The career of Johanna Levy, choreographer of the company Ten, places her on the cutting edge between dance and theatre, with a strong influence from film. By examining the role of the audience, she creates work offering a perspective on dance, while encouraging active engagement from spectators. To achieve this, she directs her research directly related to the occupation of space by bodies in movement, examining how to explore angle of view and occupation of space.
After a global warm up of the body, in her class she invites us to encounter movement by different means, including manipulation, improvisation – alone, in pairs or in a group – and even the repetition of simple, rhythmic movements. She uses several methods of improvisation, always juxtaposing approaches with each other so as to lose sight of neither theatricality nor interaction between the participants.
