Kaori Ito

Born in Japan in 1979, Kaori Ito studied classical ballet and sociology in Tokyo, then contemporary dance in New York. She moved to Paris in 2003, and has since then danced for Philippe Decouflé, Alain Platel, or Kames Thierrée, and worked with Aurélien Bory and Denis Podalydès. As a choreographer, first on her own then with her company Himé, she has developed since 2008 a personal language, polymorphic and instinctive, between theatre and dance.
