Artistic approach :
From the foundation of the Asbl Parcours in 1992, the choreographic poetry of Félicette Chazerand has been constantly feeding off different forms of contemporary and experimental dance : the meaningful body of the dancer, its rhythmic architecture, the improvise when in contact with other bodies and the surrounding environment being the inspiration of her thoughts and creations. The tragic-comic look at the body in permanent change, where the poetry engages in a dialectic with humour, has brought her closer and closer to Young Audiences and to think about the pedagogy of motion in workshops in schools in urban areas. The audacity of her approach results from her permanent research where creation, training and exchange between the professionals and the different audiences are constant. Motion teacher at the Institute of Media Arts (IAD) in Louvain-la-Neuve.
