Donc (“Therefore”) speaks of intimacy, where the group cannot enter, of the performer's own expe- rience in the gesture of creation. The music is the bond of virtuosity, of the shared experience taking shape on the stage.
“I want to explore and detect the material that we handle during the gestation of the creation, that material which is essential to the dancer's understanding and maturity. The material that gives birth to the performance but that, out of both choice and necessity, disappears in the end. I should like to ponder the performer's feelings and personal commitment during this particular period of creation, his power and ability to grasp the questions raised while working together. To delve into what the performer experiences deep down, what he remembers, what he constructs both for the project's own sake and in parallel to it. In a previous creation, the issue raised was the relationship of gesture to music, the relationship of the dancers to the musicians.
Today I want to experience what happens afterwards. What vibrations of the senses, of the bodies, persist? I invite four dancers and a violinist to testify to the absence, the silence, the echo that dwell in them. They will each seek the musical, choreographic and human essence of their relationship to music and to dance.” (Sylvain Groud)

Groud, Sylvain

In 1991, received his diploma from the CNSMD of Paris, contemporary dance section and the same year received the prize for best performance at the Bagnolet competition with the  Gigi Caciuleanu company. From 1992 to 2002, he is a dancer for the choreographer Angelin Preljocaj. He is alo an award winner at the Concours International de Paris with his first choreography, and then creates for the National Theater of Bucarest in Romania and the Opera of Skopje in Macedonia. Created in 2002, the Compagnie Sylvain Groud moves to Normandy in 2006 and is in residency for three years in Vernon. In 2007, his work "Si vous voulez bien me suivre", is noticed. In 2009, the experiences shared with the cultural mission of the University Hospital of Rouen led the company to a residency at the Boucicaut retirement home at Mont-Saint-Aignan. In 2010, the Opera of Rouen places an order for Cordes, works for eight dancers, twenty-four musicians under the director Benjamin Levy. Continuing this questioning about the relationship between music and dance, he creates Héros Ordinaires in 2011 for four dancers and four opera singers and Collusion for four dancers and the electro composer Molecule. In 2010, Je suis descendu du plateau, was born of a meeting with the writer Maylis de Kerangal. The same year he is invited to meet five hip hop dancers at Suresnes Cités Danse, and creates Elles a piece that is continued with the solo Ma leçon de hip hop in 2013. In 2012, he orders a piece from the visual artist Jonathan Loppin. Together, they create Chambre 209, a choreographic and digital installation on four sides. In 2013, enthralled by Steve Reich’s music, Sylvain Groud creates a choreography to Music for 18 Musicians performed live by the Links Ensemble.


 With his in situ projects, such as People (over two hundered performances to date), Sylvain Groud is endeavouring to make dance burst forth where it isn’t expected. 


Since 2010, the company has been in residency at the Scène Nationale of Saint-Quentin-en-Yvelines and Sylvain Groud will be associate artist at the Scène Nationale of Montbéliard since 2011. With a repertoire of 21th creations ranging from solos to large ensemble pieces, the company tours with five pieces on average, over sixty performances each year, a third of which are in situ. He’s at the head of the Centre National Chorégraphique of Roubaix Nord Pas de Calais since the end of 2017.
