    Emilie Leriche

    Emilie Leriche

    Contemporary

    Biography:

    Emilie Leriche is a freelance dancer and creator, based in Paris, France. From 2017-2021 she danced with GöteborgsOperans Danskompani under the artistic direction of Katrín Hall. During this time she originated roles in new works by: Yoann Bourgeois, Paul and Christine Blackman, Sharon Eyal, Club Guy and Roni, Roy Assaf, Marina Mascarell, and Damien Jalet.

    Leriche began her career dancing with Hubbard Street Dance Chicago under the direction of Glenn Edgerton; after two years in their second company, she spent another four dancing in the main company prior to moving to Sweden. Over recent years, she has felt herself drawn towards creation, towards the tender place we go as artists when we decide to build and explore something new. She has created work on Scapino Ballet Rotterdam, and generated her own research alongside her colleagues at GöteborgsOperans Danskompani.

    In 2021 her project, On Mending (a collaboration with Shawn Fitzgerald Ahern), was selected for Orsolina 28’s “Call for Creation” fellowship. With the support of the Princess Grace Foundation, in 2022 the work will continue its development in residency at the Baryshnikov Arts Center in New York City. She is commissioned by NDT II to create a new work for the company in the summer of 2022.

    Class Description:



    Emilie Leriche’s class is structured from the ground up. Starting on the floor, meeting gravity, introducing movement by way of exploring one’s connection to the ground, the class involves a mixture of floor and phrase work paired with improvisation. With a mix of playfulness and curiosity the class will focus on the weight of the body, the limbs, and allowing movement to flow continuously through form, moving -with ease- from one place to the next.
