Between April and June 2017, Angélique Buisson worked with the pupils of the École Lamartine in Saint-Michel-sur-Orge. Making use of different graphic and plastic means (drawing, writing, decoupage, etc.), children invented signs to compose an alphabet of gestures and movements, thereby transcribing a choreography that could be interpreted.

On Saturday 1 July, the dancer Lina Schlageter will interpret these compositions during an afternoon of performances at CAC Brétigny.

The project La forme du mouvement was carried out as part of a “Projet d’éducation artistique et culturelle” (PEAC, Project for Artistic and Cultural Education), which enjoyed the generous support of the Direction of National Education Services of the Department of Essonne.

The artist Angélique Buisson holds a Diplôme national supérieur d'expression plastique (DNSEP), a Master’s degree in art book edition and a postgraduate degree in contemporary art and documents from the École européenne supérieure de l’image in Angoulême. Her work focuses on fragmented chronologies, narrative speculation and shattered plots. Archives and documents are at the heart of her questioning, and in particular the relationship between different documentary forms and memory policies.

    The form of movement, Angélique Buisson


    Between the months of April and June 2017, Angélique Buisson worked with the CE1 and CP/CM1 classes of the École Lamartine in Saint-Michel-sur-Orge. By using different graphic and plastic media (drawing, writing, découpage…), the children invented a range of signs for an alphabet featuring gestures and movements. Using this language, they wrote out the scores for a series of movements, transcribing a choreography that can be performed. Tuesday, 6 June, the children stage a show at the school featuring the results of the research, experiments, and artworks that grew out of the workshops.
