Claire is a French choreographer, performer and writer, currently based in Vienna, Austria. In her research, she is fascinated by the balance between entertainment and seduction in the context of performance. She likes to think of herself as a host, welcoming the audience into kitsch landscapes where politics and poetics are gently interwoven. A self-titled language nerd, Claire also teaches writing workshops, and is a contributing writer for Springback Magazine.
