Jann Gallois has been named Dance Bearer of Hope of the year 2015 by the german magazine Tanz
Diagnostic F20.9 was born from my interest for brain mechanisms that deal with the loss of control of the body and the mind. As a dancer and choreographer, I have been working for many years on a daily basis to acquire an extreme control of my own body and I found myself questioning about the reverse process : when and how can this control mechanism derail ?
In this sense, while studying cognitive dysfunctions, I immersed myself into the psychiatric medical community and discovered a very well spread illness, victim of many prejudices and yet, still unknown by most of the people : schizophrenia, listed in the International Classification of Diseases (ICD) at the chapter F20.9.
The several meetings and exchanges I experienced with schizophrenics gave me this desire to transcribe this mental disorder into a vocabulary of the body.
Such people, as rich as they are, both by their sensitivity and their intelligence deserve, according to me, a testimony in order to destigmatize this disease
