Yasmine Hugonnet: LATITUDE DE POSE
YOU NEVER SEE ME WHERE I SEE MYSELF
The choreographer and dancer of Italian-Swiss parents Yasmine Hugonnet grew up in Mali and France and has worked in Taiwan and Norway. She now lives in Paris. Yasmine Hugonnet studied at the Conservatoire Nationale de Paris. She joined the postgraduate programme entitled Dance Unlimited in Rotterdam.
Yasmine’s connection with Slovenia began with a three month artistic residency, which she used while making the performance Re-play and also her collaboration with Slovene dancers, which continues to this day. In her performances, Yasmine studies a body on the stage (being mainly interested in the notion reconstruction), the gaze and embodiment of the other, a presence, role change… In the Latitude de pose, the subject of her analysis is her own body, which is both projected and also acts as a screen. Yasmine is alone on the stage but audiences do not see only her there.
