Alix Eynaudi dances, works and writes between craft & chaos in a (most of the time) joyful mess. She doesn’t work alone; any event, research, invitation is an alibi to spend time with accomplices, a mesh of friendships scintillating under skins, a stirring of a full-of-wonder support. She specializes in (deep) choreographic hanging out sessions.

Alix Eynaudi lives in Vienna. She was trained as a ballet dancer at the Paris Opéra, worked in various ballet companies before entering  PARTS in Brussels when the school first opened. In 1996, Alix joined Anne-Teresa De Keersmaeker’s company Rosas where she worked for 7 years. Since 2005 she has been creating numerous pieces, alone and in collaboration with other artists.

In 2019 Alix received a research grant, PEEK, from the FWF (the Austrian Science Fund) for her project Noa & Snow. This project aimed at exploring the capacities of poetry to ignite imagination across several writing modes and genres in order to shed some light on the possible articulations between performance practices and writing practices. Although concomitant to the pandemic, this project lead to wonderful experiments of collective studies through the sharing of works, (digital) workspaces, as well as to many wonderful leakages of practices with co-researchers Paula Caspão, Quim Pujol and many others basking in dance as a space of study. Parallel to Noa & Snow, a piece was made, together with long term collaborators Mark Lorimer, An Breugelmans, Bruno Pocheron, Cécile Tonizzo, Paul Kotal and Hugo Le Brigand, called BRUNO (2021), a tribute to the light designer Bruno Pocheron.
Recently, Alix started a cycle of collective studies around notions of rest(s): Institute of Rest(s)(2023..). This project is funded by La Manufacture, Haute école des arts de la scène – HES-SO in Lausanne and supported by Tanzquartier Wien , La Grange Center /Arts et Sciences / UNIL Lausanne, Xing Bologna, Le Far Nyon, Tanzfabrik Berlin, Volkskundemuseum Vienna and ImpulsTanz Vienna.

Meanwhile Alix continues developing projects with other artists,  as a collaborator, performer, outside eye, writer: Jennifer Lacey, Anne Juren , Boris Charmatz, Samuel Feldhandler, Sabina Holzer, Litó Walkey, Elizabeth Ward, Jason Dodge, Ujjwal Itkarsh Kanishka, Virginie Bobin, Serena Lee, Paula Caspão, Valentina Desideri among others. Her work has been presented in various international venues and contexts, such as i.e. Kaaitheater, Brussels, Xing, Bologna, Macro Museum, Roma, Biennale di Venezia, Cac Vilnius, Tanzquartier Wien, brut Wien, Le Far, Nyon, Volkskundemuseum Wien, Festowchen.
