3 du TROIS, 3rd December 2018, TROIS C-L, Centre de Création Chorégraphique Luxembourgeois

Introducing their research ‚TextureBodyTexture‘, Elisabeth Schilling and Mélanie Planchard propose an experiential exhibition, that gives insights into their occupation of how a diversity of textures move the body and how, in turn, the body moves them.
The exhibition will thus invite the audience to heighten a critical awareness of the qualities of texture, bodies and space, how they meet and inform each other – and their impact – as they are experienced and inhabited. With their research, the artists will thus engage the public in a dialogue about the importance of dance, embodied movement, space and architecture. This exhibition is accompanied by a small performance, which will be the first ever sharing of the ideas around the work ‚TextureBodyTexture‘, which will premiere in April 2018 at the Circle Cité 2019.

Elisabeth will teach professional class in luxembourg at the TROIS C-L, Centre de Création Chorégraphique Luxembourgeois in the coming week. The class will take place from 10 – 11.30. am at the Banannefabrik, Bonnevoie.

Here a comment by a recent student of Elisabeth’s:

” The ballet class gave me space to explore. I could follow my own interests within movement in the barre/center work, as well as being able to take in the detailed personal and general feedback from Elisabeth. I thoroughly enjoyed moving  with breath and ease and really dancing within ballet again.” Kathryn Hewison, Leeds

Elisabeth was chosen as one of the many alumni of the last 10 years who studied at London Contemporary Dance School to speak about her path after her time at The Place. Read the interview here:

Together with director Suzy Wilson as well as fellow dancer Yen Ching Lin, Elisabeth has been interviewed by British online magazine Dance Direct on the process behind PLACEBO and the life of a contemporary dancer.

During the run of PLACEBO on its national tour throughout the UK, Clod Ensemble’s new production received great attention by the national press and has been reviewed in newspapers such as the Times, the Guardian as well as several magazines:
Selected reviews
Seeing Dance
“Bodies switch in the blink of an eye from fluid ripples to impish jumps.. To pounding beats the company push on together, building to an exuberant climax. At last untethered from any judgements, labels, or frameworks, the movement becomes their medicine.”


Brighton Source
“it’s an artistic triumph by Clod Ensemble to bring together so many different media to focus on this complex theme. It’s thoughtful and undogmatic. But the movement is ecstatic.”
