At the end of the workshop “between two images”, the collection of dances filmed with the campers will be revealed to the audience.

Sophie Laly, director and video artist, graduated from the École nationale supérieure des beaux-arts de Dijon in 1998. Her video work deals with the notions of time and space-time by questioning the landscape. She produces her video art projects (installations, documentary films, short formats...) as well as over a hundred recordings of choreographic performances. In contemporary dance, she has collaborated with Emmanuelle Huynh, Rachid Ouramdane, Richard Siegal, Latifa Laâbissi and Christian Rizzo, whom she has assisted on all of his pieces since 2008, including two that she co-designed: neo-fiction (2012) and d’après nature (2018).

As transdisciplinary artist, Christian Rizzo is a choreographer, visual artist, stylist and musician. In the 1990’s, he turned to contemporary dance, initially as a performer. Since then, he has created numerous pieces, perfor-mances and installations, alternating with commissions for opera, fashion and the visual arts. Since 2015, he has been the director of the Centre chorégraphique national de Montpellier – Occitanie, now named ICI (Institut Chorégraphique International).
