She was co-director at the CCN in Le Havre from 1986 to 1992, and at the CNDC in Angers from 1993 to 2003.

Obadia, Régis

Régis Obadia was born in 1958 in Oran, Algeria. He studied dance from 1976 to 1979 at the Institut des Arts et du Mouvement, run by Françoise et Dominique Dupuy, and was initiated into theatre by Jacques Lecoq. In 1980 he formed the l'Esquisse company with Joëlle Bouvier. Their earliest pieces thrust the pair into the national and international limelight.
Directors of the Centre National de la Danse Contemporaine, Le Havre from 1986 to 1992, they were appointed artistic directors of the CNDC, Angers in 1993, renamed CNDC l'Esquisse, which they directed until 2003.    
Since 1998, Régis Obadia has pursued a solo creative career.    
An important figure in modern dance since the early 1980s, Régis Obadia has marked the memories of those who have seen him with the feverish sensuality and powerful gestures of his pieces. With the founding of his own company in 2003, he asserted his distinctive style and his open-mindedness by working just as happily in the field of theatre as that of pure dance. His regular collaborations with Russia, in partnership with Lisa Wiergasova, have won him prestigious prizes, including a Golden Mask in 2004 for his choreography of “The Rite of Spring”, and a Seagull in 2004 for his direction of “The Idiot” at the Moscow  
Chaika Festival. After “The Rite of Spring” to Stravinsky's music, he composed “Réversibilité” (2005), inspired by Baudelaire's “Les Fleurs du Mal” and “Trois” (2006), set to Schubert's “Death and the Maiden”, performed at the Théâtre Sylvia Montfort, Paris. During this time he also produced the Dominique Mercy documentary “Danse Pina Bausch” (2003), in homage to the iconic German choreographer.
