The Choreographer

Lénablou

Since 1989, Lénablou has taken on the role of creative director, through the choreographic work entitled “Noitulover 200”, ordered by the Vendredi Pichon Association (Guadeloupe). On this occasion, more than 40 dancers invaded the Fort Delgres of Basse-Terre. Strong of this experience, she went solo with several musical formations (Van Lévé, Poukoutan, Gwa-ka Sonné) and continued her experiments as a dancer-interpreter and choreographer. She was invited by Dance National Africa in Barbados, also for the theatre and the musical composition. She has created many parts for both her dance school and her company and continued to broaden her creation space by agreeing to create for The Rudra Béjart Ballet at the Métropole theatre in Switzerland (2003) or The Dominik Coco show at the Artchipel - National Stage of Guadeloupe (2007).

 

The Dancers

Many dancers collaborated and evolved within the Trilogie Co over the course of encounters and creations.

From Shantala Shivalingappa (India) to Darius Grandisson (Guadeloupe), Fabienne Marajo, Dayron Napoles (Cuba) or Pascale Désirée (Guadeloupe), Vittorio Bertolli (Italy), Vitolio Jeune (Haiti)… all these encounters were true enrichment for the Trilogie Co.

More recently, Cécilia Daninthe and Stella Moutou (former students of Lénablou) had the opportunity to interpret "Chimen Trasé" at the theater Robert Loyson of Moule (Guadeloupe).

 

Music and musicians

Musicians

Allan Blou

Allan Blou is a percussionist who started out in a traditional band called Karukera. Very quickly, he played along Manuelle Robert’s contemporary dance classes, as well as the Gwo Ka training courses and classes (traditional dance from Guadeloupe) organised by Jacqueline Cachemire-Thôle (founder of Akadémiduka) both in Guadeloupe and in France. He worked in parallel with the theatrical formation Malaka. Having lived a few years in Guyana, he is founding member of the jazz band Quatre Têtes and took part in the production of the album “Savannah”. Musician for the Techni'ka classes within the Lénablou CDEC, Allan Blou is one of the pioneers of the Trilogie Co. In 2006, he founded the musical formation called Kinté' Sens with other artists.

 

Felix Flauzin

Felix Flauzin took his first steps in Gwo-ka (The Guadeloupian traditional music) with association Kasangwa. He then joined the Akadémiduka, directed by Jacqueline Cachemire-Thôle. Thanks to his experience, he created its own structure: the Pablo workshop whose intention is to make a scientific study relating to the manufacture of the traditional drum-ka, while seeking to invent small percussions from recycled materials. In 1993, he integrated the Big-Band Ka and the Koncept-Kaban' N, whose objective is to maintain the secular codes of Gwo-ka music. In 1994, he joined the lénablou Trilogie Co and has become the permanent percussionnist of the Techni' ka classes.

 

 

The Music

The musicians of the Trilogie Co - Allan Blou & Félix Flauzin - took part in the musical creations of the company for all the percussions including small percussions.  Each part, Grenn Sel in particular, allowed them to explore new sound territories while following the underlying techni'ka theme. The violonists Alain Gravier (composer for the violin part) and Bruno Jofa also took part in the piece.

 

Daniel Trépy a self proclaimed musician - sculptor of sound, has collaborated for 20 years with the choreographer, Lénablou: Bab'Sal (1993), Funambule (1995), Poussières D’eau (2004), Fenêtre sur… Mon Bigidi et moi (2009).

His music is an mix of colors influenced by his geographical and cultural environment: the Caribbean.
