Compagnie Nyash

Founded in 2006 by Caroline Cornélis, the company’s goal is to bring contemporary dance to young audiences, through an invested , engaged and poetical body language. Starting from what is real, familiar and tangible, the audience is invited to travel through and into a universe of sensations.

An ambitious project, developed through the contact with children and their universes, which requires and catalyzes a reinvention of form. Touched and influenced by the world of children, Caroline Cornélis draws inspiration from this universe and is nourished by their vision of the world and their imaginary tracks, by their singular natures. And, evidently, spectator children, in turn, recognize themselves in what they see and perceive, and find the paths to discover this contemporary language and make it their own.


While her pieces stem from the specificities of working with young audiences, Caroline Cornélis also wishes to consider and take into account the adults who accompany them.
Whether parents or teachers, it is essential that the adults also feel invested, touched, affected by what they see, as they have a fundamental role, a responsibility as «passeurs», «middle(wo)men», who invite the children to get involved in this common cultural heritage.

Caroline CORNELIS

Caroline Cornélis was born in Brussels in 1973. In 1998, while with the company IOTA, she discovered theatre for young audiences and ever since has been very keen to make young audiences more curious about and receptive to the language of contemporary dance.
In 2006 she set up her company, Nyash, and created La petite dame and Tout ce qui nous sépare.
 
Since 2010, she has been working alongside Miko Shimura as she continues to explore and refine her research for younger audiences. Together they created Kami, Terre Ô (awarded the prize of the Ministry of Children in Huy in 2013) and Stoel (awarded the prize of the Ministry of Children in Huy in 2015 and a prize from the media). In these last three pieces, the emphasis was on dialogue and on the confrontation between the body and matter, between bodies and objects.
 
Alongside her creative work, Caroline works as an artist and partner on development projects run by “Danse à l’école” within organisations such as the CDWEJ, Pierre de Lune, the Centre Culturel Jacques Franck and Rosas.
