We will open up the creative landscape of our bodies and the space between us.
With a mix of playfulness and curiosity we will focus on the natural weight of the body, the limbs, and how we might impact or disrupt these various parts of ourselves. Finding ways to allow movement to flow continuously through form, moving -with ease- from one place to the next, while opening up our capacity to at any moment redirect, disagreed, or alter the inherent course of our limbs.
With a heavy focus on floor work, improvisation, and our connection to the ground, we will also turn our attention outward to each other through partnering methods and group work.
Our focus being to create a seamless and cohesive connection between ourselves and a group, our body and someone else’s. I’m interested in cultivating a creative exchange among the movers in the space; one can expect to be pushed physically but in a supportive and curious atmosphere. Together, we will create a space that is both focused, light-hearted, and with a strong emphasis on exploration and play.

During this time she originated roles in new works by: Yoann Bourgeois, Paul and Christine Blackman, Sharon Eyal, Club Guy and Roni, Roy Assaf, Marina Mascarell, and Damien Jalet.

Leriche began her career dancing with Hubbard Street Dance Chicago under the direction of Glenn Edgerton; after two years in their second company, she spent another four dancing in the main company prior to moving to Sweden. In recent years she has created work on Scapino Ballet Rotterdam and ISHIDA dance company, and generated her own research alongside her colleagues at GöteborgsOperans Danskompani.

In 2021, her project On Mending (a collaboration with Shawn Fitzgerald Ahern), was selected for Orsolina 28’s “Call for Creation” fellowship where the work was initially developed as a dance for film.

In the summer of 2022, with the support of the Princess Grace Foundation, the work continued its development as a live production in residence at the Baryshnikov Arts Center in New York City.

Her latest work, Well, created for NDT 2 premiered in July of 2022 as a part of Nederlands Dans Theater’s “Up&Coming Choreographers” program.
