BENEDICTE MOTTART / COMPAGNIE3637PRINT THIS PAGE
At 27, Bénédicte Mottart is a dancer and choreographer. Following her instinct, she chooses this physical art which investigates the emotional and sensorial first before entering the intellectual. She studies notably at The Place, at the London Contemporary Dance School. In search of physical performance, she begins working with Wim Vandekeybus in 2009 (Nieuwzwart, Radical Wrong, Oedipus/Bête Noir). Based in Brussels, she establishes her own company there called Compagnie3637 where she explores dance, theater and work for young audiences (Cortex, Eldorado). Passionate and determined, in her resides an infectious conviction that creates a desire to follow her throughout her projects.
The company was founded in 2008 by two actresses and a dancer : Sophie Linsmaux, Bénédicte Mottart and Coralie Vanderlinden. It dares to be moved by creative energy and not by artistic genres. Intimately connected by their bold work dynamic, wholehearted commitment and a thirst for research, these three artists express themselves through an array of creations--sometimes as collaborators, sometimes each on her own, be it for the stage or for a creative process. Although they have a common approach to the stage, their artistic personalities are nevertheless very different and each work bears an individual, personal signature.
There's dance, theater, and there's dance-theater, puppetry and play, visual theater, performances for adults, for children, for everyone...
For every piece and every topic they investigate, the company strives to create a specific language for the stage fundamentally related to their subject and to the public they're trying to reach. The company chooses to work with artists who are busy with the same questions and nurture that same impatient desire to create and share!
"I believe the theater is a possible site for researching and experiencing what it is to be human, a place where we can say something real and passionate about our current state and the state of the world." J. Pommerat
