About the show:

Cross & Share delves into the idea of the solo dance “as being many on the stage” by utilizing artistic collaborations around the principle of shared creation. It gives Julie Dossavi the opportunity to open her work up to new spaces, confronting new artistic universes. After composing and interpreting solos and having asked the choregrapher Daniel Larrieu to write a solo for her in 2004 (still actively performed), Julie Dossavi explores a third path, that of co-composition, co-writing with choregraphers, musicians, and a director: Thomas Lebrun, Serge Aimé Coulibaly, Hamid Ben Mahi and Michel Schweizer. This question of dialogues, of exchanges of universes, of languages, of visions is constantly present in Julie Dossavi’s oeuvre.
