Born in Rennes, François Chaignaud studied dance from the age of 6. In 2003 he earned his degree at the Conservatoire National Supérieur de Danse in Paris, working with, among others, the choreographers Boris Charmatz, Emmanuelle Huynh, Alain Buffard and Dominique Brun. Ranging from He's One that Goes to Sea for Nothing but to Make him sick (2004) to Думи мої (2013), he has created many performance pieces, using different forms of dance and voice, in a variety of venues, showing inspiration from many different inspirations. We see in his work the possibility of a body stretched between sensual demand and the power of the voice, as well as a convergence of multiple, heterogenous historical references – from erotic literature (Aussi Bien Que Ton Cœur Ouvre Moi Les Genoux, 2008) to the more sacred arts.
He is also a historian and has published at PUR L’Affaire Berger- Levrault : le féminisme à l’épreuve (1898-1905). His historical curiosity has led him to initiate a number of interesting artistic collaborations, notably with the legendary drag queen Rumi Missabu, of the Cockettes, with the cabaret artist Jérôme Marin (Sous l'ombrelle, 2011, which resurrected some forgotten melodies from the early 20th century), with the artist Marie Caroline Hominal (Duchesses, 2009), with the fashion designers Romain Brau and Charlie Le Mindu, the plastician Theo Mercier, and the photographer Donatien Veismann …
He is currently doing research on polyphonic repertory (Georgian, pre-Christian, and medieval).
