intellectual understanding. It’s something raw, true and pure! Blending my backgrounds in contemporary, urban and Latin dance styles, I play with rhythm and repetition, leading to the deconstruction of movement and giving it a visceral quality. My work is guided by improvisation and body isolations.
