Benoît Lachambre (CA)

Par B.L.eux.

BIOGRAPHY

Active in the dance community since the 1970s, Benoît Lachambre first learned about Releasing in 1985. This kinaesthetic approach to movement and its use of improvisation became an important influence in his choreographic work. He decided to immerse himself in an exploratory approach to movement and its sources, to seek out the authenticity of movement. His work, both as a choreographer and a performer, has at its centre the hyper-awareness of the senses, and the connection between the somatic and the artistic is central to his practice.

He founded his own company in Montréal in 1996, christening it Par B.L.eux, “B.L.” for his own initials and “eux” for the artists he chooses to collaborate with, and who have become central to his artistic process.

Benoît Lachambre is one of the foremost artist-choreographer-performers of his generation. He has created 17 works for his own company since Par B.L.eux was founded, and participated in more than 20 productions by other companies, in addition to some 25 commissioned works.

With the solo, Lifeguard (2016), presented at the June Events Festival in Paris in June 2016, Benoît Lachambre seeks to further deconstruct the notion of the choreographic impulse as well as the redefinition of performer/spectator roles. He affirmed and deepened this desire in Fluid Grounds, a group work, premiered at the TransAmériques Festival in June 2018.
