For 2019-2020, Chloé Déchery is developing a new multi-folded performance project, Première, which seeks out to uncover possible alternative narratives and trajectories of female artists (real and imaginary); playing with the notions of the « alter ego » within the frame of performance-making. For this, Chloé is working on a new playtext (her first); a two-handler performance score with a plant; a film installation of interviews with senior female artists and a lecture-performance offering a matrimonial take on art history
Research and development residencies include: Studio-théâtre de Vitry (September 2019; March and April 2020), the 104 (October 2019), Critical Path, Sydney, Australia (May 2019)
Chloé Déchery is also currently working on a book which includes the playtext of her previous performance A Duet Without You and which is entitled Performing Collaboration in Solo Performance, « A Duet Without You » and Performance as Research. It is due to be published with Intellect and will be released in Spring 2020.
