We are happy to present the rare opportunity to work on the floor in a masterclass with Aurélien Bory, the director of the WAVES Festival opening performance.

Aurélien Bory directs the Compagnie 111, founded in 2000 and located in Toulouse. He has developed a “physical theatre”, a crossbreeding between different, converging fields in the performing arts theater, circus, dance, visual arts and music.

His shows have toured all around the world and his international fame began with Plan B (2003) and Plus ou moins l’infini (2005) created in collaboration with Phil Soltanoff.

Aurélien Bory never ceases to challenge space through movement. And vice versa. Objects and bodies endure the mechanical laws of the space as much as they reveal it, bend it, distort it. A true craftsman of the stage, he uses and often melts together its various languages, every single genre, from the burlesque to the tragic, and all the skills at his disposal, from traditional tools to new technologies. In addition to his own creations, he has also directed two operas.

The masterclass will focus on Aurelién Bory’s approach to physical theatre and give an insight in the training behind the unique artistic language on stage.

Presented in collaboration with The Danish National School of Performing Arts Further Education (DDSKS – Efteruddannelsen).
