Artists, companies, institutions, these structures bring to the platform their audiovisual heritage, their knowledge, their expertise in favor of the choreographic art. For the platform's 10th anniversary, it was important and necessary to put the contributors of Numeridanse in the spotlight!
In order to celebrate them and so that Numeridanse users get to know them better, we have invited our contributors to answer a series of questions about their works, their inspirations, their desire for collaborations, their creation anecdotes.

Choreographer and performer Ambra Senatore was born in Turin in 1976.
She trained with various choreographers, and moved on to work with Jean-Claude Gallotta, Giorgio Rossi, Raffaella Giordano, Georges Lavaudant (Théâtre de l’Odéon, Paris), Roberto Castello, and Antonio Tagliarini.
Since 1998, parallel to her work as a performer, she began to create performances in collaboration with other authors, for instance Reminda-remoda, Un po’io un po’tu (1999), and Silenzio (2002).
Following her doctorate in contemporary dance (2004), she taught history of dance at the University of Milan and wrote a book on italian contemporary dance (published UTET, Torino, 2007).
From 2004 to 2009, Ambra Senatore pursued choreographic research on solos which she performed: EDA-solo, Merce, Informazioni Utili, Altro piccolo progetto domestico, Maglie. It was now that her work began to be regularly broadcast in France, most notably at the Hivernales d’Avignon.
Thereafter she would create group pieces: Passo (2010), A Posto (2011) and John (2012). In 2012, she founded the EDA Company based in Besançon. In 2013, she choreographed and directed Nos amours bêtes, a show for young people based on the text by Fabrice Melquiot. Her latest creations are Aringa Rossa (2014), the solo In Piccolo (2014), and the series of performances entitled Petites Briques (2015).
Between dance, theatre, and visual art, her work explores the boundaries between fiction and reality; what belongs to the performance and what lies outside of it. Ambra Senatore works on the dynamic of danced movement, enriched by elements of theatricality and everyday actions and gestures, by exploring the construction of a dramaturgy which looks at the action and presence of the body.
Since the 1st January 2016 Ambra Senatore has been the new director of the NCCN: The National Choreographic Centre of Nantes.

After training in video editing, Tiffanie Deschamps made her debut in television. From the start, she never ceased to build bridges between her work as an audiovisual editor and her activities as light manager and assistant director for live shows with the Mac Guffin collective. Co-founder and co-director of the Théâtre de l'Uchronie in Lyon since 2013, she naturally comes to portray theatrical and choreographic pieces, and to tell the dance, in particular within the Maison de la Danse de Lyon and during cultural events such as the Lyon Dance Biennale.
Centre chorégraphique national de Nantes
Ambra Senatore, Italian choreographer, has set down at the Center Chorégraphique National de Nantes since January 1, 2016 after years of artistic and geographic travel, which have fueled his work. She, who has made humans her privileged creative soil, imagined a lively and vibrant place in which everyone can find a place: artists of course, but also residents, amateurs, partners of Nantes. A place full of creativity and openness, like an invitation to a journey to invent and share, together.
