LOONY / NON DEFINI

Alexandre, Yvann

Born in La Roche-Sur-Yon in 1976, Yvann Alexandre began dancing at the Amicale Laïque du Bourg and at the Conservatory of his hometown, then in La Rochelle with Colette Milner, Christine Girard and Brigitte Asselineau. He continued his training in Montpellier with Epsedanse directed by Anne-Marie Porras and, at the same time, also trained at Montpellier CCN (National Choreographic Centre) then under the direction of Mathilde Monnier. During this period, his encounter with Christian Bourigault and other foundational teachings led him to forge the bases of his creative work and his pedagogy. At just sixteen years old, he composed his first works and went on to establish his company in Montpellier in 1993. He produced his first creations for the Hivernales in Avignon and for Montpellier Danse festival.

In addition to his creations, performed on numerous prestigious stages and festivals in France and abroad, he was also the guest of the CNSMDPs (Higher National Conservatories of Music and Dance) of Paris and Lyon, of Quebec and Montreal, as well as the National Choreographic Centre in Nancy and the Nordwest Tanzcompagnie in Germany.

He gained a reputation over these 25 seasons of creation as the representative of abstract, highly-premeditated dance, far removed from the performances and improvisations of others of his generation, and had a particular interest for movement writing.

Even today, his work addresses reflection which focuses on the very substance of dance, where the notion of plasticity gives way to the movement’s own energy, all the while remaining faithful to the idea of line, an element which has existed for him from the very beginning. His creations place movement and scenography on the same footing, like two subjects on equal terms: the plastic matter totally interacting with the body-matter.

His extremely precise body language is full of details and is structured like rather intimate calligraphy.
