Komposition circles around the theme of the group: how do we look at a group, how do we experience a group and how does the audience appear to a group on stage? Komposition is an intense choreographic work that provides sensitive insights into the cooperation of the dancers Marianne Baillot, Alix Eynaudi, Anne Juren and Agata Maszkiewicz. In accord with the meaning of the title, the dance work is a putting together – more accurately, a “dancing together” – by four women. It provides an independent perspective of how a group of dancers can act on the stage in that they employ the characteristics and experiences of each individual as a primary tool of choreographic performance and reception. Constantly present on stage, they underline their differences but without erecting a comparison. They encounter and touch each other, dance together, consolidate gestures and make so much of this moment until they are surprised by their own activity.
Anne Juren – project initiator – is a Viennese choreographer with classical education (Conservatoire National Supérieur de Danse w Lyonie) followed by contemporary training at Trisha Brown Studios in NYC. Alix Eynaudi after studying ballet at Opéra de Paris entered PARTS – Brussels based school of Anne Terese de Keersmaeker (for whom she danced later in her Rosas company for 6 years). Polish artist Agata Maszkiewicz graduated Institute of Dance Arts at Anton Bruckner Privatuniversitaet in Linz (Austria) and then studied choreography at Centre Choreoghraphique National (CCN) in Montpellier. Marian Baillotfinished her studies in Grenoble (socio-political science) and trained dance in France and abroad (SEAD, Linz, DanceWEB). All four artists met before working on different projects in various constellations.
