The project of Michaela Solnicka was a creative residency for the dance piece Ambidextre. Michaela Solnicka is a visual artist and artistic co-director together with the international choreographer Souleymane Ladji Kone from Burkina Fasothe at company Ciel K. In 2017 they invited three versatile dancers Luc Sanou, Kevin Kaboré, and Alicia Gomis to prepare this dance piece.
The mobility support was used for a residence and the third stage of creation to finalise the choreography, set and light design and to make photo and video sets. They used a studio and received coproduction from the CDCN l´Echangeur in Chateau Thierry and CCN Viadanse in Belfort in France. In each centre, they arranged a public presentation and discussion with the audience.
The residency was the final and very important phase of the creation Ambidextre. We are an emerging international multidisciplinary company, founded by two artists, choreographer Ladji Kone and visual artist Soly Volná (Michaela Solnická) and it is our first group piece over 45minutes.
