La compagnie de Fractus V (Eastman / Sidi Larbi Cherkaoui) comme foyer de régénération pour les interprètes : récit écologique et micropolitique d'un travail de terrain mené au fil de la création et de la tournée d’une création chorégraphique (2015-2018)

Abstract : This research developed from fieldwork conducted with the performers of the choreographic worked entitled “Fractus V” by the Eastman/Sidi Larbi company between June 2015 and May 2018. The narrative that unfolds from this fieldwork between Barcelona and Antwerp and thereafter along many roads of Europe revolves around the following questions: To what extent does the choreographic process and the tour of the performance constitute regenerative experiences for the performers involved? How are rites of passage understood? “Fractus V” is motivated by a choreographer’s desire for a renewal and cross-fertilizations shared by nine performers of different choreographic and musical cultures. The dancers include Sidi Larbi, Dimitri Jourde, Johnny Lloyd, Fabian Thomé Duten and Patrick ' Twoface ' Williams Seebacher; and musicians Soumik Datta, Kaspy N’Dia, Woojae Park and Shogo Yoshii. Their modus operandi is twofold: the performers learn each others’ dances and then try together to devise collectively. Not without difficulties, the nascent company gradually sketches out the contours of a creative policy embracing the necessity of “commoning” and differentiation. The thesis asks how do you create a polyphonic company respecting one’s idiosyncratic way of moving while not merely creating an assemblage of difference amongst each other? This thesis includes interviews conducted with the performers, as they evolve over the duration of rehearsals and touring. To this end, it develops an ethnographic, ecological and micropolitical approach analyzing the trajectories and transformations of the performers with Tim Ingold’s and François Laplantine’s anthropological approaches, the philosophy of affect of Brian Massumi and Frédéric Lordon, the ontogenetic philosophy of Gilbert Simondon, as well as the poetic studies in contemporary dance. The combination of the “Fractus V” fieldwork and the theoretical discourse mentioned above both contribute to the notion that the regenerative underpins the performer’s ecological approach of becoming through and with collaborative choreographic devising.
