Alix Eynaudi dances, works, 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. S(up)porting-joints echoing lecture-raps, rapsodies of foils, folle, crowds, assemblies, oscillations; laborating and liberating the texture of the days ensemble, re-assembling the emulsive f/actors, the whips that whip the cream, the ‘undomesticated menagerie’ (misquoted Mark Foster Gage) of inheritances installed inside each other’s presences, chewing and tuning frequencies in and out of their every days. A deep hanging out of sorts.
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: Crystalll (2005)with Alice Chauchat, Supernatural (2008), Long Long Short Long Short with Agata Maszkiewicz, Exit (2011), a solo in which she puts the audience to sleep, a collaboration with kris Verdonck. Then came Monique, Edelweiss, and Chesterfield, a string of pieces made together with for Chesterfield. In the past couple of years, Alix has been asked to curate learning platforms and cartes blanches in various institutions across the field of live arts. She approaches these tasks with a particular attention to the (combination of) infrastructures that make these events possible and the different filters of attending that they offer. She is currently working on Noa & Snow, an art-based research project funded by the Austrian scientific fund, the FWF. Noa & Snow, a gentle experiment between the everyday and the event, aims 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. The research team is composed of As well, it asks the question: “What is being reproduced while making art?”. Alix’s artistic practice involves teaching e.g. .at PARTS, Brussels, ImPulsTanz, Vienna, HEAD, Geneva, La Manufacture, Lausanne, KASK (Performance), UGent (S :PAM), Tanzquartier, Vienna, festival Le Far, Nyon (CH).
