“The body is an infinite reservoir of discovery and potential.”
Choreographer Mathilde Monnier has helped shape the contemporary dance landscape. Her pieces defy expectations and show constant renewal. She explores issues inherent to the discipline of composing movement, as well as themes linked to broader questions such as communality and the links between the body to music and memory. Her appointment as director of the Centre Choreographic National de Montpellier Languedoc-Roussillon in 1994 marked the beginning of a period of experimentation with other artistic fields, and a reflection on the role of the institution and its outreach.
