This class is composed of different approaches and techniques that Fabrice Mazliah has acquired over the years. It combines different types of somatic practices that deal with alignment, posture, direction and coordination, while incorporating elements of a martial arts technique called "Hino Budo" that Fabrice Mazliah has been practicing for over 15 years, as well as other dance and improvisation tools. This practice requires a certain level of openness, spontaneity and curiosity.
Fabrice Mazliah is a choreographer and performer based in Frankfurt. He has initiated long-term research into the embodied knowledge and heritage inscribed into practitioners in the field. He is interested in renegotiating the relationship between our environments, its objects, and our bodies. In his work he often combines movement with language to develop new forms of narrations and poetry. Born in Geneva, Mazliah studied dance in his hometown, at the National Dance School in Athens and then at the Atelier Rudra Béjart in Lausanne. After having been an Interpreter for the Nederlands Dans Theater, among other companies, he joined the Frankfurt Ballet directed by William Forsythe, which became the Forsythe Company in 2005 until 2015. He developed over the years a large body of works created alone and/or in collaboration with other artists, pieces such as Remote versions (2003) with the chekroun / mazliah / san martin collective, ZERO (2010) and Cover Up (2011) with the collective MAMAZA, P.A.D (2007) and Eifo Efi (2013) with Ioannis Mandafounis, In Act and Thought (2015) for the closure of the Forsythe Company, Telling Stories a version for three (2021) Sheela na Gig (2021) for the Lyon Opera Ballet. Since 2018 he begins a series called “The Manufactured Series”, composed of 10 Duets, each between a human body and a non-human body. Fabrice was artist associate to DeSingel in Antwerp, he was part of the HOOD collective with which he received a fellowship for two years at Pact Zollverein in Essen.
