About the Company

After many years studying music at the conservatoire, Jann Gallois started dancing in 2004. It was Thony Maskot, a mainstay of the French hip-hop scene, who introduced her to what was to become her passion. At the same time, to widen her skills, Jann trained as a contemporary dancer at the Peter Goss School.   In 2012, Jann Gallois embarked upon choreographing and, together with Damien Guillemin, she created Nager dans ses rêves a duet supported by Luc Petton and the« Laboratoire Choréographique de Reims ». The success of that piece encouraged her to set up her own company, Cie BurnOut, and to write her first own solo piece, P=mg, for which she was 9 times awarded by national and international prizes.

About the Piece

After two solos works, P=mg and Diagnostic F20.9, I wanted to confront myself to the exercise of the duet in order to explore this time how two can become one, and how a solo can be born from a duet. By focusing my research exclusively, on a physical and corporal work, my intention for this creation is to limit myself on only one restriction : permanent contact.

The obsession of contact, whether real or virtual, takes more and more space in our daily lives through the exponential growth of means of communication and through social networks. It evolves, maybe, at the prejudice of another form of contact, the one of the soul. This spiritual contact between two souls, masculine and feminine, symbolized by a physical contact between two masses, two matters, two bodies which parts are so closely linked that they hardly separate, then would become more (or less!) compact.
