Clément Layes has been living and working as a choreographer and performer in Berlin since 2008. Here, he co-founded the company Public in Private together with Jasna L. Vinovrski.
At the interface between choreography, the visual arts and philosophy, the point of his works is found in observations on daily life. His performances - among them „Allege“ (2010), „Der grüne Stuhl“ (2012), „Things that surround us“ (2012) and „dreamed apparatus“ (2014) - are shown internationally. „TITLE“ (2015) is the last part of Layes’ performance series focusing on the man made world of objects surrounding us.
Layes’ current artistic interest in the role and mechanism of rhythm in theater and daily life is the focus of his newest work „The Eternal Return“, which will premiere at Berlin’s Sophiensæle in autumn 2017 and will mark the beginning of a new performance series.
