Julien Bruneau (B) is a dancer, choreographer and visual artist based in Brussels. At the intersection of movement, drawing and language, his work investigates the dynamic interplay between interiority and collectivity. It may take the form of performance, dance piece, drawing, in-situ installation, on-line publication or discursive event. As a whole, his work addresses the interactions between the many layers of our being into the world (personal and impersonal forces, materiality and thought, past and present) And more importantly, it aims at invoking the ungraspable flow that animates these layers and percolates through them. Since 2010, he gives his research the name "phréatiques" (aquifers), a project developed with the collaboration of M.Dalinsky, A. Llaurens, L.Myers, S. Si Ahmed and J. Peeters.
Bruneau’s work has been supported in many ways by Sarma and Bains Connective. Other partners include Netwerk, Workspacebrussels, Iselp, Twilight gallery, De Pianofabriek, Les Halles, Roma Europa Festival, Vooruit, WP Zimmer. He graduated in 2005 from La Cambre (Brussels) and in 2014 from the Amsterdam Master of Choreography (Theaterschool).
He graduated from La Cambre (Brussels) in 2002 and completed a master in choreography at the Theaterschool (Amsterdam Master of Choreography) in June 2014. Since September he works for Sarma on the Oral Site project, an on-line platform for multi-modal publications.
