Originally coming from urban dance, Leïla quickly oriented herself towards a mix of practices and developed her work from merging genres that go beyond the conventions and codes from which they are composed.
After having worked as a performed, most notably for Maguy Marin – where she discovered a danced theatricality that remains an important form of possibilities in her own choreographic work – she launched into the creation of her first piece Pode ser.
In this solo (2018), awarded by five international prizes, and performed yet more than 60 times, she flirts freely with contemporary urban dance and theater in an attempt to illustrate the complexity and difficulty of being.
She revisits this theme within the frame of community in her second creation, a duo, C’est toi qu’on adore, expected in january 2020.
Alexandre Fandard is a self-taught free-style hiphop dancer.
After joining the Académie Internationale de la Danse in Paris, he then performed in Brett Bailey’s Exhibit B in Paris, South Korea and Estonia.
In this piece he was asked to become a static element, like in a painting. This experience has
strengthened his taste for the aesthetics of painting.
Discovered by La Cie de Soi, he performed Heroes at the Pantheon.
In September 2016 he was selected as a resident of “Laboratoire des culture urbaines” at the 104 Paris.
In 2018 he created Quelques-uns le demeurent (Some remains so), a work that has been awarded by 4 international prices and that is touring in France and abroad since its creation in 2018.
He works now on a new piece, a duet called « Très loin, à l’horizon », interpreted by he and Leïla Ka and expected in autumn 2020.
