Presentation

Siamese Cie is the new artistic name adopted by Koen Augustijnen and Rosalba Torres Guerrero. For more than 20 years, they have both been part of the Belgian and international dance landscape. Out of this shared artistic history, they will continue in the future to support each other’s creations as well as develop new projects which they will co-create and co-direct.


'Siamese' means conjoined, unified, melted together. They make independent productions that are intended to celebrate diversity and plurality and have a preference for cross-overs between different genres, cultures, languages and traditions.

 


Gloed vzw is the incubator - to nurture - and the facilitator - to support - the artistic projects that Koen Augustijnen and Rosalba Torres Guerrero want to develop, both individually and together.
Gloed is Flemish for ‘glowing’, stands for the ‘glowing and smoldering’ cinders of the artistic desire to create. Gloed will provide the necessary support and oxygen to blow the potential of the artistic dialogue between Koen Augustijnen and Rosalba Torres Guerrero into new creations.

The two choreographers of Siamese Cie are associated artists with
La Comèdie de Clermont-Ferrand - 
scène nationale, for the period 
2019-2021.

 
 

KOEN AUGUSTIJNEN

Career

Born in 1967, Mechelen (BE)

 

Koen Augustijnen studied history at Ghent University (1986-1988) and enrolled for theatre workshops at the Antwerp Conservatoire (1989) as well as workshops hosted by Jan Decorte in Brussels (1990). In addition, he attended dance workshops by Wim Vandekeybus, Caro Lambert, Min Tanaka, Laurie Booth, Suzanne Linke, Francisco Camacho, Christine Quoiraud, Frank van de Ven, David Zambrano and others (1990-1999). His principal training and work experience, however, has been firmly rooted in his staging of performances as a member of les ballets C de la B.

Koen Augustijnen worked closely with Les Ballets C de la B since 1991, initially as a dancer in performances staged by Alain Platel (Mussen, Bonjour Madame, La Tristeza Complice), Hans Van den Broeck (How to approach a dog) and Francisco Camacho (Prénom:Le). From 1997, he became one of the company’s house choreographers.

To Crush Time (1997), his first self-choreographed production, was followed by Plage Tattoo (1999) co-directed together with three musicians from Zita Swoon and with Tamayo Okano. His third major production was Ernesto (2000), a dance solo and docudrama, co-directed with his brother Sven Augustijnen, which in turn was followed by Just another landscape for some jukebox money (2002). bâche (2004) brought him an international breakthrough, followed by Import/Export (2006), Ashes (2009) and Au-delà (2012)

Apart from les Ballets C de la B, in this period he also joined forces with dEUS (live concerts, video clips), choreographed for Ivo Van Hove and Toneelgroep Amsterdam (RENT, True Love, Carmen, Perfect Wedding) and for Arne Sierens and Compagnie Cecilia (Altijd Prijs), and co-directed for Stalker Theatre Company (Incognita), among other things. In 2009 he also created a mass choreography for Nic Balthazar’s video clip Dance for the climate. In 2011, he created the performance Oogst in collaboration with TG STAN.

BADKE

In 2013 Augustijnen left les ballets C de la B and started working freelance.

 

He joined forces with Rosalba Torres Guerrero and dramaturge Hildegard De Vuyst to direct Badke. This is a dance production in which 10 Palestinian dancers from different dance backgrounds come together and update the Arabic dabke dance in a contemporary setting. This traditional dance was injected with contemporary information, deconstructed and put back together again. Since its creation, Badke has toured worldwide for 4 years with widespread public and critical acclaim.

“A firework of a dance performance as is rarely to be seen in Zurich.”

(Lilo Weber, Nue Zürcher Zeitung)

“Without any problem these young dancers jump from tradition to modernity and back. If it depended on them, the Middle-East conflict would have been solved already.”

(Maya Künzler, Tages-Anzeiger)

GUDIRR GUDIRR

In 2013 he directed Gudirr Gudirr in Australia, a dance solo for the Australian dancer Dalisia Pigram and the Marrugeku Company, which makes innovative intercultural dance. In 2015 this performance won an Australian Dance Award as best independent dance production of the year.

Drawing on a physicality born of Dalisa’s Asian-Indigenous identity, on her acrobatic skills and on her traditional and contemporary dance experience, together with Koen she built up a dance language to capture a moment in time for her people. Gudirr Gudirr is a warning call to a community facing massive industrialisation on traditional lands, loss of language and major gaps between indigenous and non-indigenous wellbeing. Gudirr Gudirr had a great opening at the Massive Dance festival in Melbourne in March.

“Gudirr Gudirr is a truly timely work that should be seen widely. Showing all the signs of careful collaboration from a gifted team, it conveys complex experience in the shape of Dalisia Pigram, who shows us in the sharply shifting facets of her performance the rich and troubled life of her community and of this country.”

