Can you introduce yourself and your work as a choreographer?
Hello, I am Félicia a french dancer and young choreographer living in Paris. I have mainly co-created urban choreographies for contests using a mix of hip hop, jazz/contemporary, salsa and waacking.
You decided to attend the international intensive program of La Fabrique de la Danse last year, what were you expecting?
At the moment, I have the idea of creating my own show and my own company. I did not have any knowledge on the side of how to create a choreography. So I was expecting to get some diverse tools for developing my project.
Can you tell us about your experience there with choreographers from other countries?
It was so great, I loved the multi-cultural part of this program. It made my experience richer from other ways of thinking and creating.
A few months later, what did you retain from it and how did it help your projects abroad?
I am still reflecting on how to realise my project and how it will be formed. A lot of details are taking shape little by little. The tools and information have helped me to get a great insight about what to do, where to start and how to structure my project.
Who would you recommend this summer intensive to?
I would definitively recommend this summer intensive to all the choreographers (with or without experience) because it’s given me such a great understanding about how my work is involved in the process.
