Hervé Robbe & Michelle Agnes Magalhaes led a workshop with the campers from June 21 to 25. They invite the public to a presentation of this work, as a part of In Vivo Danse.

Hervé Robbe is a choreographer and dancer. His artistic approach is nourished by and questions the bodily and aesthetic issues of postmodernity in dance and he has enriched his thought through  cultural confrontations, in particular in the USA and Japan. He was the director of the Centre Chorégraphique National du Havre. His work combines choreography with the universe or techniques of architecture, visual arts, videography, sound and technologies. He has created over fifty shows, films and choreographic installations, which have been displayed in France and abroad. Since 2013, he has been the artistic director of the Pôle Création Chorégraphique of the Fondation Royaumont.

Michelle Agnes Magalhaes was born in Brazil. Her music explores the limitations between gesture and writing, improvisation and composition. She started out as a pianist, and studied at the University of Sao Paulo, the Accademia Musicale Chigiana in Sienna and the Conservatoire in Latina. She joined the Analysis of Musical Practice team at Ircam —STMS as part of the project GEMME (Geste musical: modèles et expériences) and pursued postdoctoral research into composition titled “À double entente: l’invention du dialogue écriture – improvisation” [Double meaning: the invention of the writing – improvisation dialogue]. She has worked as a composer with a large number of ensembles.

Created in 1972 by composer Paul Méfano, the 2e2m Ensemble is one of the first French ensembles devoted to musical creation today. With several hundred creations to his credit, he is an essential performer of national and international musical scenes. 2019 marks a new turning point for 2e2m with the appointment of composer and performer Fernando Fiszbein as artistic director, a new artistic direction between continuity, innovation and transversality.
