Bruit de couloir
What are our reasons for living at different ages in life? What are our fears? Our joys? And, when death does come, what do we feel? Do we return one last time to the film of our life?
With Bruit de couloir, Clément Dazin analyses our sensations when, close to the end, in a coma, we relive a few crumbs of existence. Drawing inspiration from testimonies of people who have experienced these moments in a coma, he creates a dead juggler and dancer who remembers life with wisdom. During the piece, every moment can be seen several times and in different ways. In terms of the dance, sometimes flirting with hip hop, it is in turns jolting, fluid or light, creating a unique juggling where the balls become more than instruments, but genuine partners.

Quickly taking an interest in movement, Clément Dazin started gymnastics at the age of six. At sixteen he turned to the circus, and more specifically juggling, by joining the company Point Bar, in which he discovered the pleasure of creation. While also studying, he continued to train in movement and the stage with hip hop and drama lessons and by practising juggling and acrobatics in various structures. This allowed him to encounter very different worlds and to become aware of the divisions that existed between each of these techniques.
In 2008 he joined Ménival, the Lyon circus school, followed by the Centre national des arts du cirque in 2009. During this training, he rubbed shoulders with Philippe Genty, Aragorn Boulanger, Johanne Saunier, Julien Clément and Bruno Dizien.
Clément Dazin developed his world by working on the links between contemporary dance, hip hop dance and juggling, and became aware of the benefits of combining disciplines to extract them from their environment. Juggling thus takes on meaning and it not limited to a technical demonstration. Similarly, hip hop techniques allow time to be distorted without being authenticated as belonging to the hip hop environment.
In 2012 he went on tour with the end-of-year show from the 23rd year group of the CNAC, This is The End, directed by David Bobee. In 2013 he choreographed Bruit de couloir, a dance and juggling solo, and worked on Saccades, a participative circus project in collaboration with the collection Microfocus and the Muchmuche company.

The committed artist
In all the arts and here especially in dance, the artist sometimes creates to defend a cause, to denounce a fact, to disturb, to shock. Here is a panorama of some "committed" choreographic creations.

DANCE AND DIGITAL ARTS
Why do I dance ?
Panorama of different artistic collaborations, from « couples » of choreographers to creations involving musicians or plasticians
Meeting with literature
Collaboration between a choreographer and a writer can lead to the emergence of a large number of combinations. If sometimes the choreographer creates his dance around the work of an author, the writer can also choose dance as the subject of his text.
Dance and performance

Female / male
A walk between different conceptions and receptions of genres in different styles and eras of dance.
Dance and visual arts
Dance and visual arts have often been inspiring for each other and have influenced each other. This Parcours can not address all the forms of their relations; he only tries to show the importance of plastic creation in some choreographies.
Arts of motion
Generally associated with circus arts, here is a Journey that will take you on a stroll through different artists from this world.
This Parcours questions the idea that contemporary dance has multiples techniques. Different shows car reveal or give an idea about the different modes of contemporary dancer’s formations.
