          Language no problem

          In his former ballet career, contemporary choreographer and dancer Léonard Engel has learned to hide his body behind movement, grace and formations. In a solo, he dares to reveal the body behind the illusion. He precisely and humorously works his way through a series of experiments doomed to fail: Despite all strategies of deception, the impossibility to leave one’s own body behind brings its limitations into the center of attention. In the end remain both fascination and discomfort for those transformations experienced by a body reminded of its material existence and its own mortality.

          LÉONARD ENGEL, born in France, is a performer and choreographer and lives in Berlin and Munich. After graduating from the Paris Opera Ballet School, he obtained his first engagement with the Victor Ullate Ballet in Madrid, before spending eight years as a soloist under the direction of Ivan Liška at the Bavarian State Ballet in Munich, where he served the classical ballet genre, but also appeared in works by Pina Bausch, Aszure Barton, Russell Maliphant and William Forsythe. Since 2016 he has been working as a freelance artist, deepening his contemporary, technical and choreographic knowledge. In 2018 Léonard Engel received a research grant from the Cultural Department of the City of Munich for his project States of Survival, which deals with strategies of imitation in the animal kingdom. In 2019 he premiered his first choreographic piece, the Solo Pavane, at the Tanztage Berlin at Sophiensæle.
