Born in 1964, Olivia Grandville trained at the Opéra National de Paris dance school. In 1989 she joined the Bagouet dance company. Fascinated by the polysemic dimension of dance and the links between language and gesture, she has been working on letterist choreographic scores since 2008. This work has already resulted in 19 Ballets Ciselants, one of three forms making up Le Cabaret Discrépant which will be performed in its entirety in spring 2011. Meanwhile in 2010 she has been invited by the Domaine de Chamarande to perform a carte blanche and by the Festival d’Avignon for a “Sujet à Vif”.
