Rivière, Valérie

Valérie Rivière has first trained in classical dance and turned later to contemporary dance.

From her first training, she has kept a disposition for excellence. During the time she spent studying in Brussels, at Mudra, she developed an open-mindedness that favours the use of other artistic forms.


She began studying dance at the Conservatoire National de Région de Bordeaux between 1974 and 1978. Then, she went to the School of Princess Grace at Monte-Carlo under the direction of Marika Besobrasova and finally entered Mudra Brussel, school of Maurice Béjart, to become a professional performer. While training in Belgium, she discovered a deep attachment to choreography and a strong interest in other artistic disciplines.


Back in France in 1987, she founded Paul les Oiseaux with Olivier Clémentz.


During the four years following the creation of the company, they both focused their work on experimenting and learned to deconstruct and rebuild a new language that has allowed them to acquire a distinctive artistic identity. In 1992, Valérie Rivière became the only choreographer of the company.


Since then, she has directed twenty five productions, every one of them exploring a different visual universe.

Picq, Charles

Author, filmmaker and video artist Charles Picq (1952-2012) entered working life in the 70s through theatre and photography. A- fter resuming his studies (Maîtrise de Linguistique - Lyon ii, Maîtrise des sciences et Techniques de la Communication - grenoble iii), he then focused on video, first in the field of fine arts at the espace Lyonnais d'art Contemporain (ELAC) and with the group « Frigo », and then in dance.
   On creation of the Maison de la Danse in Lyon in 1980, he was asked to undertake a video documentation project that he has continued ever since. During the ‘80s, a decade marked in France by the explosion of contemporary dance and the development of video, he met numerous artists such as andy Degroat, Dominique Bagouet, Carolyn Carlson, régine Chopinot, susanne Linke, Joëlle Bouvier and regis Obadia, Michel Kelemenis. He worked in the creative field with installations and on-stage video, as well as in television with recorded shows, entertainment and documentaries.

His work with Dominique Bagouet (80-90) was a unique encounter. He documents his creativity, assisting with Le Crawl de Lucien and co-directing with his films Tant Mieux, Tant Mieux and 10 anges. in the 90s he became director of video development for the Maison de la Danse and worked, with the support of guy Darmet and his team, in the growing space of theatre video through several initiatives:
       - He founded a video library of dance films with free public access. This was a first for France. Continuing the video documentation of theatre performances, he organised their management and storage.
       - He promoted the creation of a video-bar and projection room, both dedicated to welcoming school pupils.
       - He started «présentations de saisons» in pictures.
       - He oversaw the DVD publication of Le tour du monde en 80 danses, a pocket video library produced by the Maison de la Danse for the educational sector.

       - He launched the series “scènes d'écran” for television and online. He undertook the video library's digital conversion and created Numeridanse.


His main documentaries are: enchaînement, Planète Bagouet, Montpellier le saut de l'ange, Carolyn Carlson, a woman of many faces, grand ecart, Mama africa, C'est pas facile, Lyon, le pas de deux d'une ville, Le Défilé, Un rêve de cirque.

He has also produced theatre films: Song, Vu d'ici (Carolyn Carlson), Tant Mieux, Tant Mieux, 10 anges, Necesito and So schnell, (Dominique Bagouet), Im bade wannen, Flut and Wandelung (Susanne Linke), Le Cabaret Latin (Karine Saporta), La danse du temps (Régine Chopinot), Nuit Blanche (Abou Lagraa), Le Témoin (Claude Brumachon), Corps est graphique (Käfig), Seule et WMD (Françoise et Dominique Dupuy), La Veillée des abysses (James Thiérrée), Agwa (Mourad Merzouki), Fuenteovejuna (Antonio Gades), Blue Lady revistied (Carolyn Carlson).

Paul Les Oiseaux

Founded in 1987, the company borrows its name from the Renaissance painter Paolo Uccello, and thus claims its kinship with the Italian master, in the obsession with perspective, scenography, as well as the graphic inscription of bodies on the tray. We can also detect there a tribute to the ceaselessly renewed migrations of birds, similar to the incessant journeys of the dancers, and to the light traces forgotten in space by the choreographic movements.
