Description of the class
Cyril Baldy's training focuses on the physical sensation, awareness and organization of the human body. How do bodies behave from the point of view of their materiality in dance compared to other forms of movement with which we are familiar. Movement, mobility and organization (not only of the body) are practiced. After a simple shift - movement, body sensation, change - the course will aim to experience form not as a stylistic exercise but as a way of being in the world, being with the world. The class will also explore the search for the movement of subjective perceptual experience. What if there were no single direction?
Cyrill Baldy was born in France and studied ballet in Paris at the Conservatoire National Supérieur. As a dancer he worked with Jeune Ballet de France, Nederland Dans Theatre II, Nederland Dans Theatre I and Ballett Frankfurt. From 2005 to 2014, Cyrill was with the Forsythe Company. Since 2014, he not only teaches internationally, but also choreographs and directs primarily William Forsythe's repertoire. Cyrill is also a part of HOOD and Sad.
