Cyril Baldy

Cyril Baldy danced with The Forsythe Company (Germany) from 2005 - 2014.

Cyril originally studied dance at the Conservatoire National Superieur, Paris (1993 - 1997).

 

He has also worked as a dancer with:

  • The Jeune Ballet de France (1997 - 1998)
  • Nederlands Dans Theater (NDT) II  (1998 - 2001)

Cyril leads STRUT's two week Forsythe Master Workshop in November 2015.

This Forsythe Master Workshop at STRUT focuses on repertoire and choreographic principles from William Forsythe's work One Flat Thing, reproduced.

 

Other projects Cyril has worked on recently include:

Working with Forsythe dancer Yoko Ando at the Yamaguchi Center for Arts and Media (YCAM) on the RAM (Reactor for Awareness in Motion) project:

"RAM considers dancers as agents, with evolving imaginations, that seek information from their surrounding environments, rather than simply repeating movements predetermined by a choreographer. The aim of the project is to provide dancers with a tool to activate their perceptions and thoughts, a reactive device. More concretely, RAM’s computer software and hardware generates inspiring virtual environments for dancers. And once they start moving in response, the software reciprocally produces a new environment. The dancers and RAM become interrelated."  - http://interlab.ycam.jp/en/projects/ram/about_ram
