En diciembre 2010 se juntan Isabelle Schad (Alemania), Bruno Pocheron (Francia) y Mirella Carbone (Perú) para realizar en un taller con bailarines peruanos un “community project”.
La danza ha sido desde siempre muy importante para los peruanos. Y aunque en el caso de la danza contemporánea, esta todavía es muy joven y fragmentada, ya se destaca por su creatividad y su entusiasmo por lo social. El proyecto de danza alemán-francés-peruano quiere trabajar sobre esta base y abrir espacios de diálogo para el encuentro.

Para realizar su proyecto en el Perú Schad, Pocheron y Carbone han propuesto por eso “Communicare”; un proyecto comunitario que convoca bailarines para trabajar de manera creativa y descubrir a través de los medios de la danza nuevas relaciones entre el cuerpo, sus sistemas corporales y la comunicación. El proyecto consiste en un taller y cuatro funciones, tres en Lima y una en Arequipa. Durante todo el tiempo los bailarines trabajarán con métodos que buscan activar el intercambio y enfocan la colaboración con otros artistas. Las presentaciones tendrán lugar en Lima en tres fechas, en el teatro de la Alianza Francesa. La presentación en Arequipa, será en el teatro del Instituto Cultural Peruano Norteamericano, en cooperación con el Instituto Cultural Peruano Alemán de esa ciudad.

Isabelle Schad es bailarina y coreógrafa alemana y fundó en el 2003, junto con el artista de performance y diseñador de sonidos y luces Bruno Pocheron y Ben Anderson la famosa plataforma berlinesa Good Work.
Mirella Carbone es una de las más conocidas bailarinas y coreógrafas peruanas. En su función como directora y fundadora de la Escuela de Danza Contemporánea de la Pontificia Universidad Católica Perú constantemente ha dado nuevos impulsos a la danza contemporánea en el Perú.

“Communicare” es un proyecto del Goethe-Institut Lima y de la Alianza Francesa Lima en el marco de los eventos de EUNIC-Perú. Socios cooperantes son en Arequipa el Instituto Cultural Peruano Alemán (ICPA) y la Alianza Francesa.

25 NOV. : Reflection in Ljubljana for CoFestival 2021

Thrilled to go on stage again with this group piece after two years.
In the program of the festival the work is beautifully announced:

The website of choreographer Isabelle Schad, who was honoured for her outstanding artistic development in contemporary dance
as part of the German Dance Award in 2019, introduces her work by saying that it focuses on the materiality and processuality of the
body and on its possibility to be experienced. At exactly this intersection, she deals with the relationship between body, choreography and (re)presentation and issues of community building and political engagement. This programme note could hardly summarise more accurately the artistic commitment of this choreographer, who has stripped contemporary dance of its stylistic, formal, compositional and figurative clutter, and theatre dance of its identity specificities, so that bodies do not encounter themselves or others in anything but their very material and human potentiality. Isabelle Schad no longer needs any of the established social rituals, configurations, manners and patterns (of behaviour) that Pina Bausch had delightfully and humorously brutalised in her choreographies. In her trilogy on collective bodies, which she began with the work Collective Jumps (hosted at CoFestival in 2016) and concluded with her performance Reflection, the choreographer is not concerned with the dismantling of social compositions or ideological body trainings, but with the potentiality of
human presences (with the archive of the unrealized), which can only emerge in the form of critical modalities of action when bodies arrive to themselves. Once they enter the realm of difference, into the condition of what they can only become. Perhaps this is why we are so struck by the performances of Isabelle Schad, because, if only for a brief moment, as in Reflection, time is reversed and human bodies are given some perspective, we are suddenly struck by how rare it is to see people in dance performances without the choreographies showing (representing) them. People, with the fragile and unstable fullness of their bodies. When this happens, the political character of dance becomes more apparent, which has to give up (self-)performance in order to find its way to another body.
