She also composed two new musics : one for a  "Tiroler Landestheater" Cie's dancer in Austria and one for the 2018 audition's promotion of the Rudra Béjart's School.

 

 

 

Valérie Lacaze just created a new shooting of  "Choreo-photography" : “The principle of choreo-photography is the association of choreography and photography, my two professions. I create shootings which I prepare like choreographic research: the themes, the music, the costumes, the stage design and the decor. I then carry out a shooting session which may last several hours non-stop, and during which I lead the dancers as we go along. I am interested in the photography of movement because movement is Life in its truest sense. I am guided almost instinctively by the dancers’ vital pulsations which I perceive instantly or even anticipate.”
