company yvann alexandre

Founded in 1993, compagnie yvann alexandre is a professional contemporary dance company based in the Pays de la Loire region of France. From the outset, the company has been committed to the interplay between professionals, amateurs and audiences, developing its creations on stage or in situ, and weaving a policy of exchanges, encounters and training. In 2019, the company took over the artistic direction of the Théâtre Francine Vasse in Nantes with an atypical project turned towards other artistic teams, and which starts with transmission to arrive at the work: Les Laboratoires Vivants. Faithful to its ties with Quebec, the company develops Archipel, an agile cooperation platform for artistic mobility.

Yvann Alexandre

From the start, Yvann Alexandre's creative drives have stemmed from human encounters. He begins his processes with transmission, then moves on to writing a work. He is a choreographer who looks at the world, right into the dance, who precisely maps the echo of the world within him, with attention, delicacy, absorbing fleeting fluctuations, coincidences, tomorrow is above all a choreography that ignores itself. With a particular attachment movement writing, and with fidelity to the notion of line, he has established himself as the bearer of abstract dance. His precise gestures are teeming with detail, organized like intimate calligraphy.



His style, based on a physical score with his own personal notation, allows him to free himself from his own codes, in favor of direct interaction with the performers.



Born in La Roche-Sur-Yon in 1976, Yvann Alexandre began his musical career with the Amicale Laïque and at the local conservatory, before moving on to La Rochelle. He continued his training in Montpellier with Epsedanse, and at the same time attended the CCN de Montpellier, newly directed by Mathilde Monnier. It was at the age of sixteen that he composed his first pieces, and founded his own company in 1993 in Montpellier. He created his first work for the Hivernales d'Avignon and Montpellier Danse.


In addition to his creations, presented on numerous prestigious stages and festivals in France and abroad, he is also a guest at the Conservatoires National Supérieurs de Paris and Lyon, in Quebec and Montreal, and at the Centre Chorégraphique National de Nancy and the Nordwest Tanzcompagnie in Germany.



Alongside his creative work, he is also artistic director of the Théâtre Francine Vasse in Nantes, with an innovative project that starts with transmission and ends with the work itself: Les Laboratoires Vivants. Yvann Alexandre has been SACD's managing director for dance since 2023.
