Alix Eynaudi, mother of two, lives and works in Vienna.
Alix 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 in which she puts the audience to sleep. Then comes Monique (2012), a dance duet with Mark Lorimer which finds its inspiration in bondage, in 2015 Edelweiss, a danced rebus that oscillates between abstract and figurative art. In 2017 Chesterfield is born. Chesterfield is a dance that tends towards the infinitely soft.
She is currently working on Noa & Snow, a choreographic salon. The first session happened in November 2018 at the Volkskundemuseum in Vienna, in collaboration with brut Wien and in the frame of Wien Modern. As of 2019, Alix is a grantee of the Austrian Science Fund (FWF) art-based research program, Peek, for the coming development of Noa & Snow the next 2 years.
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, Anne Juren, Boris Charmatz, Jennifer Lacey.
Alix’s artistic practice also involves teaching workshops a.o.in PARTS, Brussels, ImPulsTanz, Vienna, la HEAD, Geneva, La Manufacture, Lausanne.
