NUOVA X welcomes Emilie as our first resident choreographer during our second period.
“Nuova X”, a novel program directed by choreographer Tom Weinberger, in collaboration with NOD
Where: NUOVA X at NOD Via Mantova 34 – Torino Italy
When: Nuova X – 2nd period – January 9th – February 10th
Each quarter, the program will involve a preselected group of dancers in two different creations with two different choreographers, each lasting five weeks .
This structure has the specific objective of providing dancers with the necessary tools to become a more skilled collaborator within a creative context and to develop a flexible mind as well as a creative one.
The program’s emphasis is on giving ample time for a meaningful process, providing the opportunity to dive into and learn from the choreographers’ methodologies and creative practices.
Our goal is to cultivate an environment for a mindful educational journey, creating room to raise questions and space to challenge our physical and performative skills, while encouraging vulnerability and growth. At the end of each trimester a studio showing will be held, giving the participants a platform to share the works in progress with the community.
Emilie is a freelance performer and creator, based in Berlin, Germany.
From 2017-2021 she danced with GöteborgsOperans Danskompani under the artistic direction of Katrín Hall. 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.
