Denis Plassard's Bio
Denis Plassard started to dance on a misunderstanding : wrapped up in crepe paper for the "End of the Year Show" in primary school, he was convinced that the steps meant something and that putting them together was just like writing sentences to tell a story... Since then, he continues to ask himself the same questions: what does the movement mean? What do we say when we move? He then decided to study dance and entered the "Conservatoire National Supérieur de Musique et de Danse" in Lyon. After graduating, he danced for 2 seasons with Josette Baïz's company in Aix-en-Provence.
In 1991, at the age of 23, he set up his own company named after his first solo, Propos, which was created the year before. Very early in his choreographic career, he tried to create dynamic links between speech and movement and his work focused on the connection between "Dance and Text". His choreographic writing is precise, sharp and very theatrical, and his style is quirky and full of humour and derision. A prolific choreographer and eager dancer, he enjoys being confronted with new universes and is continually looking for artistic meetings and crossroads between different aesthetics.
With around 45 shows up their sleave, the company regularly tours around France as well as overseas. This is the first time that Denis Plassard is touring Australia, at the invitation of the Melbourne, Sydney, Perth and Canberra Alliances Francaises.