(Virginia Baxter, RealTime Arts)

In The Truth Commission Koen Augustijnen collaborated with the directing duo Chokri and Zouzou Ben Chika. One hundred years after the world expo in Ghent (Belgium), where 120 Senegalese and 60 Philippine people were exhibited, Chokri and Zouzou Ben Chika took the initiative to organize a “Truth Commission” in the old courthouse in Ghent. Were those exotic attractions racist? Or were they an example of a positive cultural exchange? Koen revised a dance solo by the dancer Chantal Loial. The solo is shown as his personal testimony and he verbally defends this work with passion. The production was invited to South Africa (Johannesburg) in February 2014.

SEHNSUCHT

Sehnsucht, LIMITED EDITION was made in 2014 and opened on 6th March in the Oldenburgische staatstheater in Germany. The company then moved to Mainz. Under the wing of TanzMainz, this dance piece was programmed until 2017.
It is an encounter between six contemporary dancers at Tanzcompagnie Mainz with the brilliant Belgian accordionist Philippe Thuriot, who interpreted Bach's ‘Goldberg Variations’.
The German word Sehnsucht is almost untranslatable. Melancholy, longing, desire, aspiration, it encompasses them all. Koen Augustijnen sees "Sehnsucht" as the wish to express a fundamental lack of satisfaction.  It is an evening of raw physicality, emotional sensitivity and a topic that burns inside all of us, tempered by some humorous moments.

Koen Augustijnen worked on a location project with young artists in the 3 cities. They focused on questioning group dynamics in a community. Considering a community as a living entity that is undergoing permanent change and transformation.

In Riga, the workshop turned into a full evening piece called With love From Vecmilgravis. It was reworked into indoor performance and was first performed in Riga and then toured Latvia.

DANCING BACH

In 2015 Koen Augustijnen made Dancing Bach for the Konzert Theater Bern (Switzerland). It was an encounter between eight contemporary dancers from Tanzcompagnie Bern with the Berner Symphonieorchester conducted by Jesko Sirvend, which played selected pieces by J.S. Bach.


The main theme of Dancing Bach is “guilt”. A universal theme, which is omnipresent in the lyrics of J.S. Bach.


Augustijnen is interested in guilt as an internal conflict and as an emotional experience. Dancing Bach was the intense result of moulding all this into a physical and theatrical form. It juxtaposed the sacred music of J.S. Bach with some raw and highly emotional scenes.

In 2015 Augustijnen again collaborated with Ivo Van Hove and Toneelgroep Amsterdam for De Stille kracht and in 2016 for De dingen gaan voorbij. He coached a master project at the RITCS in Brussels. Also in 2015, he created a choreography for Yoyogi, an initiative by the choreographer Koen De Preter, who invited several choreographers to make a dance to be performed by big groups of people in the parks of Antwerp. In 2016 he collaborated with the Geneva-based stage director Patrick Mohr on Eldorado for Théàtre Spirale. And he coached 2 projects at the Talentlab, an initiative by Les Théâtres de la Ville de Luxembourg.

YOYOGI was an initiative by the Belgian choreographer Koen De Preter, who invited choreographers including Koen Augustijnen and Sidi Larbi Cherkaoui to the Zomer van Antwerpen Festival to create a short dance which was performed by groups of non-dancers in the parks of Antwerp during the summer of 2015.

In 2016 Beytna opened at the Tanzquartier in Vienna. Four choreographers from Lebanon, Japan, Belgium and Togo met onstage over a banquet. They were from different continents, cultures and countries. They had different artistic experiences, with different backgrounds and ideas. What connected them was their profession. They ate, talked, drank, laughed and danced. This was inspired by the almost sacred ritual established by Omar Rajeh’s grandfather, who used to gather family, friends and guests around a table full of food in the mountains of Beirut on Sunday afternoons. Accompanied live by the Palestinian musicians of Trio Joubran.

HOCHZEIT

Koen Augustijnen joined forces with Rosalba Torres Guererro to direct this new dance-theatre creation in collaboration with the complete dance ensemble of Tanz Mainz, 5 actors from the Staattheater in Mainz and a Mainz-based, ready-for-anything musical band that has seen this all before and here goes Balkan.

The premiere was at the Staattheater in Mainz on 29 April 2017. At the heart of “Hochzeit” is a wedding. It offers a context in which to let emotions come out, to throw away conventions, and to question this ritual and the mechanism of living as a couple. 13 different nationalities on stage bring their own rituals and dances to transform this material into a whirling wedding party/ritual which at times gets seriously out of control.

Hochzeit offers a rare combination of 5 born actors and the complete dance company of TanzMainz. Dancers perform along with the actors’ lines, taken from the writings of Joël Pommerat, Lars Von Trier and Patrice Chereau, and by the same token the actors dance and also act in a very physical way.

