Chesterfield with Alix Eynaudi
When working on Chesterfield, Alix Eynaudi and her team were inspired by the collection from the Austrian Museum of Folk Life and Folk Art, where they found Victorian botanical albums, leather objects, masks, and fine engravings on animal skins. Using these elements as building blocks, they created a discipline that literally seeks to be read: Upon arrival, guests receive a magazine which is used as a leitmotif for the evening. Chesterfield uses poetry as a choreographic device, presenting a maze of signs and materials. It weaves a patchwork of movement, sound, bodies, books, fabrics and light, all bound with leather thread and composed to a sensual cadence.
Alix Eynaudi studied ballet at the Opera of Paris and dance at PARTS (Performing Arts Research and Training Studios) in Brussels. She was a member of the PARTS dance troupe, Rosas, for seven years and has also performed with Boris Charmatz and Kris Verdonck, among others. She has previously appeared at the Kaaitheater in Brussels, performing original works such as Edelweiss, Monique, and Long Long Short Long Short (a collaboration with Agata Maszkiewicz).
