Philippe Blanchard

Paradigm and practice of CLEAR


A slow and gentle start for the body after it has been at rest overnight. Sensorial and introspective in its’ approach to thoroughly awakening body, mind and creativity.

Focus and time will be dedicated to discovering and moving through a connection to our skeletal structure, and in turn, to our different bodily systems. As participants, you will be guided continuously throughout your exploration.



French-born Philippe Blanchard has created both independent and commissioned performances at the forefront of Swedish contemporary dance and the European dance companies for nearly twenty years. After creating works such as ”Airbag”, ”Noodles”, ”Quiproquo”, ”One’s company, two’s a crowd” or ”How about you?”, which toured in more then 14 countries, Philippe decided to relocated himself in U.K where he has created two works since 2013 ” This is that” and ” There are no such thing such as silly things”. His works can be categorised as provocative, intense and political. Collaborating with skilled performers and untrained performers depending on the nature of the project, there is a constant debate in his practice on a non performance attitude. Philippe is often invited to University for lectures, classes and workshops in Sweden, U.K, France.
