Artist invited in 2013
Dancer and choreographer
Robyn Orlin is a world-renowned South-African dancer and choreographer who shows, through her art, the difficult and complex situation of her country. She works with several means of artistic expression (text, video, fine arts...), in order to explore the theatricality that is reflected in her choreographic vocabulary.
Nicknamed "a permanent irritation" in her home country, Robyn Orlin always developed an innovative work on aesthetics and politics. She developed a unique method to work both with her dancers and the audience : this method constantly reconsiders the traditionnal roles of performers and spectators.
For the Labex Arts-H2H, she will stage On hour with Robyn Orlin.
