ABOUT JILL CROVISIER

Jill Crovisier is an award-winning multidisciplinary artist born in 1987 in Luxembourg. She graduated in ballet and contemporary dance from the Conservatory of Esch-sur-Alzette (LU) and continued her studies in China, France, the United States, Indonesia, and Israel. Jill has been working as a professional dancer since 2007, and as a choreographer, videographer, and sound creator since 2013. She also holds a degree in dance pedagogy. Jill’s artistic approach is based on personal experience, observation, and a strong connection to society and people. She is passionate about exploring the intersections between choreographic writing, sound design, and cultural exchange collaborations. Jill’s work emphasises authenticity and realism, using dance to communicate stories about life and identity. She places a strong emphasis on creating work that is inclusive and emotionally engaging, even for those who may not be familiar with contemporary dance. Jill has participated in choreographic competitions such as Hanover, Copenhagen, Stuttgart, Masdanza and was selected at Lucky Trimmer. She won the Luxembourgish Dance Award in 2019 and the PEARLS prize for her short film NILYNDA. In 2021, she created a dance piece (Tanzabend) for the Folkwang Universität der Künste in Essen (DE) among others. Jill continues to collaborate worldwide with different institutions, dance companies, young ballets, and universities while remaining an active freelance performer. Her involvement in dance therapeutic projects and creations contributes to expanding the potency of dance to a larger audience. Her dance company JC Movement Production – Jill Crovisier, created in 2013, is funded by the Ministry of Culture Luxembourg.

WORKSHOP DESCRIPTIONS

Theatrical storytelling in dance

Jill Crovisier offers the participants a moment of exploration around theatrical storytelling, which aims to gain a deeper understanding of the theatrical application of physicality and its transformative potential in performing arts. While playing with physical and narrative skills, each participant will work on enhancing their ability to connect emotions, sensations, images and movement. The choreographer will share some of her practices to guide the participants in a personal research around character works and theatrical storytelling in dance.

Intuition in dance composition

The workshop will focus on an intuitive approach to improvisation and choreography. Jill Crovisier would like to explore, together with the participants of the workshop, how to balance intuition and conceptual elements when it comes to short creation processes. Each participant will be guided to play with different elements and tasks while making quick and clear decisions in the patterns that are taken. This workshop will improve our improvisation cleverness and widen our perspectives in composition.
