2023 is joy-full of residencies for various projects

in February, i was with the Contact CompanI at Pôle 164, Marseille for a week of research on Contact Improvisation and performance supported by the Fonds citoyen franco-allemand. Excerpts of the final evening and visible here :

Contact CompanI au Pôle 164, Feb. 23 from Oddinmotion on Vimeo.

It was the 3rd time the Contact CompanI met after their one-month residency in Portugal last year and a focussed time in November 2022, at Kashdance CIAM in Marseilles. We worked on somatics (integrating organs and respecting their integrity while dancing Contact) and closed our 10 days of work with a public Underscore and a publish sharing improvising on the streets. Looking forward to more adventures with this team.


in January, i was with Anaïs Bérenguer at Badaboum Théâtre, a lovely cosy theater for kids. We were hosted to rehearse our Rivebo piece, a duet inspired by Natalie Diaz Poem “THE FIRST WATER IS THE BODY”

if you’re around, come and watch it May 10th Place Baverel, 13008 Marseilles, it will be shown during the OH MA PAROLE festival.




2022 was kind of fabulous with several performances, collective ones and solo. The one that will grow is called RIVEBO

Let your body flow

Feel the stream, the current of light inside you, going through

Feel the echo, feel a voice, unknown

Become that whisper, hardly audible babbling

Become stream and embrace those dark rivers

Let your body resonate to those earthy trance songs, which, perhaps tell about urban myths, colonised lands, and our own bond to the living

It all started reading and translating a poem by Natalie Diaz (Pulitzer Poetry Prize 2021 for Postcolonial love poem) and rehearsing with singer and vocal artist Anaïs Bérenguer.

We were so inspired by her poem called The first water is the body, that it became a poetic dance performance, performed in June and July in Marseilles and surroundings.

The project is produced by Cie Amako! and is happily supported by Théâtre BADABOUM a very nice venue for children in the very heart of old harbour in Marseille.

Our team will be in residency for several weeks in November 2022, January and March 2023.

You want to see more about this poetic performance ?


In 2022, i was also invited by Angela-Mara Florant to be part of the Contact CompanI and take part in a project called Back to the roots. We were a team of 9 performers and met for 3 weeks in SerVivo a place dedicated to dance in Portugal. We eventually performed in Lisbon and in Studio.

We will meet again for 2 weeks of residency in Marseille, at Kashdance-CIAM and PÔle 164. It feels fantastic to be reflecting on what is Contact Improvisation, where does it come from and how it resonates 50 years later.

Aude artist’s statement

I dance the space between, what’s unsaid but can be seen through the body.

As a performer and poet in motion, I explore personal landscapes, outside influences and spaces between. I use words, images and dance to go through a transformative journey, ritualized at times.

As an author and performer, i am currently working for Julie Avril and the Compagnie Accords Ouverts for a poetic and musical show on life pathways. It is called A voix multiples par multiples voies and premiered Sept. 18th in marseille, Théâtre du Centaure. We are performing again this September in Forcalquier, come along for an hour or two



Topics dear to my heart are a non-binary vision of life and a queer approach to dance and movement. The pandemic era allowed to dig deeper into alternative ways of researching movement, touch and human connections.
