Antonin Rioche

former dancer with olivier dubois / sidi larbi cherkaoui / sasha waltz | choreographer for funny people



it always begins with an invitation to calm the mind and still the body through breathing exercises, yoga, and meditation. These tools are designed to develop clarity of mind in order to connect with the body in a more sensitive way. Together, we will explore how movement can be initiated from within and move outwards, as well as the other way around. As we begin to move through improvisation exercises, I invite the dancers to always remain in circulation and aware of the internal flow already present, breathing and playing with gravity. I want to use weight and connection to the floor to travel between fluidity and stability, which are inseparable from my approach to artistic language. The attention we give to all the characteristics of the human body will allow us to build new ways of experiencing movement.

some workshops offer group improvisation or partnering. these workshops elements may or may not be possible and the teachers and choreographers will modify their workshops accordingly in line with the health and safety measures required at the time. please stay flexible. thank you!

Choreographer and contemporary dancer, based in Den Haag, Antonin Rioche was inspired by his mother's love of dance to take his first classes in modern and contemporary dance. Thanks to his training at the Ballet Junior of Genève, he continued his career as a performer with many international choreographers, such as Olivier Dubois, Sasha Waltz, Theo Clinkard, and Sidi Larbi Cherkaoui. Invited by Cherkaoui during the Eastman Summer Intensive, Antonin created his first piece, Oh Boy!, which later became a short film, selected and awarded in several international film festivals. currently, as an associate choreographer at Korzo, he created The Others, Finally a sign of life, and also Glitter, produced by Korzo and Nederlands Dans Theater and presented at the CaDance festival, in 2021. He is now back on the round to create pieces for schools and companies in Europe.
