IMPROVISATION TECHNOLOGIES - workshop with Cyril Baldy and Tilman O’Donnell

The workshop

Between 2005-2015 The Forsythe Company produced a number of unique works under the direction of William Forsythe. In the latter stages of Forsythe’s directorship, the modalities developed during Ballet Frankfurt were further extended to create a new autonomous language of action and perception.

Utilizing the movement phrases from the work “N.N.N.N” as a basis for investigating this language, Cyril Baldy and Tilman O´Donnell (both former members of the The Forsythe Company) will lead a workshop that attempts to dialogue with and bend the rules of how structure, form, sound and movement are conceived of in choreographic praxis.

Note! The workshop is in collaboration with the Contemporary Dance Education at The Danish National School of Performing Arts.

Cyril Baldy

Born in France, Cyril Baldy studied ballet in Paris at The Conservatoire National Supérieur. He worked with the Jeune Ballet de France, Nederland Dans Theatre II, Nederland Dans Theatre I and Frankfurt Ballet before being part of The Forsythe Company from 2005 to 2014. Since 2014, along side conducting workshops in international institutions, developing choreographic works and staging William Forsythe repertoire, he co-created his own art direction company named Sad.

Tilman O´Donnell

Tilman O’Donnell was born in the USA to a German mother and American father, and received his training at the National Ballet School in Toronto, Canada. He joined The Göteborg Ballet under the direction of Anders Hellström in 2001. In 2002 Tilman danced at Staatstheater Saarbrücken, and thereafter joined the Cullberg Ballet from 2003 until 2007. He was a member of The Forsythe Company in Frankfurt from 2007- 2012, and a guest artist until June 2015.

Tilman made his debut as a choreographer in 2002 and has been awarded first prize in two major international choreographic competitions. In 2005 he was appointed both ”Dancer To Watch” and ”Choreographer To Watch” by the leading European magazine Ballet Tanz. In 2011 he created two site-specific works for Cullberg Ballet in Stockholm. In 2012 he created the piece August did not have what is commonly considered good taste as far as furniture is concerned. He has also created works for SPIRA Jönköping/Cullberg To Come, Staatstheater Graz and The Göteborgs Operans Danskompani, including the most recent work Whatever Singularity #453: Solo For Maxime / Dancing With Alain.

In 2014 Tilman was invited to be artist in residence for two months by the Goethe Institut in Montreal, Canada, together with Cyril Baldy. His most recent work is titled In Life & Love & So On and was created for Corpus/The Royal Danish Ballet. He was recently nominated as “Hoffnungsträger” by the prominent European dance journal Tanz.
