Clémentine Télesfort (France) and Lisard Tranis (Catalonia) are two collaborating dance artists based in Barcelona. They have been co-creating artistically since 2019 in research and scenic creation focusing on movement and body expression as a communication tool. Their meeting point lies in the interest of investigating bodily states that lead to the embodiment of images, characters and stories. The common imagination they build starts from the curiosity to explore attention as a dramaturgical instrument, an ode to presence, which leads them to create works where the everyday gives rise to the poetics of the subconscious.

 

Clémentine and Lisard are performers and creators who have worked together since 2017 in different companies such as Guy Nader & Maria Campos and Lali Ayguadé among others. Over the years, they cultivated a common language that led them to start their own artistic path as collaborating choreographers.

Both were part of the VERVE postgraduate company (2015/2016) at the Northern School of Contemporary Dance in Leeds where they both received the 'Outstanding achievement Award' for their year. Before that, Lisard trained at the Institut del Teatre in Barcelona and Clementine at TrinityLaban Conservatoire of Music and Dance in London. Since then, each has continued to work with international choreographers as performers, as well as collaborating with circus artists, videographers, musicians and photographers on collaborative projects and commissions.

 

Their first joint creation, Scotoma (2021), was presented at numerous national and international festivals. And in 2023, they created their first full-length work for theaters, La Mecànica de l'Infortuni. They are regularly invited to teach internationally, at festivals or as guest artists at institutions and in professional trainings. It is through the teaching of their partnering workshop, The Attentive Act, that they investigate and deepen their own physical practice, while continuously expanding their understanding and curiosity for movement.
