montaine CHEVALIER

After her qualification in Dance Education at the “Centre Chorégraphique National” (CCN) in Montpellier, Montaine Chevalier studied Philosophy and Visual Arts. During her training, she focused on working with Contact Improvisation according to Steve Paxton. Among others, she studied “Composition Instantanée” under Julyen Hamilton, Simone Forti, Steve Paxton, Lisa Nelson, Mark Tompkins, Vera Mantero, David Zambrano and Barre Phillips. As a dancer, she worked with choreographers like Georges Appaix, Bernard Glandier, Odile Duboc, Alain Michard and Stéphanie Aubin, as well as director Alain Béhar and performer Yves-Noël Genod. She developed performances in collective work processes and interdisciplinary projects with artists like Nicola Frangione, Eric de Bresson, Eric Billabert, Christian Bourigault, Michèle Ettori, Didier Silhol, Louis Ziegler and Julyan Hamilton. For the past six years, Montaine Chevalier has been creating her own works, in which she combines performative elements, working with the voice and scenic elements and objects. She also deals with a range of topics such as contextualization and environment. In 2006, within the framework of the festival “Dansem” in Marseille, the production “La Surface de divagation” emerged in collaboration with visual artist Elodie Moirenc. In 2009, Montaine Chevalier created the piece “L’association Pandora 117”. She presented her choreography “Babouche Miniature” in 2010 among others in Casablanca and in 2011 in Aix en Provence.
