Mindful Concentration, Coming back to Spring Qi Gong,
5 animals Qi Gong, Axis Syllabus
I like to define myself as a curious “movement researcher”.
Always passionate about movement, sport, and nature I started studying martial arts when I was 17 years old. This is now more than 20 years ago!
I’ve never stopped and my research brought me to Asia in the last years to dig more into different traditional disciplines (Chinese Internal Martial Arts, Muay Thai)
During the university years I’ve studied Physical Education and after completing my master in “Preventive and Adapted Movement Activity” I have begun my studies in theatre and contemporary dance.
Immediately after I stepped into Contact improvisation, a perfect and smooth synergy of all my previous movement activities.
This was somehow the time I started to work professionally on stage as a performer.
Meanwhile, I was teaching movement to a different kind of people. At the time I especially dedicated to a 1-1 rehabilitation work of old people in collaboration with doctors and physiotherapists.
I'm an Axis Syllabus certified teacher since autumn 2018
Today I'm a versatile performer who likes to mix knowledge from different disciplines of movement. I’m particularly interested in training methodologies and practices for personal development (Why do we do what we do?)
Science and traditions are mixed in what I teach and how I move. My masters and teachers are coming from different fields...Martial Arts, Mysticism, Science, Sport, Contemporary dance and theatre.
The research never ends and passing to others the information I got until now it’s, in my opinion, the best ways to review, elaborate and evolve them.

« Be herd or not to be herd » Co-creativity / AS / Choreographic proposals
Born on Reunion Island in 1981, Anne-Cécile Chane-Tune discovered a love for dance at the age of 14 and decided to go into exile in Europe, to deepen her knowledge in the artistic and choreographic field world.
Dancer-performer, choreographer and artist pedagogue, she is trained in classical and contemporary dance. She began her career at the age of 20, remained based in Brussels and crossed the countries of the world through various creations, productions, Belgian and French as well workshops in Europe with adults and children... mainly human till now.
On the roads for 20 years, between creations, touring and teaching, she is in constant search of artistic and intellectual nourishment in order to broaden and refine her perception, her vision and her knowledge of the art of dance.
She is sensitive to the body in its plasticity, its humanity and as a witness to the modern world, facing discoveries and unknowns... with hard moments and beautiful ones... actually life.
“ To summarize her flagship projects that have been touring internationally : Anne-Cécile Chane- Tune had Blush (Wim Vandekeybus) as well as Pellis (Thibaud Le Maguer), went to Gadget Study and Mariés (Mattéo Moles) to then land in A L’ombre des Arbres and turn in a Spirale (Félicette Chazerand). She meets Lisa and Traverse le monde with the company Arcosm, invests in collective research via the Axis Syllabus while remaining permanently with the collective En Transit ... as a performer- choreographer. She assists Frey Faust as a teacher and choreographer. Continuing her career, she meets the visual artist Miet Warlop, interprets the projects Leaves of Grass by Bud Blumenthal, Meta et Sirènes by Elodie Paternostre (video-dance), finds the company Arcosm (Thomas Guerry and Camille Rocailleux) for her short story Subliminal creation. She continues to make the Bodies Confident on stage and create-performs rOnde from Félicette Chazerand. She integrates the work of HIVE for Pietro Marullo. She creates her first solo Racines. She is invited as a choreographer to guide the actors for the theater project La Ronde Flamboyante, directed by Olivier Lenel, writing Emmanuel De Candido. She becomes a choreographic assistant to Félicette Chazerand for the Petite ronde project. With ALONE / ALL ONE, she begins her second personal research, born during the first lockdown and thus tends to bring out again her own choreographic aesthetic. »
