Chaignaud, François

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 body stretched between sensual demand and the power of the voice, as  well as a convergence of multiple, heterogenous historical references –  from erotic literature (Aussi Bien Que Ton Cœur Ouvre Moi Les Genoux, 2008) to the more sacred arts.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).

Chaillot-Théâtre national de la Danse

The Théâtre National de Chaillot is  one of the five French national theatres (public institutions whose  missions are defined by the State) and the only one to have a project  built around and based on dance. Under the double supervision of the  Ministry of Culture and Communication and the Ministry of Budget, it has  been directed since 2011 by the choreographer and dancer Didier  Deschamps.

The legend of Chaillot

Installed at the heart of the Palais de Chaillot, the Théâtre  National de Chaillot, that became in 2016 Chaillot – National Theatre of  Dance, is one of the most prestigious cultural institutions of Paris,  not only for the unique place it has in the history of performing arts –  namely with the great adventure of the National Popular Theatre founded  by Firmin Gémier, then carried and developed by the mythical  personality of Jean Vilar – but also in that of France and the world as  it is in the big theatre room that the Universal Declaration of Human  Rights was signed on the 10th of December 1948. An  exceptional venue in the capital, the theatre can welcome each night  more than 1 600 spectators, in its three rooms (Salle Jean Vilar of 1  200 seats, Salle Firmin Gémier of 390 seats, Studio Maurice Béjart of  100 seats). Its Grand Foyer facing the Trocadéro Fountain, the Eiffel  Tower and the Champ-de-Mars, permanently offers one of the most famous  views in the world. The public spaces of the theatre are also host to an  important collection of sculptures, paintings, frescoes and pastels  signed by the greatest artists of their time: Paul Belmondo, Louis  Billotey, Pierre Bonnard, Maurice Brianchon, Roger Chapelain-Midy,  Maurice Denis, Othon Friesz, Henri Laurens, Aristide Maillol as well as  Édouard Vuillard.
