Flat/grand délit

Since Vincent Warin began BMX ('Bicycle Motocross') and became French champion and second in the world, he has been carrying out artistic research through the virtuoso exploration of movements and the relationship that can exist between a man and a bicycle. In Flat / grand délit, the choreographer Yann Lheureux makes him embody the sensitive figure of someone who flaunts and distorts rules and normal use by performing 'flat', one of the specific disciplines of BMX that pushes the technique to its extreme, in order to produce figures with pure balance, without touching the ground with one's feet...
 

Vincent Warin (second in the world, French champion, and more) has tasked himself with amazing us. Both instrument and partner, his BMX reinforces the technical aspect of the solo while producing a greatly poetic effect. The being and the object are indivisible. This union between the two practices and two cultures of BMX and dance offers the audience a sensitive, unique score.
 

“The sporting discipline of BMX comprises several major disciplines, including flat, a diminutive of flatland. It is on this binding space that rage, dance, doubt, solitude, exploits, sharing and more are practised; looking ourselves like looking in a mirror of our futures.”

Vincent Warin

Lheureux, Yann

After imposing himself on the street hip-hop dance scene in the 80’s, Yann Lheureux received the “1st international solo prize” (Turin and Béthune) in 1987 and 1988 during the “Rencontres Chorégraphiques” organised by the Fédération française de danse.  From 1990, he worked with companies directed by Didier Théron, Philippe Saire and Hervé Diasnas… until 1994, when he created his own company. 

His nomadic childhood existence, between sub-Saharan Africa, Germany and France led him to intuitively develop his artistic research into the links between identity and place. These questionings intensified from 2003, when the Company took up residence in the Atelier, in the centre of Montpellier. The issues of rootedness, of belonging, of fleeing, and of integration in a place, became the cornerstones of his artistic researches.  Yann Lheureux experimented, in show after show, with questions about ‘here’ and ‘elsewhere’. He made numerous pieces, performed in France as well as abroad, in theatres and urban spaces, where dance meets other forms of writing, other media, and other approaches (video, multi-media, urban arts…).

Starting with « Flagrant délit » (created in 2012) and in projects through till 2017, Yann Lheureux is depicting the intimacy of the human being through a series of portraits. This work was initiated by « FLAG » (created in 2012-2014), and will continue using women (The Rare Birds, created in 2015-2017). The project consists of choreographic sequences based on notions of force, achievement and fragility. It explores how to reveal and show these facets of identity on stage and in the public arena.

The two projects in development, « Gravity.0 » (2016) and « Red Circle » (2017), mark a transition from the intimate human figure to that of the group. They demand new forms of dramaturgy wherein Yann Lheureux will explore innovative relationships between the artists and the audience.

Yann Lheureux  has a diploma in Body Mind Centering (Amberst / USA), and has led a diversity of pedagogical projects: workshops subsidised by AFDAS, dancer training for various national centres of choreography, international teaching programmes (United States, Tunisia, South Korea…).
