French-born Philippe Blanchard has created both independent and commissioned performances at the forefront of Swedish contemporary dance and the European dance companies for nearly twenty years. His works developing into installation-like studies with skilled performers and untrained performers. Suggesting rather than telling, Blanchard’s finely layered pieces address the creative potential of each viewer by making room for interpretation, uncertainty and wonder while consistently providing subtle details to rely on.
An adventurous artist daring to explore unknown subjects and methods, he develops his expression in a continual process of investigation where every project is bound to its own rules while moving consciously forward from the previous one.
After creating works such as “Airbag”, “Noodles”, “Quiproquo”, “One’s company, “How about you?” which toured in more then 14 countries, Philippe decided to relocated himself in U.K where he created two works ” This is that” and ” There are no such thing such as silly things”.
