The artist Yoann Bourgeois constantly strives to break down the boundaries between distinct artistic approaches.

His singular method is embodied in physical passageways that highlight one-of-a-kind phenomena, pushing him to conceive of an extraordinary variety of spaces and infinite variations of movement. His universe of work is the product of a lifelong, permanent creative process that he sums up as “The unreachable suspension point”.

After having performed with a host of renowned choreographers, Bourgeois created his own company in 2010. From 2016 to 2022, he served as Director of CCN (Centre Chorégraphique National de Grenoble), becoming the first circus artist named to lead one of France’s 19 CNNs (Centres chorégraphiques nationaux).

Dedicated to art that is radically multidisciplinary, physical and innovative, Bourgeois oversees performances, collaborations and workshops in all parts of the world. His creations rely on site-specific creations that build upon the energy and specific particularities of the surrounding environment.

In the 2019-2020 season, Bourgeois created his first piece for the company called Little song for the dancers of NDT 2. A year later in the 2020-2021 season, he created his first piece for NDT 1, I wonder where the dreamsI don’t remember go.

In season 2023-2024, the creator will return to create a new work for NDT 1.
