Créations Estelle Clareton
A woman who is passionate about the language and gestures of the body, Estelle Clareton initially performed pieces by other choreographers before making creation her way of life.
Since founding her company Créations Estelle Clareton in 1999, the choreographer has created a powerful and original body of works. They all take a lucid and playful look at existence, human relationships and the very experience of living and growing up. At the heart of her approach is an attempt to understand where we came from, where we are going and why we are going there, knowing that all this has an end. The themes of lost identity and the quest for autonomy also recur in her work. Humour and drama exist side by side.
Over the past twenty-one years, her company has undertaken eighteen creative projects, organized tours both here and abroad, and participated in audience development activities.
« Je me sens privilégié de faire partie de la merveilleuse équipe de Créations Estelle Clareton et d’être ainsi en mesure de contribuer notamment aux projets de tournée de PAYSAGES DE PAPIER, à la création récente de BOULEVERSEMENT, aux futures créations de la compagnie et au plan de transition en cours pour la mise en place prochaine d’une toute nouvelle dynamique de co-direction artistique »
