Alix Eynaudi FR/AT
Alix Eynaudi lives and works in Vienna. She was trained as a ballet dancer in the Opéra of Paris. She worked in various ballet companies before entering PARTS when the school first opened. In 1996, Alix joined Anne-Teresa De Keersmaeker’s company Rosas where she worked for 7 years.
Since 2005 Alix has been creating her own pieces: Crystalll, in collaboration with Alice Chauchat (2005), Supernaturel (2007), Long Long Short Long Short (2009), in collaboration with Agata Maszkiewicz. In 2011, she leads, together with Kris Verdonck, a research on the benefits of sleep and rest, which will turn into Exit (2011), a solo in which she puts the audience to sleep. In 2012, she creates Monique, a dance duet with Mark Lorimer, which finds its inspiration in bondage. In 2015 she premieres a group piece, Edelweiss, a danced rebus that oscillates between abstract and figurative art. She is currently developing two different projects, one is a collaboration with Alice Chauchat, Anne Juren, and Mårten Spanberg, Nature’s Nature, and the other a group piece, Chesterfield (dance, leather & poetry).
Besides creating her own work, Alix makes a point of continuing to develop projects with other artists, both as a collaborator and a performer. She took part in pieces by a.e.: Superamas, Kris Verdonck, Anne Juren, Boris Charmatz, Noé Soulier, Jennifer Lacey.
Alix’s artistic practice also involves teaching workshops a.o.in PARTS, Brussels, ImPulsTanz, Vienna, Reykjavik, Panetta Movement Centre, New York, Skolen for Moderne Dans / The Danish National School of Contemporary Dance and SEAD, Salzburg.
