Dubbed “one of Europe’s most striking emerging choreographers” by Canada’s National Arts Centre, Clément Layes and Jasna L. Vinovrski founded Public in Private in 2008 in Berlin.
“In Public in Private Layes develops a method of work that confronts choreography, visual arts and conceptual thinking in a research focused on objects from daily life. This research has led to his solo-work “Allege“ (2010), and “to allege” (2011), as well as “der grune sthul” (2012) and “things that surrounds us” (2012), which were presented in numerous venues across Europe and North America. He was awarded at the 38th Infant Festival in Novi Sad, Serbia, and received a prize at the Jardin d’Europe in 2011.
Public in Private researches, reflects and questions social, political and cultural structures, as well individual position in this structures. Public in Private goal in collaborative approach is to broaden up the borders of choreographic language, intriguing different thinking, perceiving and reflecting about own and about other medias. Most relevant aim is however, further developing of choreography as contemporary art form.”
