At a time where media circulation is intense, in which way do we see the body in movement? How can we define intimacy while cameras proliferate in our daily lives? What borders should be created between what’s intimate and what’s public? Come and discover the work Yari Stiulo, Bettina Szabo and Isabella Cardoso developed during the videodance workshop led by Priscilla Guy and Camille Auburtin in fall 2017.
Public presentation: January 15, 2018 | 7 pm

Choreographer and film-maker, Priscilla Guy is director and founder of Mandoline Hybride, based in Montreal. Her repertory of eclectic works (in situ dance, videodance, stage performances) was presented internationally. Since 2012, she develops www.regardshybrides.com, a platform dedicated to the development of on-screen dance gathering resources and research tools and offering curator services as well as support for artists and presenters. Since 2013, she offers professional workshops at Circuit-Est centre chorégraphique with international artists. In the context of her artistic work, Priscilla pursues doctoral studies at Université de Lille SHS (France). Her research deals with self-representation of women on screen according to feminist perspectives.
Camille Auburtin is a director and dancer based in Nouvelle-Aquitaine, France. She has been doing researches about the body and movement for 15 years through creative documentaries, experimental movies, artist portraits and mediation tools for dance. Since 2013, she develops an artistic approach in the prison environment and creates collective videodances with inmates from the Maison d’arrêt of Bordeaux-Gradignan. She takes interest in the tension existing in this context between inside and outside, and in the possible ways of liberation between body and camera in a prison. She currently works on an experimental documentary about her grandmother now aged of 89 years old, a former ballet dancer suffering from Alzheimer’s disease. This film project describes the story of their relation, which started from the beginning, through the body and dance.
