Nobody's Business doing Nobody's Dance

Nobody’s Dance is an open-source platform for the distribution and development of practical literacy in dance. During 5-days meetings, professional artists meet on equal grounds to share practical tools and knowledge. We want to affirm that the performing arts, movement, speech, dance, action, are all things that belong to Nobody, but rather are activated by and pass through each of us. All practices shared in those meetings are documented on a website, for us to begin to trace and accredit the genealogy of sources and influences within contemporary performing arts.

Teachback / TTT

Hosted by Jennifer Lacey and Alice Chauchat since 2013, Teachback is an experimental space of exchange and undoing for dance artists who teach. A yearly six day gathering, Teachback continues the TTT project initiated by Jennifer Lacey and danceWEB in the context of ImPulsTanz - Vienna International Dance Festival in 2009. In 2015, teachback acted as the mentorship collective of the danceWEB Scholarship Programme 2015. Its actors were Jennifer Lacey, Alice Chauchat, Alix Eynaudi, Anne Juren, Keith Hennessy, Mark Lorimer, Mårten Spångberg, Philippe Riéra, Raimundas Malašauskas and Valentina Desideri.

everybodys toolbox

Everybodys is a data base and a library, a toolbox and a game creator, a publication house, a score container, a site for distribution and for long term investigatory discussions. It is a platform for the development of tools and content, for research and performance, for exchange and desire. Everybodys is a collective effort to develop the discourses that exist within the performing arts and to create a platform where this information can be accessed by a wider audience than the practitioners it involves.


Created in 2005 by Alice Chauchat, Frédéric de Carlo, Frédéric Gies, Isabelle Schad and Odile Seitz, Praticable was a horizontal work structure based on the sharing of body practices. It brought together research, learning processes, creation, production and distribution, multiplying circulations between them. Each performance project implied the involvement of all members in the research and the elaboration of the practice from which the piece would ensue. The research periods could be part of a creation period or be completely independent from a production. In order to give visibility to this working context, every performance of a Praticable piece opened with an up to 20 minutes first part: a short piece, a work in progress or an excerpt of a work, by another participant of the project.
