Florence Augendre at DOCH OPEN LECTURES

Introduction to connective tissues, Fasciapulsology into Dance

In this flow of fast speed communication and urban human conditioning, how do we still welcome the Nature of transformation?

Through this lecture, we will envision the understanding of our deep innate-inner supports on physiological and philosophical levels. A presentation of some of the research will be followed by an exchange, gathering experience and facilitating its translation in verbal language as well as body-language.

By inviting mutual consent, we hope to create the opening of communal poetic space.

About Florence Augendre

Florence Augendre (FR/BE) is an independent choreographic artist, author, researcher, performer who has developed her work in various artistic fields such as theater, cinema, contemporary dance, opera and visual fine-arts. She completed her education in Body-Mind Centering® as a certificated practitionner of Fasciapulsology (IFCC-Christian Carini), and is studying with Catherine Shainberg (School of Images, Saphire™) for the last four years.

Her work engages creativity as one's own experience, discovering the deep self and the layering of our physical constitution. Her researches pursue on how the diverse aspects of consciousness converge to enhance knowledge of inner-life motion and empower expressivity. On expanded realm, the exploration of common or singular experiences vitalizes the imaginary, body qualities, and can bridge metaphors into framed performances.

Her collaboration with many various artists has been to bridge in experience the nuanced aspects of the dance landscape, acknowledging its richness and diversity, and recognizing by engaging from abstract to narrative, from conceptual to experimental, from acting to witnessing, the place of its ground - among them, Wim Vandekeybus, Meg Stuart, David Hernandez, Austrian- German group Labor GRAS, Johanne Saunier/Jim Clayburgh, Brice Leroux, Lance Gries (N.Y.), Steve Paxton, Lisa Nelson, Label Cedana, Olga de Soto, Fabrice Ramalingom, Félicette Chazerand, Koen Augustijnen, Les Ballets C de la B, Michèle Noiret, François Brice, Quanta Art, collective Les Inéluctables, Belgium team documentary collective IDOCDE, and Emanuela Iacopini.
