Jean Daniel Fricker
Portrait by IVA TRATNIK
She works with several companies in Paris for ten years.
Twice french judo champion and conscious of the importance
of the body for the actor, she searches for a "total" theater. Celine practices a "theater of extremes" where she explores the sublime and the monstrous through the universe of varied works from Racine to Hugo, from Novarina to Genet, from Artaud to Kane.
A body at once dense and sensitive leads her to meet Butoh experience.
She integrates Yumi Fujitani's Trois Garances group in 2004 and dances three years in her creation
" KAO-Chaos ", shown in particular in Théâtre du Lierre (Paris) in Rencontres Chorégraphiques – Japon 2006. She meets and practices with many butohkas, she dances for various companies and
also performs in Festival d'Avignon 2005, where she meets Jean Daniel Fricker.
She follows his workshops, assists his performances, integrates his company in 2007, and dances under his direction in " Prières " (2008), a group performance in Hampi, India and participates in the performances " Cambodian Ghost Stories " (2009) in Angkor temples and surroundings in " Aus den Sieben Leuten " in Austria (2010) and in group performances
" Femme(s) " and " Solitudes " in 2012 and " La Femme inconnue " and " Solitudes " in 2013, and
"ombres internes " in 2014.
He directed her solos " Dans le Cœur d’une Rose " (2007), " La Femme Ailée " (2009, new creation 2011), " Lumière Noire " (2012-2013) and " je ne danse pas j'offre mes os " (2017)
