After studying psychomotor education, Bernardo Montet joined the Mudra school and went to Japan to study butoh dance. He was co-director with Catherine Diverrès of the CCN de Rennes, then founded his company, Mawguerite. He was directed of the CCN de Tours from 2003 to 2011. Since 2012, his company has been based in Morlaix, where he is associate artist with the Centre national pour la création adaptée.
