Yasmine Hugonnet is a Swiss dancer and choreographer. After graduating from the Conservatoire National Supérieur de Musique et de Danse de Paris, she created her company Arts mouvementés in 2009 in Lausanne. Her work focuses on the relationship between form, image and sensation, on the (de)construction of choreographic language, on processes of embodiment and appropriation. She has created several solos: Le Rituel des fausses fleurs (2013), La Traversée des langues (2015) and Le Récital des postures (2014), winner of the Swiss Dance Prize and of the Swiss selection in Avignon in 2017. In 2016, she created La Ronde-quatuor, followed by Se sentir vivant, in which she developed the ventriloquism work begun in Le Récital des postures (2017). Supported by the Théâtre de Vidy in Lausanne since 2017, she is presenting Chro no lo gi cal (2018), Extensions (2019), Seven Winters (2020), La Peau de l’espace (2021).

Articulating what moves between the visible and the invisible
“Deciding not to move the body or any of its parts is a powerful act, which suspends the visible and provokes, through this act of physical resistance, a different dynamic activity, like a response from the body and the mind. It is in this dialogue between production and reception, between the visible and the invisible, that I wish to invite you to experience. The tools I use to do this are: immobile speech (a form of ventriloquism); posture (a formal, expressive, psychological situation, a legacy of the history and representations of the human body); movement (visible movement and invisible movement); duration; the heterogeneous body (the body questioned in the polarities of visible-invisible or passive-active, and the hierarchisation of its parts).” Yasmine Hugonnet
