Alix Eynaudi lives and works in Vienna.
She was trained as a ballet dancer in the Opéra of Paris. She worked in various ballet companies before entering PARTS when the school first opened. In 1996, Alix joined Anne-Teresa De Keersmaeker’s company Rosas where she worked for 7 years.
Since 2005 Alix has been creating her own pieces: Crystalll, in collaboration with Alice Chauchat (2005), Supernaturel (2007), Long Long Short Long Short (2009), in collaboration with Agata Maszkiewicz. In 2011, she leads, together with Kris Verdonck, an artistic research on sleep which turns into Exit (2011), a solo still touring to this date in which she puts the audience to sleep. Then comes Monique (2012), a dance duet with Mark Lorimer which finds its inspiration in bondage and in 2015 Edelweiss, a danced rebus that oscillates between abstract and figurative art. In 2017 Chesterfield is born. Chesterfield results from applying a collection of leather manipulation techniques to bodies and wares, it develops a maze of signs where dance tends towards the infinitely soft, infused with irreverence and affection.
She is currently working on Noa & Snow: Noa & Snow offers a space in which choreographic occurrences become intertwined with writing: a poetry studio, a studio to be poetically inhabited. The first session will happen on the 10th of November 2018 at the Volkskundemuseum in Vienna, in collaboration with Brut Wien and in the frame of Wien Modern.
Besides creating her own work, Alix continues to develop projects with other artists, both as a collaborator and a performer. She takes part in pieces by Superamas, Kris Verdonck, Anne Juren, Boris Charmatz, Jennifer Lacey.
Alix’s artistic practice also involves teaching workshops a.o.in PARTS, Brussels, ImPulsTanz, Vienna, Panetta Movement Centre, New York, HEAD, Geneva, La Manufacture, Lausanne.
