Dancer, choreographer, and creator of experimental projects like the school Bocal, Musée de la danse or [terrain], Boris Charmatz subjects dance to formal constraints which redraw the field of its possibilities. During 2009 – 2018, he was the director of Musée de la danse / Centre chorégraphique national de Rennes et de Bretagne. In 2019, he launched [terrain]. In September 2022, Boris Charmatz will be the new director of Tanztheater Wuppertal Pina Bausch, to launch, with [terrain], a new project between France and Germany. He is the author of a series of seminal works, from À bras-le-corps (1993) to La Ronde (2021), in addition to his activity as a dancer, performer and improviser. In 2021, he orchestrated a performance for 130 dancers, Happening Tempête, for the opening of the Grand Palais Éphémère and he also opened the Manchester International Festival with Sea Change, a dance piece with 150 amateurs and professional dancers.
