Adriana Boriello

is a dancer, choreographer, and pedagogue. She trained at the National Dance Academy and at Maurice Béjart’s school Mudra. In 1986 she founded her first company in France and since then she’s been carrying on her independent activity, which is varied and includes choreography, teaching, and collaborations. She contributed to the foundation of Anne Teresa de Keersmaeker’s Belgian group Rosas and collaborated to the company’s manifesto show Rosas danst Rosas, both creating and performing it. As performer and co-author she has collaborated with Pierre Droulers, with whom she created shows such as Midi-Minuit and Palindrome. With her company, she worked at international productions performed during prestigious festivals. Borriello performs in most of her company’s shows; she’s been teaching since 1982 and she holds workshops in Italy and abroad. She has made choreographic workshops in Italy and abroad and she’s also taught in institutional programs and designing training programs herself. Over the years, she has elaborated her own methodical approach which involves work on the body and the organization of movement. She has collaborated with composers such as Michael Nyman, Giovanna Marini, Massimo Coen, Daniel Bacalov, Francesco De Melis and musicians like Alexander Balanescu and Gilda Buttà. Adriana Borriello is currently the artistic director of AB Dance Research and of Da.Re. Dance Research, a three years training program for dancers and choreographers.

Thierry De Mey

composer and director. He has developed a system of writing music for movement used in pieces in which the visual and choreographic aspects are as important as the gesture that produces the sound. Much of his musical output is for dance and film. He has been (more than) a composer for choreographers Anne Teresa De Keersmaeker, Wim Vandekeybus and Michèle Anne De Mey. His major works include Rosas danst Rosas, Amor constante, April me, Kinok (choreography by AT De Keersmaeker); What the body does not remember, Les porteuses de mauvaises nouvelles, Le poids de la main (choreography by W. Vandekeybus); Dantons Töd (directed by Bob Wilson). His music has been performed by leading ensembles such as Arditti Quartet, Hilliard Ensemble, London Symphonietta, Ensemble Modern, Muzikfabrik and Orchestre Symphonique de Lille. He creates installations that combine music, dance, video and interactive processes, which have been presented at the Venice and Lyon Biennale and in many museums. His work has been awarded nationally and internationally (Bessie Awards, Eve du Spectacle, Forum des compositeurs de l'Unesco, FIPA, etc.) Among his dance films/installations Deep in the wood (2002-2024), Counter Phrases (2003-2004), One Flat Thing (2006). He was the subject of the documentary Corps Accord (ARTE, 2003). For the Brussels Biennale Charleroi Danse he made the interactive installation From Inside (2007), the dance film polyptych And Here Voices (2009), and the installation Solid Traces (2015).
