Founded in 2011 by French choreographer and performer Tatiana Julien, INTERSCRIBO explores spectacular hybrid forms for both theater and on-site performances, mixing professionals and amateurs, questioning the artist’s commitment to the world and the role of the spectator/citizen. These creations, often adapted to the architecture of the location, offer engaging devices for the audience and deploys a fantasy of dance that contaminates everywhere, all the time, a dance that creates empathy. Sound, light, and text are its essential elements. The body engages with these immersive landscapes like a piercing cry, crossed by its context, charged with a persistent and vital force.
The company’s first creations, la Mort & l’Extase (Death & Bliss), Douve, Ruins and Initio, a choreographic opera were forms on the outskirts of expressionism. With chiselled, verbal and embodied choreographies. Its more recent creations Turbulence – a choreographed installation for headphones in a non-dedicated space -, Soulèvement (Uprising) – a bi-frontal solo piece on resistance -, and A F T E R – piece for eight performers (postponed due to sanitary crisis) in a collapsing scenography-, Not ending – solo piece for Jacqueline Bâby, dancer at Ballet de l’Opéra national de Lyon ordered by Julie Guibert for her project “Danser encore” and Decay – piece with a great slowdown ordered by CCN – Ballet de Lorraine in Nancy for its 25 dancers -. Since April 2022, she starts her next piece at the Tanzfabrik of Berlin, A whole Night,- a duo created and performed by Tatiana Julien and Anna Gaïotti, in a circular stage design-.
As part of the European Dancing Museums project the company created a highlight for dance entitled La Cité (éphémère) de la danse and invited various choreographers to perform the utopia of a city of dance that connects to its locals. Tatiana Julien created the Prière de ne pas détruire and Monumenta performance in the nave of the Grand Palais in Paris. She also performed at the National Gallery in London, the Boijmans museum in Rotterdam, the Gemälde Galerie in Vienna, the museo Civico, the Arte Sella museum in Italy, and at INHA.
