Coproduction 2024

Since 2019, HAUT and workspacebrussels have been exchanging ideas, practices and residencies between Copenhagen and Brussels. In April 2024, HAUT will welcome Stanley Ollivier and Mamadou Wague, with whom workspacebrussels is collaborating on the Spine of Desire project.

HAUT - An Hour With Stanley Ollivier & Mamadou Wague 16:9

During this AN HOUR WITH, Stanley Ollivier and his collaborator Mamadou Wagué will reflect on the themes of the choreographic research on intimacy, togetherness, the body and on the creation of a guarded, safe space in the project Spine Of Desire: Wounds without tears, out of one skin in diamonds and shit. The conversation will take the community building power of POC belonging spaces as a starting point in order to reformulate traditional choreographic approaches.

Stanley's artistic practice stems from the belief that a body has infinite possibilities to generate the unexpected and challenge the abstract, imaginative, and perceptive power of the human body. His is interested in physical investigations, including but not limited to movement and look into alternative modes of being, dancing and existing together while questioning notions of normativity and rigidity. His choreographic tools work with dance as a medium for creating shifty spaces of ambivalence and fantasy, swinging between fragments and fullness, deconstruction and construction, optimism and doubt.

At the moment some of the leading interests in his work are discovering new physical narratives and openings for a conscious innocence, while diving into practice of the crushing, joyful and persistent body.