ROSALBA TORRES GUERRERO

Career

Born in 1974, Geneva (CH)

Her training as a dancer started at the Conservatoire de Genève until she joined the CNDC Esquisse in Angers (France), where she collaborated in the creation of Bernardo Montet’s Marguerites de l'oubli, and on the reruns of Dominique Dupuis’ Les Visages de femmes and Dominique Bagouet's Les petits pièces de Berlin.


In 1995-96, she began her professional career with Philippe Decouflé and her company DCA with the crazy creation of Décodex.

Attracted by dance-theatre, she joined the Deutsche Nationaltheater company in Weimar (Germany) in 1997-98 under the directorship of Ismaël Ivo and created Medeamaterial.

In 1997, she returned to France and worked with the Keli company on Cinderella otherwise with Indian dancers from South Kerala.


In the same year, she began a 9-year adventure with Anne Teresa de Keersmaeker's Rosas company for the creations of the now famous Drumming and Rain, to music by Steve Reich, I said I, In real time, Bitches brew / Tacoma Narrows, Kassandra, Raga for a rainy season / Love supreme and the repertory pieces Achterland, Woud, Mozart / Concert arias-a motorcycle di gioia.

PÉNOMBRE

In 2011, Les Ballets C de la B produced Pénombre, her first personal project, a dance-video duo in collaboration with the visual artist Lucas Racasse.

1/5

VSPRS / pitiÉ! / Out of context
/C(h)œurs

In September 2005, she joined Les Ballets C de la B in Ghent and until 2012 worked with Alain Platel on the creation of VSPRS, Pitié !, Out of Context for Pina and C(h)oeurs.

In 2011, Yann Le Quellec chose her for the lead role in the unusual film Je sens le beat qui monte en moi (Beauty and the beat).

This was followed by fruitful collaboration with several major directors.


In 2013-14, for the creations Les Troyennes and Die Rasenden at the Schauspielhaus in Hamburg, Rosalba played the part of Cassandra (in German), a Trojan princess cursed by Apollo, who gave her the gift of prophecy, but whom no one will believe.
The director Karin Beier, asked her for an acute, extremely physical interpretation of this mythological figure.

1/6

LULU / DON GIOVANNI / PHèdre(s)

In 2012, Krzysztof Warlikowski, the theatre and opera director, asked her to play the alter ego of Lulu in Alban Berg’s opera of that name. To do this, he proposed that she should embody the figure of the black swan and also, wearing ballet shoes, to create a contemporary version of the emblematic death of the swan.

In 2014, he invited her to La Monnaie again, to participate in the production of Mozart’s Don Giovanni. This time she became an androgynous creature that crystallises and exacerbates the powerful desires of the protagonists.


And in 2016 they met at the Théâtre de l'Odéon in Paris for the creation of Phaedra(s) with Isabelle Huppert. Throughout the play, Rosalba Torres Guerrero plays an obsessive incarnation of Aphrodite’s drives that come to assault Phaedra.

1/10

BADKE

In 2013, she collaborated with Koen Augustijnen and Hildegard Devuyst on the creation of Badke at the KVS. Ten Palestinian dancers with diverse artistic backgrounds were involved in this show, whose starting point was the 'dabkeh', ​​a traditional Palestinian dance, an energetic and popular expression of belonging to a collective body. Is it possible, however, to make this dance dialogue with a contemporary method? Is it possible to deconstruct it and then to recompose it again? To what extent is this traditional dance permeable to other influences? How is it possible to question tradition without scaring off the public? This show gave an answer and toured intensively nationally and internationally for 4 years.

HOCHZEIT

For Hochzeit (Wedding), Koen Augustijnen and Rosalba Torres Guerrero were asked by the Staatstheater in Mainz to make a creation that brings together the 19 dancers from the Tanzmainz company, 5 actors from the Staatstheater ensemble, 5 musicians from Vibes, and guest performers.

‘This is supposed to be the most beautiful day in your life ... A day when marriage celebrates life itself and which everyone will have an unforgettable memory to keep. A unique opportunity, under pressure, bringing together people who would not necessarily have met in another context and who will be dragged into a whirlwind of unpredictable and exacerbated emotions.’


Production: TanzMainz

DATA

Mainz: 29 april & 5,13, 20, 29 mei

& 2, 4, 7, 13, 22 juni.

Long Past is a play for 6 dancers from the Bodhi Project in Salzburg (Austria).


3 men and 3 women whose memory has faded try to reconnect with what may have been their individual identities and who undertake to understand what motivates their newly rediscovered emotions. They try to collectively discover the meaning that a community can have. They are accompanied by music that conveys the remains of a distant world.
