Corps Multiple is a multidisciplinary company directed by French artist Sandie Donzica (dancer and choreographer). She founded the company in Austin, TX in April 2018 with singer and composer, François Minaux. We are merging contemporary dance, live music and theatrical performance.
Our researched experimental scenic improvisations are based on intimate experiences from people around us, as well as human psychology, behavior and deepest sensations. We strive to develop artistic evenings crossing genres and disciplines to produce eclectic, spontaneous and intriguing contemporary works in order to touch the senses, emotions and thoughts of the audience.
Our first production, (UN)ROOTED, premiered at The VORTEX in December 2018.
- Share a spontaneous and genuine performance by offering immersiveness, eclectic artists and using deeply developed improvisation tools on stage.
- Provide a hub for artists to collaborate and experiment freely; Educate the community on the art of improvisation, multidisciplinary collaboration, creation and performance.
- Offer dance masterclasses, professional training and improvisation workshops focused on listening, adapting and interacting with the participant’s senses and environment, exploring ways of expression and creativity through movement, sound and collaboration.
Using emotion as the core language of our multidisciplinary work, we want to break the wall that keeps all art disciplines away from sharing a spontaneous conversation. Combining synesthesia and free improvisation as performance practices, we are striving for all art media to create simultaneously and collaboratively. Our research with sound and physicality leads us to experience creation and performance from our senses first, using our sensations to provide authentic artistic experiences and connect deeply with the audience.
