Born in Belgium in 1982, Aurélie Lannoy takes up her theatrical education at the Institute of Diffusive Arts (IAD) in Louvain-la-Neuve. She continues her studies at the Kleine Academie in Brussels adopting movement and creation as her pedagogical fundaments. In the years after that, she also takes up courses at the Susan Batson Studio in New York following the Actor Studio method.
Shortly after graduating, Aurélie meets and joins Ontroerend Goed, a Ghentian company that explores new theatrical forms. Their artistic affinity is clear from the start. Aurélie works with them regularly as an actress, creator and performer and gets the chance to play internationally and receive awards at several occasions, among which the Festivals of Adelaide and Edinburgh.
On the silver screen, Aurélie plays the lead character in Inacia of Charlotte Dupont, Lucha Libre of Ann Sirot and Raphael Balboni and in the video clip Koko of Nicola Testa and Martin Landmeters. She also works with Anne-Cécile Vandalem (Das Fräulein Kompanie) on the video installation Still Too Sad to Tell You.
From 2016 onwards, Aurélie feels a strong need to express her own artistic identity. She decides to give herself the time to explore and experiment with the possibilities and the limits of a profound and authentical relation between an actor and an audience.
In the summer of 2016 and with the support of Area 42 in Brussels, Aurélie creates a first performance that marks the beginning of her artistic journey as a solo artist: Silent Screen, a work that questions our relation to the ‘minute of silence’.
To continue her research in the best conditions, Aurélie receives the support of Cultuurcentrum De Grote Post in Ostend, Vooruit in Ghent and CC Berchem in Antwerp, where she will take up a residency in the Season 2017-2018.
