Georges Appaix, became a dancer « by forced entry », then a choreographer on the job with the help of the dancers, created the company La Liseuse in 1984 in Paris. Since Antiquités which sealed his reputation in 1985, Georges Appaix has enjoyed approaching literature letter by letter, injecting graphic design and poetry, meandering over music and playing with visual arts. From A to Z he employs the alphabet as a common thread of a musical dance giving physicality to the letters.

 

The transversal approach to dance, text, music and imagery is at the heart of her creations thanks to a team of dancers and actors and collaborations with artists like Jacques Rebotier and Richard Dubelski, Yves Robert and Alessandro Bosetti. It's a spirit and practice contemporary dance demands but is also linked to other disciplines, not by adding new techniques which are prevalent in the whole show, but in the expression and association of these disciplines in the heart of the movements themselves.

In support of the company, she receives funding from the Minister of Culture and Communication (DRAC Provence-Alpes-Côte d'Azur).
She is subsidised by the City of Marseille, the Conseil Général des Bouches-du-Rhône and the Conseil Régional Provence-Alpes-Côte d'Azur.
