Lifeguard // Worldwide premiere at June Events Festival 2016

Lifeguard, a solo creation from and by Benoît Lachambre will be presented on June 2016 17th and 18th at June Events Festival in Paris .


Lifeguard, an intimate stroll of a piece, is the first of a triptych to examine our notions of presence and the resonance of movement. The choreographic action will unfold differently, depending on the space and on perception. It will work best in places that allow performer and spectator to get very close.

A piece that will work to build a very intimate atmosphere, Lifeguard allows for a minute examination of movement, and questions our projections of relationships. With a syncopated choreographic vocabulary and undulating movements, Benoît Lachambre offers a new register for the body’s expression, bringing us along on a search for sensory co-habitation. A subtle connection develops, between the audience and the performer, a mixture of playful trance and vulnerability, and on the stage the body will flow with tangible dexterity.

While examining the role of the artist, the passivity of the spectator and the subtlety of our affect, Lifeguard is an uninhibited discussion about so many aspects of existence.
