Malgorzata Czajowska


I started dance in Poland at 10. Later, I went to Codarts Rotterdam Dance Academy from 2005 to 2008. At that time, I wanted to work as a dancer because it’s on stage that I can really express myself. I need the stage in my life.

I arrived at the Ballet National de Marseille in 2009, then directed by Frédéric Flamand. Since Emio Greco and Pieter C. Scholten have come, my choreographic approach is much more physical, anchored in the skin.

During the great travel Extremalism was, there was a surrounding challenge linked to the frustration of restricted space, as we are always 30 dancers and the will to go beyond physical limits.

Through this piece, I achieved something I never experienced before. Yet it’s really at this moment that the company really merged betwen ancient and new dancers. Now, a liveful wind is blowing on the ballet.
