Adequate focuses its fluid dance, while dialogues and exchanges, around a founding question to its repertoire: our relationship to the other; relationships in love or fraternal, all against the intimate or at the heart of the professional sphere, of those who base us or pass through us.
A quest on identity and the world as it will be embodied by ample and generous movements that rub against a luminous impertinence, and must, according to the strong creed of Adequate, not to exclude, on the contrary to bring the audiencetogether.
From the meeting in 2010 of Lucie Augeai and David Gernez, both choreographers and performers, the company Adéquate (Poitiers) was born and with, in 2011, a duo Noeuds (Knots). Original work, acclaimed by several awards, it marks the launch of their artistic collaboration based on a work on identity and a fluid approach to movement.
From his second score, Frater (Young Talents Prize 2012) and then with the soli W(W for him and W for her),the company is plural; historical collaborators and partners join them. On stage itself, after adventures that were at the strongest in trio, Adéquate proposes in 2016, opening the Winters d’Avignon, Job, an up-to-one septet on the job of dancer-performer.
In 2017, the duo resumes their rights to serve a face-to-face subject, that of negotiation, with Embodied diplomacy where Lucie Augeai meets Korean dancer Bora Wee on stage.
Since Job, Lucie Augeai and David Gernez keep this desire to deepen the work of the voice in their pieces. In 2018, with the in-situ creation Douce dame (Sweet lady), the company welcomes two new collaborators, Simon-Pierre Bestion of Ensemble La Tempête and Vivien Simon, singer-multi-instrumentalist. A quartet is formed to mix dance, singing and ancient music.
2019 sees the birth of the new group piece of Adequate, Les royaumes (The Kingdoms). With 8 performers on set, the company choreographs a modern epic, the epic crossing of a band.
This desire to be plural, to invest different spaces continues, Lucie Augeai and David Gernez, commissioned by the Concordanse kids festival, imagine a young audience project for December 2021.
The company was associated with the Beaulieu Cultural Centre (Poitiers) from 2014 to 2015.
In 2016, the company was chosen to participate in an innovative scheme of the DRAC ex Poitou-Charentes, in collaboration with Les 3-T Théâtres de Châtellerault (86), Théâtre de Thouars (79) – Stage de Territoire , Territory Scene / Agglomeration of Bocage Bressuirais (79),
In addition, the team is in partnership with Châtellerault’s 3T-stage (86) for the 2016/2017 season.
From 2017 to 2019 the company is in partnership with the Olympia Theatre-stage conventioned dance of Arcachon (33).
After a first training in political science and law, Lucie Augeai trained through protean projects alongside choreographers such as Emanuel Gat, Nasser Martin-Gousset, and Bill T Jones, and also obtained her state diploma. Hired from 2010 by contemporary companies and street art, she tries on stage a new path between theatre and dance. She works for the company Given (Opus 1 and Absurdus), Pedro Pauwels (Sens 1 and performances in situ), and directors like Omar Porras.
Very quickly, she developed a work of choreographer of her own, first in choreographic workshops for amateurs, then created her first forms at events and for places not dedicated to dance. She embarks on the path of a singular writing inscribed in the world, nourished by her commitment to cultural actions – in 2013 she is even a finalist of the Prize of Artistic and Cultural Audacity of the Ministry of Culture for the projects she leads with the company Given on the territory of the Auvergne Region. Since 2011, she has been a choreographer associated with David Gernez at Compagnie

He began his career in Switzerland in 2002, and his singular career as a dancer-performer befell through independent projects, as well as musicals and operas.
2005 marked the beginning of an adventure with Angelin Preljocaj, first a student at GUID, then joined the company of the latter, and danced the most important pieces of his repertoire: Noces, Les 4 Saisons… Empty Moves (parts I and II).
The rest of his career followed with Emanuel Gat (The Rite of Spring, K626, 3for2007, Silent Ballet and Sixty Four), Nasser Martin-Gousset, the company Linga (no.thing, re-mapping the body), or the brothers Ben Aïm (CFB451) (Valse à trois time). Since 2011, he has been a choreographer associated with Lucie Augeai at Compagnie Adéquate.
