Lisa GIMENEZ is a choreographer in contemporary dance. For the past twenty years, her work has taken her to Lyon, where she choreographed for the first three parades of the Biennale de la Danse in 96, 98 and 2000, at the Festival Montpellier Danse as a creation assistant for the Doug Elkins Cie (Theater of the Comedy). She produced several creations at the Théâtre de Nîmes and in the rest of France (Festival Uzès Danse, Danse à Roubaix, Festival Danse Dense in Paris ...), finally, in Eastern Europe in Poland and Moldova where she teaches in Master Classes.

She is now based on the Vivarais Lignon Plateau between Ardèche and Haute-Loire to develop what she calls her life project. His latest play La Baracande was presented on June 7, 2019 in Puy-en-Velay.

His training in contemporary dance was done with French choreographers, such as Odile Duboc, Michel Hallet Eghayan, Dominique Bagouet.

In 1999, his research led him to discover Dance Contact Improvisation with Patricia Kuypers. She deepens this approach mainly in Germany (Friborg Festivals, Ponderosa north of Berlin…), in Catalonia (Arlequi and L'Animal al Esquena centers) and in Poland where she lived founding experiences notably with Steve Paxton, Daniel Lepkof, Lisa Nelson, the Catalan company Mal Pelo, the Polish choreographer Vitold Jurevicz. Since 2015, she has received in-depth instruction from Julyen Hamilton, an essential performer on the European contemporary scene.

His teaching: "Today, I only teach Dance CONTACT IMPROVISATION which promotes everyone's well-being. I like to experiment and refine perceptions using the principles of relaxation, the flow of energies, freedom in the body and the opening of the mind. Creativity is thus awakened and allows the greatest expression. It is a playful search in solo or shared with others which never takes itself seriously, simply true and well felt ... "

Bastien Auber

Since 2011, I have been teaching Contact Improvisation at regular workshops, internships and festivals in France and abroad (Germany, Spain, Italy, Israel, USA, Russia, Ukraine, India). I trained in dance by traveling and working with many teachers of CI, instant composition and somatic approaches (Adrian Russi, Joerg Hassman, Charlie Morissey, Mirva Makkinen, Lisa Nelson, Isabelle Uski…). My approach to bodily dynamics is closely linked to the movements existing in nature (microcosm and macrocosm). I am also a geologist, practice meditation, the Authentic Movement and I attach poetic importance to dance. Currently, I am interested in the field of subtle bodies by training in geobiology and bioenergy.
