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 still touring to this date in which she puts the audience to sleep. Then comes Monique (2012), a dance duet with Mark Lorimer which finds its inspiration in bondage, in 2015 Edelweiss, a danced rebus that oscillates between abstract and figurative art and in 2017 Chesterfield. She is currently working on Noa & Snow, a space in which choreographic occurrences become intertwined with writing: a poetry studio, a studio to be poetically inhabited in Vienna. Besides creating her own work, Eynaudi takes part in pieces by Superamas, Kris Verdonck, Anne Juren, Boris Charmatz, Jennifer Lacey.
Alix’s artistic practice also involves teaching workshops a.o. in PARTS (Brussels), ImPulsTanz (Vienna), Panetta Movement Centre (New York), HEAD (Geneva), La Manufacture (Lausanne).
Workshop: FRIENDS IN ACTION
We all know how to dance. We’re all experts in friendship.
We will practice friendship as a form of solidarity, a way of committing ourselves with The Things.
We’ll look at dance as a liberating act and an act of faith, and at our body as a place of social responsibility.
We’ll look at our co-workers, colleagues, friends-in-dance as friends.
This work works in pairs, we’ll shift role. And clothes. And smells.
We’ll literally look at the expertise that we gather. And displace it.
Make way for imagination and civility!
