This is the story of a driven, desperate quest.
A Heroic story … To disappear.

To no longer touch the ground and fly. Fly like a bird, an omen of myself.
I am the trajectory of my own fate, terrified by that Elswhere awaiting me. No hit, no hurt.
It chases me, seeking to bring me down as if stabbing me with a knife.
It is absolute, an elsewhere … absolutely esleswhere.
Pulled down by killer winds like a leaf floating through a last autumn; I see it as my rapture is shattered.
At dusk, we can see it … a wolf devoured by its pack.
It sleeps.

Dubois, Olivier

Born in 1972, Olivier Dubois created his first solo “Under Cover” in 1999. In 2005, he performed the duet “Féroces” with Christine Corday for the Théâtre de l'Esplanade, St Etienne. The SACD (Society of Dramatic Authors and Composers) and the Avignon Festival invited him to compose a piece in 2006 in the context of “Vif du Sujet”, “Pour tout l'or du monde”.

In 2006 and 2007 he composed the first two parts of the Bdanse project: “En Sourdine” and “Peter Pan”. He has taught and led numerous workshops for companies and schools abroad. In June 2007 he was awarded the special jury prize by the Syndicat Professionnel de la Critique (Professional Critic's Union for theatre, music and dance), for his achievements as a performer and for “Pour tout l'or du monde”. He presented his new creation “Faune(s)” in 2008 at the Avignon Festival. At the ImpulsTanz Festival in 2008 in Vienna (Austria), he was awarded the Jardin d'Europe prize. In January 2009 he choreographed Offenbach's “La Périchole”, directed by Bérangère Jannelle at the Lille Opera.

He also held an exhibition in 2009, “L'interprète dévisagé”, at the Centre National de la Danse and in November 2009 he premièred “Révolution”, a piece for 14 female dancers set to variations on Ravel's Boléro. The Ballet Monte-Carlo commissioned a piece from him based on “Le Spectre de la Rose” for April 2010. He has performed for many choreographers and directors (Sasha Waltz, Nasser Martin-Gousset, Dominique Boivin, Jan Fabre, Emilio Calcagno, Charles Cré-Ange, Angelin Preljocaj, Karine Saporta, Elio Gervasi, Andy Degroat, Laura Simi...).
