Hervé Robbe is a choreographer and dancer. His artistic approach is nourished by and questions the bodily and aesthetic issues of postmodernity in dance and he has enriched his thought through  cultural confrontations, in particular in the USA and Japan. He was the director of the Centre Chorégraphique National du Havre. His work combines choreography with the universe or techniques of architecture, visual arts, videography, sound and technologies. He has created over fifty shows, films and choreographic installations, which have been displayed in France and abroad. Since 2013, he has been the artistic director of the Pôle Création Chorégraphique of the Fondation Royaumont.

Michelle Agnes Magalhaes was born in Brazil. Her music explores the limitations between gesture and writing, improvisation and composition. She started out as a pianist, and studied at the University of Sao Paulo, the Accademia Musicale Chigiana in Sienna and the Conservatoire in Latina. She joined the Analysis of Musical Practice team at Ircam —STMS as part of the project GEMME (Geste musical: modèles et expériences) and pursued postdoctoral research into composition titled “À double entente: l’invention du dialogue écriture – improvisation” [Double meaning: the invention of the writing – improvisation dialogue]. She has worked as a composer with a large number of ensembles.

Playground & Entrelacs 
The title of this workshop is also the name that could be given to the scenographic and sonic set-up which is on offer as a playground and as multiple experimentations between dance and music. It is a sensitive exploration of attention, dialogues, impacts, interferences and the possible connections between dance and music. It is a space favourable to the invention of visual and sonic scores which are embodied and resonate though the presence of artists from the choreographic field and musicians from 2e2M.

Taste for music listening and curiosity for relationship between dance and music.
