Anne Lise Le Gac — OKAY CONFIANCE

 

She studied at the Fine Arts School in Strasbourg from 2003 to 2008, focusing on performance art. She completed the ESSAIS master programme for dance at CNDC Angers in 2013. In 2014, she worked with choreographer Claudia Triozzi. Anne Lise Le Gac has also created solo pieces such as La Caresse du Coma and a collaborative performance project, GRAND MAL, with Élie Ortis, which they presented at the Les Urbaines festival (Lausanne), at Festival Parallèle (Marseilles) and at the TQW reopening weekend.

Since 2015, she has been co-organising the performance festival OKAY CONFIANCE that was recently held at La Ferme du Buisson (Paris).

In July 2018, in residency at Centrale Fies (IT), she starts a new performance project in collaboration with the artist and musician Arthur Chambry. This creation will be presented in spring 2019.

Anne Lise Le Gac — OKAY CONFIANCE

La Caresse du Coma is built like a drift: from chapter to chapter, Anne Lise Le Gac adjusts her subject, constantly attempting to “bastardise reality to let fiction ooze in.” Said fiction is born of a desire to redefine our relationship with the other — whether it be human, digital, animal, or vegetal.
“I have been staying in a four-star hotel-spa in the heart of Croatia for about forty days now, during a gathering of people who are in search of Happiness, convinced that they live in an INFINITE LIVING WORLD.
Within the group, they each have a transitory status: as I am new, I am automatically a DOG, “a loving machine”, and my number is 23.
At the beginning, DOG (23) didn’t know anyone, and soon COACH, PIRATE and ANGE 92Kcal shared their advice, beliefs and practices with it. Today, DOG (23) meets LIQUID VIRGIN, the spectral figure of the movement. Her presence is manifested by a breath called YOLO, a kind of primordial atmosphere, a passing contact that DOG (23) will have no choice but to inhale and spit out. »

  • “The features are not really working steps
    but rather chapters in a novel
    or the saga ALIEN 1 / ALIEN 2 / ALIEN 3
    or when Doc Gyneco asks Bernard Tapie, Renaud or Johnny Hallyday to sing alongside him.
    And for the moment I’m presenting each of them separately, because a feature lasts between 50 minutes and an hour.
    Each feature is a meeting between a DOG (23) and another bastard species met in the Croatian spa.
    Chronologically speaking:
  1. La Caresse du Coma ft. COACH
    2) La Caresse du Coma ft. PIRATE
  2. La Caresse du Coma ft. ANGE 92Kcal
    This YOLO feature is a new pirate conversation, currently being written in collaboration with musician Loto Retina.

"What’s this painting ? It’s not a painting, it is a map. And you will find your way inside.
A memory palace takes place, and we often meet there. Among other things, we grow
oblivion. This palace does not have any address, it is closer to campfire than pyramid. It can
light up more or less everywhere. We made it a purée, a yoghurt-song, a fountain, a boogie, a
false memory, a blackbird, a speaking map. You can touch the surface where our rides
intertwine. In our hands, the matter is soft. On a terrain with hazily edges, we begin a trip
without resolution."

Performance et interprétation Anne Lise Le Gac | Création lumière Nils Doucet | Production - Diffusion Parallèle - Plateforme pour la jeune création internationale 

 

She is staying at a four star hotel-spa in a godforsaken part of Croatia among a group of people seeking Happiness.
Within this group, they all have a status: as she is new, she is automatically a DOG, with number 23, she is the 23rd dog.
They don’t know one another and share advice, beliefs and customs.
However they are quite convinced they live in an EXTREMELY LIVELY world, life ad infinitum.
Anne Lise le Gac invites us again for a conversation. She takes us to subterranean worlds, marginal customs, pirate love and crossbred species.

 

* “featurings are not really works in progress
but rather the chapters of a novel

or like ALIEN 1 / ALIEN 2 / ALIEN 3
or like the episodes of a TV show

And for now I present each of them separately, because each featuring lasts from 50 minutes to an hour.
You see?

In the chronological order they were written, there are

1) La Caresse du Coma ft. COACH
2) La Caresse du Coma ft. PIRATE
3) La Caresse du Coma ft. ANGE 92Kcal

Grand mal

performance

27 Jan 2018
Tanzquartier — Vienne
26 Jan 2017 — 19H
Théâtre des Bernardines — Marseille

It starts with a collection of non-professional dance videos found on the internet. They are called Danses glocales. The collection has become a Conversation between Elie Ortis and Anne Lise le Gac. Most of the time, it happens "on line", because Elie lives in Paris and Anne Lise in Marseille. This conversation is called Grand mal and is endless. Material is gathered with joy / shamelessly and the conversation is set to be shared with an audience, from time to time.

You are with two solitudes. The Essays by Montaigne came into play and the music by Gigi d’Agostino became obvious. Grand mal is a conversation, a toolbox, a wall, an attitude. 

In corealisation with Théâtre Gymnase-Bernardines
