About

In few words:

The young American choreographer Bobbi Jene Smith is invited for the first time to the Paris Opera to create a work in her sensual, tribal and theatrical style. Born in Iowa, she joined the Batsheva Dance Company in 2009 where she danced for nine years under the direction of Ohad Naharin. In 2014, at the age of 30, she felt the need to create and took the risk of leaving Batsheva to try her luck as a choreographer. She returned to the United States and taught Gaga Dance classes at several universities and conservatories. In the course of her creations, she builds her language from grounded movements of enormous intensity, set in a contemporary and figurative scenography. Her dramatic approach and search for authentic movement explores the masculine and the feminine and portrays characters who tell moving stories with their bodies.
