“I would like to meet you on Saturday morning if you feel like sharing a moment together, as a family, as a couple, in your living room, your bedroom, your bathroom or your garden. Let’s kick up the walls, let’s jump, let’s shout, if we can’t get out, we’ll release a dancing and powerful energy, with a slight madness… “

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.

Johanna Levy
studied dance at the Conservatoire de Lyon, at Maurice Béjart’s school in Switzerland and graduated with a university master’s degree in Performing Arts at Paris VIII. She spent a few years in London dancing for various companies, and toured internationally for eight years with the American company Troika Ranch, based in New York and Berlin. Back in France, she collaborated with the visual artist Alex Ceccetti, the contortionist Raphaëlle Boitel, the director Laureline Collavizza, and the choreographers Gaëtan Brun Picard, Emilio Calcagno and Thomas Chopin. She created her Compagnie Ten in 2013 and is part of the emerging choreographic landscape. She delights in discovering her own identity and originality. With the help of her loyal collaborators, she is able to explore her choreographic style focusing on the physical and emotional states that unfold around a particular situation.
