Sarah Cerneaux

former dancer with Akram Khan Company


moving through instinct

It's about playing with a multitude of dynamics, qualities, energy and exploring all our possibilities. By pushing the contrasts and looking for the oppositions inside and around us, let's discover a new way of moving / expressing ourselves in order to change the vision that everyone has of their own dance. The aim is to let our natural presence emerge in physical constraint and push our limits. How can we use all the knowledge we have stored and at the same time keep challenging them in order to let emerge the singular performer we are. It is through rhythm games, improvisation and physical tasks we will reconnect with our instinct so that each person may find their own way to apprehend the movement. Instinct and intuition will allow us to dive into our creativity. Sarah suggests therefore in her classes to share her experience built through the companies she worked with, as well as her own artistic vision.

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!

Sarah started street dance at the age of 17 in France. After finishing her dance training at the Choreographic centre James Carles, she moved to Paris and kept training with teachers such as Corinne Lanselle and Carolyn Carlson. Since then, she has worked in France and toured internationally with Abou Lagraa Company, David Drouard Company, Maryse Delente Company, Vincent Mantsoé, amongst others. She moved to London in 2014 and started to work with Liz Roche Company in Dublin, with whom she keeps collaborating. She joined Akram Khan Company in November 2014 and toured the production Kaash until 2016. She teaches repertory for the Akram Khan Company and recently re-staged Bastard Amber on the graduating students of Lasalle College Singapore for Liz Roche Company. After moving back to France, Sarah started to work with the Amala Dianor Company and continues to perform in Ireland with Liz Roche Company. Recently, she started to develop her own work. this year, Sarah will dance again with the Akram Khan company and perform Kaash at the South Bank centre.

La face b company

La Face B company wants to be a tool of creation in the service of an cohesive expression, but also an axis of sharing and transmission of its discipline. It is from a need to reveal oneself, to let go of the masks of the perfection, that was born for Sarah Cerneaux, dancer and choreographer, and her desire to create. She, thus, seeks to question what connects us in the intimate, especially in these times when our differences are highlighted, with in the background intentions such as: cultivate multiplicity and singularity, while recognizing our similarities; bring together bodies, voices, expressions and explore various world views, or, more precisely, each of our perceptions; La Face B company draws its roots from a deep and well-anchored desire of releasing the speech through the body. Sarah Cerneaux's first solo, Either way, will be presented in 2022 in Strasbourg, Bari, Toulouse and Metz.
