Maud Pizon

Born in 1983, Maud Pizon is a dancer and graduate in Labanotation from the Conservatoire National Supérieur de Musique et de Danse in Paris (2016). She studied contemporary dance with the Coline professional placement dance company in Istres, then with the Nacera Betheza dance company. In parallel, she studied at the Paris 3 university then in the dance department of the Paris 8 university. Since 2008, she has danced regularly for Mié Coquempot while collaborating as a performer with other choreographers including Marion Uguen, Montaine Chevalier, Mélanie Perrier, Dominique Brun and Malika Djardi and for the director Clara le Picard. With her training in Labanotation, Maud Pizon positions her approach between experimental writing and creation, with a strong interest in choreographic writing in the first half of the 20th century. In 2014 she created the solo Une conférence isadorable, a mock danced lecture on the status of dance archives. In collaboration with Jérôme Brabant, Maud Pizon has been undertaking practical research since 2012 on the interpretation of the repertoire of the Denishawn, work for which they won an award from the Hors les Murs programme at the Institut Français in 2016, then from the Bourse Beaumarchais/SACD in 2017. Out of this work, they created the piece A Taste of Ted in November 2017.
