dance performance BE premiere
FR 03.11.2017 20:30 - 21:30 BE premiere

It starts with a collection of non-professional dance videos found on the internet. They are called Danses Glocales. The collection has become a Conversation between Elie Ortis and Anne Lise le Gac.

Most of the time, it happens "online", because Elie lives in Paris and Anne Lise in Marseille. This conversation is called Grand Mal and is endless. Material is gathered with joy / shamelessly and the conversation is set to be shared with an audience, from time to time.

You are with two solitudes. The Essays by Montaigne came into play and the music by Gigi d’Agostino became obvious. Grand mal is a conversation, a toolbox, a wall, an attitude.


Anne Lise Le Gac has a background in the visual arts, but today she especially makes performative art. In 2015 together with Élise Carron, she was the motor behind the festival OKAY CONFIANCE at Marseille. Élie Ortis is tailor and clubber.
