Claire is a French choreographer and performer, currently based in Vienna, Austria. Her pieces, created in close collaboration with the performers, are animated by the imaginary essence of story-telling. Weaving together poetics and politics, her choreographic inquiry is an ever evolving process, driven by her curiosity about the body in a performance context.

Claire studied contemporary dance and ballet at Lyon’s National Conservatory, and graduated from high school with a Dance and Music Techniques major, as well as art history and fine arts minors. At the age of 17 she was offered the chance to train at London Contemporary Dance School, and enrolled in the BA program. This is where she discovered a true passion for choreography and started making her own work. In 2012, she graduated from London Contemporary Dance School with a first class degree, and decided to pursue her choreographic research in Salzburg Experimental Academy of Dance, as a student of the International Choreographic Exchange program.
