Having trained at the CCN Montpellier, Maud Le Pladec performed for several choreographers, namely Georges Appaix, Loïc Touzé, Mathilde Monnier, Mette Ingvartsen and Boris Charmatz. In 2010, her first work Professor was awarded the best newcomer prize by French critics. In 2013, she won the Institut français Hors les Murs programme and went on to conduct research on American post-minimalist music in New York, the springboard for her work Concrete with the ensemble Ictus. In 2016, she worked on the stage direction of Thomas Jolly’s Eliogabalo for the Opéra national de Paris (music directed by Leonardo García Alarcón). She was appointed director of the CCN Orléans in 2017. In 2021, she presented Static Shot with the CCN — Ballet de Lorraine, and counting stars with you (musique femmes), a creation dedicated to female musical heritage. In 2022, she created Silent Legacy at the Festival d’Avignon.

“I’m looking to share what I’ve learned and to build on the foundations of my artistic and choreographic approach. Both by the transmission of my repertoire and also by leading master classes on dance composition. How do you draw up a project intention? How do you give each project its own colour and substance? What methods and procedures can you invent or use? What is the relationship between music and movement? How can we use music to organise space and time, or to develop dramatic intensity. How do we give rise to movements, vocabulary? What about the syntax, the organisation of movements?”
