Yasmine Hugonnet

Yasmine Hugonnet is a dancer and choreographer. She is interested in the relationship between form, image and sensation, the germination of imaginary, the (de)-construction of the choreographic language, the process of incarnation and appropriation. In recent years she has been deepening her work on the movement of attention, the idea of posture as a reservoir and, through her choreographic process, developing a practice of ventriloquism.
From 3 to 6 years old she lived in Mali. Back in Switzerland she started dancing ballet and at fifteen moved to Paris and studied at National Superior Conservatory of Dance in Paris. She participates in series of collective performative experiences, particularly in Taiwan (2001-2003). She dances for the choreographers Jean-Marc Heim (CH) in 2004-2005, Jo Strömgren (NO) in 2003-2004 and Luc Petton (FR) in 2001. She researches upon the notion of « Presences » in the Master Degree in Choreography called « Dance Unlimited » in Netherlands (2003-2005). In 2006, Laureate by European Pépinières for Young Artists, she went to Slovenia for an artist residency where she created « RE-PLAY », a trio that was invited at many international festivals. In 2009 she founded her own Company Arts Mouvementés in Lausanne and then she produces three solos.
In 2015 and 2016 she is invited at the Venice Biennale. In 2017 Yasmine Hugonnet is awarded by Swiss Dance Award (dance creation) with Le Récital des postures. In November 2018, she created a new work for three dancers, CHRO NO LO GI CAL at Théâtre de Vidy Lausanne and at l’Atelier de Paris Carolyn Carlson.
