Choreographers and performers Romane Peytavin and Pierre Piton, founded La PP in 2018 and met at La Manufacture – High School of Performing Arts in Lausanne being part of the first dance Bachelor of Switzerland. In 2016, they created Capillotractée which was presented at the Quarts d’Heure de Sévelin in Lausanne and was a finalist of the Danse Élargie at the Théâtre de la Ville in Paris.
For 2018/19 the company were associate artists at l’Abri, Geneva, in which time they developed the duet Dédicace; a one-to-one performance showed during the festival Antigel in February 2019. This led to the presentation of Farewell Body at l’Arsenic Lausanne in May 2019. Farewell Body was recently selected to be part of the Swiss Dance Days 2021, international platform for the promotion of the Swiss choreographic arts.
La PP’s work revolves around improvised physical tasks in order to create ironic works that are accessible to all. It experiments through a hybrid body and offers constantly redefined practices where the public takes an essential part.
