From the creation of choreographic events, the passing on of special skills acquired during their multiple professional experiences, the acts of mediation with various audiences, to commitment in international cooperation projects… the various activities of the company question each creation process, related to the artistic act and the methods used to share outreach activities with the public.
The founding duo of SINE QUA NON ART is deeply involved in a permanent reflexion about the link between the artistic work and its audience. The aim being to share dance experience with those who, for the time of a performance or an ephemeral encounter, come to see, to feel, to listen or to practice this physical art through space and time, this art of intuition and thought of moving.
Christophe Béranger was a dancer and performer at the “CNN Ballet-de-Lorraine” from 1992 to 2013. His atypical career within the structure has given him the experience and skills to work with more than sixty choreographers. At the same time, he choreographs, he’s involved in many cultural actions and outreach events, leads a professional insertion program and assists choreographers. In 2011, he becomes the artistic coordinator of the company, which he left in 2013.
Jonathan Pranlas-Descours studied visual arts, history of arts, and then theater/directing at the Université d’Aix-Marseille. He continues his journey as a dancer and performer in various companies throughout Europe. Then he enters at P.A.R.T.S (Performing Art Research and Training Studios) in Brussels from 2006 to 2010. He continues his work both as a performer in Belgium, Germany, and France with various choreographers and a choreographer starting his first works.
The methods of choreographic writing used by SINE QUA NON ART results in an interdisciplinary collaborative process that reinvent itself, project after project: each one of those projects offers a new method of collaboration that induces a necessary renewal in the approach of the artistic creation…
The variety of the company’s activities allow to survey the field of crossover between the different ways of creating in the artistic sphere: the presentation of the ways of production and methods of dance works to choreographers from other continents, gives rise in unprecedented collaborative modes, in the creation of ephemeral teams and in strong encounters that share fundamental needs on opening a space for dialogue on intercultural artistic issues.
