Anomalia was born in Paris by the meeting of two dancers and aerial acrobats: Solène Tran and Alice Delva.
We mix aerial dance and experimental music, which allows us to develop new and unique dynamics of our company.
We rely on the influence of electronic music to search for a new gestural vocabulary.
Indeed, in the 70s, composers use pre-existing music samples in electronic machines. This allows composers to recreate the music from this time.
It is in this spirit that our choreographies use acrobatic body language punctuated by the softness and expressiveness of dance, in contrast or in accordance with the energy of electronic music. And so by following the same process with electronic music, we are able to transfer dance from the ground, into the air.
Aerial dance allows you to leave the grounded reality and ascend into a dream.
During aerial dance the body loses its bearings and must reorient itself into a new space, thereby nourishing a new gestural vocabulary. This allowed us to see things as a new point of view and to find a different sensitivity.
Thus, we use unusual spaces to create a dialogue with architecture. Giving a new look and use to the spaces that we thought familiar.
Our artistic universe conveys different adaptations by using multiple aerial supports: wall dance, suspended in the air, with pulleys or bungee elastics.
