The organization Os was created in Paris in the autumn of 2005 to provide support to three dancers – Monia Bazzani, Carla Bottiglieri and Gaëlle Bourges – who were examining the concept of « self-image » and the image of gestures while studying in the Dance Department at the University of Paris VIII. They were willing to cross constellations that were simultaneously aesthetic, clinical and political.
From that point, Os has always drawn on its resources not only in the field of dance but also in somatic methods developed over the past fifty years and today at the forefront of dance education, such as Body-Mind Centering.
The areas of investment are therefore making performances, embodying different dance methods and using movement analysis as a field capable of redefining the relationship of the body with itself, with other bodies, with space, and composing a paradigm that is always moving.
Os has been supporting Gaëlle Bourges’s choreographic work since 2009.
Gaëlle Bourges is a performer associated with the Théâtre de la Ville in Paris; L’échangeur – CDCN Hauts-de-France for three years (2019-2021); partner with Maison de la Culture d’Amiens ; partner with the Manège de Reims for the 2018-2019 season and member of the artists’ collective at the Comédie de Valence until December 2019.
