Seiline Vallée (FR)
Actress and aerial acrobat, she grew up in a theater and has been playing from an early age.
She attended, for two years, the International Theatre School Jacques Lecoq in Paris.
Previously, her artistic expression and acting were shaped at the theatrical school Studio 34 and by her work under the leadership of Max Naldini. She has discovered and worked on street performances, clown and commedia dell'arte with El Teatro Nucleo and such directors as Jacques Hadjaje and Luis Jaime Cortez.
Meanwhile, she met Lili Dehais who taught her techniques on the trapeze fixe. Very quickly she is also dedicated to aerial acrobatics mainly on tissu, but also on aerial ring, vertical rope and other original materials.
She goes deeper into her practice in Germany, England, France and Czech Republic(Die Etage-Berlin, Jana Korb, Véronique Gougat-Cie Ascendances, Samuel Jornot-ACAPA, Zoe Maistre...).
Her theatrical experience covers a wide range of genres from classical (T. Williams, Molière, A.P. Tchekhov...) to contemporary (R. Poudérou, V. Sorokine...) and physical theatre, and she has worked under such directors as Jacques Connort, J.P Loriol, Rachid Akbal, Max Naldini, Éric Chatonnier, Cécile Borne, Philippe Maurice and Jacques Rosner.
Since 2002 she has been living in the Czech Republic, where her work combines circus with theatre.
She has worked primarily with the theatrical group Divadlo Continuo on a number of productions (Život v Peří, Cirkus Distown, Zatmění and the international meetings of Kratochvílení).
With Salvi Salvatore she created a poetic and acrobatic duo in the auctorial production The Flow of Time.
Together with Salvi Salvatore, she founded the theatrical ensemble Décalages - theatre in movement. From 2007 the ensemble has created five performances (Posedlost, TaBALADA, Bez Země, Na Větvi!, Velvet Blues) and plays through Europe.
She was, among others, invited to cooperate with The Budil Theatre School, which is educating their students according to the Jacques Lecoq method. She also gives work-shops "Initiation of the air acrobatics" for adults and children (Décalages, Cirqueon-Center for new circus...).
