Michard, Alain

Alain Michard was born in 1963, he lives in Rennes, in France.

Alain Michard is a choreographer and visual artist. Starting with dance as his ‘roots’, his work today involves leading a wide range of different artistic projects, using a variety of artistic media (music, film, photography, writing).
Alain Michard collaborates regularly with other artists. He also invites local people and non-professionals to participate in the work he creates.

A common thread in his work is the theme of wandering and journeys, and the search for a community: "BING", based on texts by Beckett, "Parkinson" (2007-2013). Some pieces are designed for public spaces, and explore perception, and the imaginary essence of towns and landscapes: "Promenades blanches" (2006-2016), "Se fondre" (2012), "Caravane", ...
Another important focus of his work is research on the notion of a collective history of art, based on living memory and documents: "École ouverte", "J’ai tout donné", "Mon Histoire avec la danse", "La carpe et le lapin",…

Alain Michard supports and produces other artists (Theo Kooijman, Laurent Pichaud, Mickaël Phelippeau, Alice Gautier ...), in his role as artistic director of different festivals, residencies and events, such as À domicile in Guissény (2007-2009).
His role as producer allows him to support young artists at the beginning of their careers. The passing on of knowledge is important for him, and his pedagogical work is an integral part of, and articulates with, his creative work, which is open to artists, students and non-professionals.

As a performer he has worked principally for Odile Duboc, Marco Berrettini, Boris Charmatz, Xavier Marchand (theatre) and Judith Cahen (cinema).
He has collaborated on various different projects with other artists, including: Nicolas Floc’h, Mathias Poisson, Jocelyn Cottencin, Stalker, and choreographers Mustafa Kaplan, Loïc Touzé...
He has received awards from the Villa Kujoyama-Kyoto (2001) and the Villa Médicis Hors les murs-Istanbul (2009).
