The objective of this class is to allow the dancers to meet a moment of dance history and to deepen their awareness of the moving body in their relation towards themselves and others. By using imagination and mental pictures, the class seeks to stimulate a dancing body dynamic from the inside to the outside. It focuses on bodywork centred on the deepening of fundamental bases and experiences in dance, as well as on a sensitive approach of movement and somatic practices.


Trained at the Mudra School of Maurice Béjart in Brussels, Bernardo Montet pursued his career along with choreographer Catherine Diverrès with whom he co-directed the Centre chorégraphique national de Rennes until 1998. As of 1997, he worked with faithful collaborators: Tal Beit Halachmi, Taoufiq Izeddiou, Dimitri Tsiapkinis and Marc Veh with whom he created a repertoire of about twenty pieces. He founded the company Mawguerite, became an associate artist at the Quartz, and directed the Centre chorégraphique national de Tours from 2003 to 2011. In July 2011, he was named Officier des Arts et des Lettres. In 2016, he began a research on the notion of tremor, based on the work of Martin Gusinde. All of his pieces deal with subjects that are dear to him: colonialism, memory, identity, body consciousness and resistance.
