Uniting East & West
The Company was born in 2009 from the desire to mix oriental techniques with contemporary arts.
Around Barbara Goguier, actress, dancer and director who was trained in traditional Turkish dances in Cappadocia, three women who support her: Florence Ponceau, a yoga teacher who received her teaching directly in India, Delphine Allard and Nada Mousali, both passionate about theatre, dance and the East.
Beyond the demanding artistic research of the company emerges a work directed towards the general public, on the awakening of the senses and the body, intuition and creativity. Associations such as Asca, Francas, Maisons pour Tous and neighbourhood associations have called on So’ham Bugün to create links between different artistic disciplines and individuals through workshops with a social vocation.
‘The body is only the life of the journey of the soul.’ Victor Hugo
Choreographer, director, actress, dancer.
From theatre to dance, from dance fighting to words, from a flamboyant expression to the earnestness of her artistic pursuits, Barbara Goguier is as multiple, complex and in movement as the world and life she is trying to tell.
In the late 1990s and early 2000s, she first trains at the Jean-Louis Martin Barbaz Studio in Paris and at the Orléans Conservatory, from which she graduates. At the age of 21, Barbara Goguier begins her career in the world of commedia dell’arte with the Amédée Bricolo company. With the Krizo Théâtre, she plays the role of Harlequin in Marivaux’s L’Île des Esclaves.
Between 1990 and 2003, she participates in classical dance, modern-jazz and contemporary dance shows. Among other things, she joins the Kabaret de Monsieur K (alias Jérôme Marin) and the Baaaal of the Compagnie Eponyme. In 2009, she learns traditional Turkish dances and the basics of dervish dance in Turkey and in Paris. In 2014, she learns the Feldenkrais method and Laban technique with Margaret Eginton in New York City.
She collaborates with many companies in Paris and Orléans. She has performed for Jean-Claude Cotillard, Niseema Theillaud and Sylvain Creuzevault.
Since 2003, she has directed numerous productions with amateurs and in the school environment and as part of Aux Arts Lycéens. In 2011, she shares the direction of Pièce en 6 with Hugo Zermati, which will be performed at Ciné 13 in Paris in 2016. In 2014, she directs Phèdre de Sénèque with amateurs and continues this work with semi-professional artists during a laboratory at the Maison des arts et de la musique, in collaboration with a hypnotherapist. In 2015, the Théâtre de Céphise asks her to direct an adaptation of Carole Martinez’s novel, Le Coeur Cousu.
Then, after a year of solitary research, she produces a video performance, a first version of her new project based on Victor Hugo’s texts and the sessions of the Tables de Jersey, titled “Birth of Sadaka Diwali”, which is performed at the Maison des arts et de la musique d’Orléans in June 2016.
Since March 2017, she has been working on Je crois des choses qui n’ont pas de contours (I believe in things which have no contours), a continuation of this research. She is part of Le Syndrome de la vie en rose, a project of the Compagnie Éponyme which is scheduled to tour in 2020-2021.
She practices Qi gong, Yoga, Turkish dances, systema, climbing, Shashka and nagaika, and has skills in piano, artistic fencing and capoiera.
