Residency of choreographer Aloun Marchal for creation of new sound and dance show called “Inner Weather”. Residency in collaboration with Kultur i Väst.
After critically acclaimed Bibi Ha Bibi, Aloun Marchal is back as a choreographer. If you experienced the show you know how the grotesque and absurd can be turned into beauty. This time with four women on stage. The outcome is a rythmical show were the boundaries between dance and concert are dissolved.
Inner Weather is a show for four female dancers with wireless microphones, also, soundscape and choreography are performed live on stage. The wireless microphones are used to amplify the sounds of the body – bodies bouncing, voices humming along with singing, breath and steps. The sounds focus and reveal the inner driving force of the performance, both in interactions and solo dancing.
Aloun Marchal (SE/FR) – choreographer and project leader
Aloun Marchal started dancing when he understood that thinking was not enough, since then he is fascinated by moments that don’t make sense yet, but eventually will. His choreographic work is about exploring his fascination with the human condition. The human as a thinking animal that lives in the present, often in a vertical situation, creates societies, is in motion, sounds and creates collective and individual imaginary objects. This has led him to create contemporary dance performances where a wide range of movements, vocalizations and conversations are interwoven. For each show, a specific universe and vocabulary have been created.
Aloun is an improviser, dancer and choreographer. A french artist living in Gothenburg, Sweden, and Paris, France. He received the Danceweb grant in 2008 and 2012. In 2010, he was awarded the second prize of the Dance competition, “Danse Elargie” that took place in théatre de la ville, for the creation of “Gerro, Minos and Him” in collaboration with Roger Sala Reyner and Simon Tanguy. In 2013, “Gerro, Minos and Him” was awarded the best dance piece award at the Stuttgarter Tanz-und Teaterpreis festival. In 2017, he received the innovative choreographic grant from SACD for the creation of Bibi Ha Bibi.
He is currently touring three of his creations : “Bibi Ha Bibi”, “Gerro, Minos and Him” and “Trippel”. As a performer, Aloun is touring with “More than naked”, a massively naked show choreographed by the Austrian artist Doris Uhlich, the last shows of the integrated dance company SPINN and “L’Age d’or” choreographed by Eric Minh Cuong Castaing.
