albane aubry

Albane Aubry was born in Paris in 1974 and grew up in a family environment that introduced her at an early age to theatre and contemporary dance. At the age of 19 she attended the School of Fine Arts in Nantes, with the plan to specialise in scenography. Ultimately, these wide-ranging experiences in the visual arts, along with her dance practice and the influence of ‘poor theatre’, brought her to place notions tied to the body, presence, the imaginary, mental images and space at the core of her art practice (video/filmed actions, photography, painting, drawing…). Her desire to develop her skills and further her experience prompted her to attend dancing lessons on a daily basis. In 1999 she was awarded her DNSEP . In Paris, she pursued her approach to movement by attending short courses in Release Technique, Instant Composition, Somatic Education and Movement Analysis. In 2001, she enrolled in the contemporary dance training programme EX.E.R.CE at the Centre Chorégraphique National in Montpellier.
She has since performed in choreographic or performance projects with Laurent Pichaud, Marie Reinert, Rémy Héritier, Geisha Fontaine and Pierre Cottreau, Le Clubdes5/Maeva Cunci, Mickaël Phelippeau, and on projects also involving text and speech with Ivana Muller and Nils De Coster. She also works as an artistic collaborator, assistant or outsider’s eye with Emmanuelle Huynh, Marie Reinert, Mickaël Phelippeau, Fanni Futterknecht, Aude Lachaise, Johann Maheut, and Ivana Muller. From time to time she collaborates with actors for specific corporeal work and has also worked as an assistant director in theatre productions. Since 2002 she has taken part in art residencies initiated by Rémy Héritier: Campagne(s)?, with Ondine Cloez, Virginie Thomas: Old School, and with Maeva Cunci. She has recently been involved in collaborative performance projects using speech, drawing, reading, walking and dance, namely with Maeva Cunci for Imageries, and Virginie Thomas, Mathias Poisson and Yasmine Youssef for the Bibliothèque Sauvage… She has also been pursuing solo projects (in video, painting, drawing, installation and sound work), which continue to be marked by a concern with the body, space, landscape, the imaginary, movement and language.
Her need for alternation and dislocation, her boundless curiosity and keen interest in different art forms prompts her to seek out a form of circulation and porousness between the various practices she engages with.
