Biography

Claire Ducreux creates big shows without big infrastructures. Using visual theatre, when she dances she makes us feel as if we were in a bubble. A cloud of sensations surrounded by sweet, magical silence.

Trained as a contemporary dancer at the Lyon Conservatory, she began as a performer working for different French companies. In 1999, she founded the Leandre-Claire company with the Catalan clown Leandre Ribalta, creating shows like “Fragile” (street show) and “Madame et Monsieur” (indoors), with which she received many awards and travelled the world for some years. In 2004, she created the first of her three solo street dance-theatre shows: “De paseo”; in 2008 “Barco de Arena”; and in 2012 “La Sonrisa del Náufrago”. These three “solos” make up the “Globetrotter Trilogy” and she still continues to tour with them.

Besides her solo career, in 2005 she performed as a clown/dancer in the circus show “Rodó” (Catalan National Circus Award-winner 2006) and in 2010, together with Toni Mira, she created and performed the show “En attendant l’inattendu” (Audience Award for the best show at the Manacor Theatre Fair 2010).
