Xavier Le Roy, “Floor Pieces“, 9 January 2010, 7 p.m., performance, NUMBER THREE: HERE AND NOW, JULIA STOSCHEK COLLECTION, Duesseldorf

The fragmentation of the body, in terms of perception and the identity of the dancing individual is the main focus in Xavier Le Roy's dance and performance pieces. Le Roy initially studied biochemistry at Montpellier University, obtaining a PhD in molecular and cell biology in 1990. During his studies he started taking classes in contemporary dance with Ruth Barnes and Anne Koren. A series of very diverse projects followed, including collaborations with the Berlin performance group detektor and the founding of le kwatt together with the musicologist Alexander Birntraum and lighting designer Sylvie Garot. In 1999 he teamed up with Petra Roggel to found in situ productions and has invited a series of choreographers and dancers such as Yvonne Rainer and Jérôme Bel, video artists and theoreticians to collaborate on his E.X.T.E.N.S.I.O.N.S. project. For NUMBER THREE: HERE AND NOW he will perform his new project “floor pieces“.
