"I feel like I wrote GRIS SOURIS as one composes music, with chords, melodic lines, high points and everything that forms a score."

Ros de la Grange, Véronique
Born in Casablanca on 27 August 1959. Following her training as a dancer, she became a performer for Régine Chopinot from 1978 to 1983.
Between 1984 and 2005, she created and produced some thirty choreographic works where actors, dancers, singers and circus performers take centrestage and where no distinction is made between their disciplines, but between individuals and their particularities.
From 2005 onwards, she focused on affinity with text and on directing actors. This led her to the production side, yet she never overlooked the mighty power and the significance of bodies on stage. Since then, she has created a dozen productions based on the texts of contemporary authors.
Alongside her creative work, she works hand-in-hand with a myriad of theatre and opera directors as artistic partner and choreographer.
She also works regularly in image media with directors on fictions, on dance videos and on advertising.
Since the very beginning of her career, Véronique Ros de La Grange has always advocated an educational approach with the actors, dancers and musicians whom she meets. She transmits to them, in particular, her receptive vision of the body on stage, of managing space, of signs on-stage and of sense, and senses, as part of an ongoing quest for precision and for letting go.
On another note, Véronique’s compelling desire to perform has never wavered.
