Bonjour Claude

Bonjour Claude - Amy Jolly and Ellen Sargen - is an experimental duo who create new compositions through their shared performance practice. The duo came about through research into collaborative practice at RAM and RNCM respectively. Over four years, the pair have moved fluidly between their respective performer / composer roles to create a dynamic and experimental practice that blurs improvisatory and notated practices within a collaborative and significantly, performative autoethnographic space. Bonjour Claude have appeared at eavesdropping presenting their research and first piece Maps for Claude. The duo is currently working on Ballet, a piece expressing lopsided ballet dancing via conversation and the cello (Claude). Their work  constantly changes and grows as their practice develops.
