Biography

Aloun Marchal is an improviser, dancer and choreographer. French artist living in Gothenburg, Sweden, and Paris, France.
He receives the Danceweb grant in 2008 and 2012. In 2010, he is awarded the second prize of the Dance competition, “Danse Elargie” that took place in Theatre de la ville, for the creation of “Gerro, Minos and Him” in collaboration with Roger Sala Reyner and Simon Tanguy. In 2013, “Gerro, Minos and Him” is awarded the best dance piece award at the Stuttgarter Tanz-und Teaterpreis festival. In 2017, he receives the innovative choreographic grant from SACD for the creation of Bibi Ha Bibi.
He is currently touring three of his creations : “Bibi Ha Bibi”, “Gerro, Minos and Him” and “Trippel”. As a performer, Aloun is touring “More than naked”, a massively naked show choreographed by the Austrian artist Doris Uhlich, the last shows of the integrated dance company SPINN and “L’Age d’or” choreographed by Eric Minh Cuong Castaing.
Aloun decided to start dancing when he understood that thinking wasn’t enough. He felt that it was kind of the same as taking the objects drawn on a map for the objects themselves.
Since then he is fascinated by moments that don’t make sense yet, but eventually will.
