Thibaut Eiferman
(United States / France)

HHH (Hand, Heart, and Head) is both a theatre object, and a visual experience. Loosely inspired by an interview of Patti Smith in the 1970s, the work underscores social taboos and stereotypical representations of freedom. HHH, by combining a motley of references (country music, queer culture, Pussy Riot, Buddhist spirituality…), delivers a universal message that is not defined by shared cultural codes but by the ordinary human experience. An initial version of HHH won a prize at the international competition organized by the Machol Shalem dance house in Jerusalem as well as at the Choreographic Competition of Hannover.

Born in 1991, Thibaut Eiferman first trained to be a classical dancer and joined Ballet BC in Vancouver (Canada), then became a performer in Ate9 Dance Company in Los Angeles and, subsequently, in Young Batsheva Ensemble* in 2017-18. Based in Paris now, he choreographs, and teaches the Gaga dance technique created by Ohad Naharin.
