After studying physics, architectural acoustics and circus arts, Aurélien Bory became interested in the relationship between bodies and the moving space.

With his Compagnie 111, he has created more than a dozen pieces that have all been successes on the international scene. He also runs several projects in collaboration with artists from different backgrounds. In Shantala Shivalingappa, Aurélien Bory has found Shiva, the Hindu god of dance, a god too of carnage who destroys as much as he rebuilds. In this performer of kuchipudi, a traditional style from southern India, he recognises one of the female incarnations of the choreographic art to which he has been dedicating portraits on stage for ten years. “She was born surrounded by dance” dreams the director who makes
her crackle like a black flame in a landscape of darkness, crumpled paper and ash.

At each moment and in each gesture, Shantala’s dance is about life and death, epiphany, disappearance and traces,
all inextricably combined.
