CLÉMENT LAYES - cie. PUBLICINPRIVATEPRINT THIS PAGE
Clément Layes attended the professional circus school of Lyon, studied art and philosophy. He studied dance at the Conservatoire National de Région and the Conservatoire National Superieur de Musique et de Danse de Lyon. He worked among others with Boris Charmatz, Odile Duboc and Yval Pick.
In 2003 he started his choreographic research in the collective ALS (as, comme). Since 2008 he works in Berlin and, together with Jasna Vinovrški he funded the company Public in Private.
He develops a method of work that confronts choreography, visual arts and conceptual thinking in a research around daily life objects. This research has led to his solo-work „Allege“ premiered at the Sophiensaele Berlin in 2010 and presented at festivals and venues across Europe. He was awarded by the jury of the 38th Infant Festival (Novi Sad, Serbia), and received a prize in "Jardin d’Europe" 2011. Recent visibility of the method includes "To Allege" (2011) and he is currently working on a duett entitled "The green chair".
The upcoming project "Um-Dinge – Things that surround us" will premiere in 2012 in Sophiensaele Berlin.
Public in Private research, reflects and questions social, political and cultural structures, as well individual position in this structures. By the collaborative approach, Public in Private is aiming at broadening the borders of choreographic language, intriguing different thinking, perceiving and reflecting about own and about other medias. The most relevant aim is however, further developing of choreography as contemporary art form.
