For this master class in the form of a choreographic workshop, Julien Monty will explore some of the choreographic principles that govern Anne Teresa de Keersmaeker’s works. Magic squares, pentagons, circles and rosas are all notions that affect both the dancer’s body and the spatial organization of a group. We will discuss how, starting from very simple scenarios, she methodically elaborates choreography of a stunning richness.

Julien Monty joined Anne-Teresa de Keersmaeker’s Rosas company in 2011. He premiered with her Cesena, Vortex Temporum, Work/Travail/Arbeid, Mitten wir im Leben sind / Bach6cellosuiten and Cosi fan tutte for the Paris National Opera.

For this exceptional day of artistic training in Orléans, he will unveil the compositional tools specific to Anne-Teresa de Keersmaeker’s work: her relationship to space and music.

Anne Teresa De Keersmaeker
burst onto the contemporary art scene in the early 1980s, with pieces that have since become essential references. Choreographed according to the principles of repetitive music, Fase in 1982 and Rosas Danst Rosas the following year renew the link between music and dance that had become partially estranged since the works of Merce Cunningham and John Cage. The Belgian choreographer has constructed a living repertoire, punctuated by emblematic pieces such as Mozart/Concert Arias, Rain or more recently Zeitung and The Song. A repertoire she maintains with her company, Rosas, and the school she created in Brussels in 1995, P.A.R.T.S.

Julien Monty
graduated from the National Conservatory of Paris in 1997. He joined the Ballet de l’Opéra de Nice and then went to Norway to dance with the B-Valiente Kompani and Nye Carte Blanche. Back in France, he joined the Ballet Preljocaj for two seasons. Later, he worked at the Ballet de l’Opéra de Lyon where he tackled the work of choreographers such as Mathilde Monnier, William Forsythe and Philippe Decouflé. Since 2001, he has been collaborating with François Laroche-Valière. Julien Monty co-founded the Collectif Loge 22 in Lyon with Marie Goudot and Michael Pomero in 2005, in which he works both as dancer and choreographer. He joined Anne-Teresa de Keersmaeker’s Rosas company in 2011. In 2018, Julien Monty appeared at the CCNO with Ashley Chen’s Rush project.
