Julie Nioche

About artist / group: 

The young French dancer Julie Nioche received her dance education at the Conservatoire National Supérieur de Musique et de Danse de Paris, and went on to develop her skills through collaborations with such important choreographers as Meg Stuart, Alain Buffard, Catherine Contour, Emmanuelle Huynh, and Jennifer Lacey. In 1996, Nioche, together with Rachid Ouramdane, co-founded the research and production institute L'Association Fin Novembre. A psychology and osteopathy student, she also runs therapeutic workshops for people with eating disorders; in this way, she connects her studies and her creative work through concentrated reflection on the body: body image, the transformation of the body and the identity crises that arise from society's ubiquitous emphasis on the body. "Our investment in the body seems to reflect the relationship we have with the world" (Julie Nioche).
