Alix Eynaudi lives and works and dances 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 she 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 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. Chesterfield (2017) is a dance that tends towards the infinitely soft.
She is currently working on the development of Noa & Snow, a research project that has been awarded a grant by the Austrian Science Fund (FWF): Peek, an art-based research program, for the next 2 years. 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.
Alix’s artistic practice involves teaching workshops e.g. .at PARTS, Brussels, ImPulsTanz, Vienna, HEAD, Geneva, La Manufacture, Lausanne, as well as organising learning platforms e.g. with KASK (Performance), UGent (S :PAM) and Kunstencentrum BUDA, at Tanzquartier, Vienna, at festival Le Far, Nyon.
Besides creating her own work, Alix continues to develop projects with other artists, both as a collaborator and a performer e.g. Anne Juren, Boris Charmatz, Jennifer Lacey.
My interest lies in art-based social experiments as well as the infinitely soft. I think of my work as a choreographer as the work of a social-event organiser.
