Boris Charmatz

After studying at the conservatoire de Grenoble and at the school of the opéra de Paris, then at the conservatoire supérieur de Lyon, Boris Charmatz became a vital performer (especially in his work for Odile Duboc) and emerged in 1993 as a major figure in French contemporary dance with A bras le Corps, a duo created with Dimitri Chamblas. From 2009 to 2018 he was director of the CCN de Rennes et de Bretagne, which he transformed into a Dance museum, an experimental space to rethink the relationship between the public and the territories of art. Since then, he has ceaselessly been questioning the foundations of his discipline with his company Terrain, with the aim of making dance a space of liberty. He was associated artist with the Festival and performed in the Cour d’honneur with enfant in 2011. In 2022, Boris Charmatz became director of the Tanztheater Wuppertal to develop, with Terrain, a new project between Germany and France.
