CN D Pantin

For the two weeks of Camping, the Studio 12 of the CN D is being transformed into an ephemeral studio where dance enthusiasts can attend a workshop led by six guest choreogra-phers free of charge. A unique opportunity for members ot the public to dance with internation-ally famous choreographers!

The choreographer and dancer Ayelen Parolin lives and works in Brussels. Born in Argentina, she arrived in Europe in 2000 and trained at the CCN de Montpellier in the E.x.e.r.ce programme. As a performer, she has worked with Mathilde Monnier, Jean-Francois Peyret, Alexandra Bachzetsis and Louise Vanneste. In 2003, she started working on choreographic composition. From her autobiographical solo 25.06.76 to the group piece WEG (2019) and the trio SIMPLE (2021), she has created some twenty pieces, including DAVID (2011), Hérétiques (2014), Nativos (2016) and Autoctonos (2017). A choreographer with a protean oeuvre, she navigates between several universes and aesthetics, constantly seeking to explore different aspects of herself and to probe what connects us to others. She has created pieces for the KNCDC - Korea National Contemporary Dance Company (2016), the Ballet National de Marseille (2017), and Carte Blanche - Norwegian National Company of Contemporary Dance (2019). She has received the SACD prize for her body of work (2016), the Critics’ Prize for Nativos (2017) and in 2017 became a fellow of the Pina Bausch Foundation. Since 2022, she has been an associate artist of the Théâtre national Wallonie-Bruxelles.
