Claire Croizé


Claire graduated from P.A.R.T.S. in 2000 and, after working as an artist in residence at wpZimmer, founded the company Action Scénique in 2008 together with Nada Gambier and Etienne Guilloteau. In 2016, Claire and Etienne continued their close collaboration together under a new name, ECCE. Music, especially live music, plays a prominent role in their work.

The philosophy of ECCE is about movement and physicality; their aim is to show the dancer as a concrete physical individual. Some of Claire’s previous productions include The Farewell (2009, Prix Jardin d’Europe), Primitive (2014), and Flowers (we are) (2019). Her production EVOL was selected by the Theaterfestival and named one of the best dance productions of 2016 by De Morgen.
