Compagnie 111-Corps Noir

In Corps Noir, Aurélien Bory captures the energy of a dancer to the canvas in a fascinating way. Dancer’s body heat leaves a temporary imprint and fades away again. Unique expression and one-off work transforms perceptions of dance and time. Corps Noir combines dance, technology and visual arts as an fantastic ensemble.

Aurélien Bory attended Physics courses at the University of Strasbourg. These studies took him to work in the field of Architectural Acoustics. In 1995, he got in the creation studio of the Lido, Centre des arts du cirque in Toulouse. The artist Mladen Materic whom he met at Théâtre Garonne, introduced him to the acting craft. From 1998 to 2000, Bory joined Materic’s theater group, Théâtre Tatoo, as an actor for the play L’Odyssée.

In 2000, he founded Compagnie 111 in Toulouse. He develops a « physical theater » singular and hybrid, a crossbreeding of different, converging circus, dance, visual art, and music. Intrigued by the question of space, his composite works that reflect a peculiar aesthetic are driven by sciences, and strongly rely on the scenography. Alternately scenographer, director, choreographer or even plastician, he conceives his artwork as a renewal of itself.
