audrey gaisan doncel

Audrey Gaisan Doncel was born in 1982 and lives in Paris.
She started performing in the early 2000s after training in contemporary dance at the Conservatoire National de Région de Paris and at EX.E.R.CE at the Centre Chorégraphique National in Montpellier.
She has worked with Boris Charmatz, Rémy Héritier, Jennifer Lacey/Nadia Lauro, Alain Michard, Mark Tompkins and Loïc Touzé. Her collaborations with Rémy Héritier, Jennifer Lacey, Barbara Manzetti and Loïc Touzé have had a decisive impact on her artistic parcours.
Since 2009 she has been part of Jeune Fille Orrible, a “lyrical infamy principle” trio with Frédéric Danos and Olivier Nourisson.
She co-wrote the piece I Heart Lygia Clark with Jennifer Lacey and Barbara Manzetti in which they dispense “aesthetical care” to clients/spectators, received individually on appointment. One of the points explored in this piece is beauty therapy’s potential as an artistic practice — at once mystical and absurd. This piece revisits the basic processes put into play in the show Mhmmmm – Lacey/Lauro, and is thus a continuation of the piece Jennifer Lacey created during her residency at the Laboratoires d’Aubervilliers in 2010.
In 2011, she performed in and designed the costumes for Rémy Héritier’s une étendue.
In 2012 she received the “Hors les Murs” grant awarded by the Institut Français for her project How many dogs.
