Théâtre National de Bretagne
Direction Arthur Nauzyciel




For Latifa Laâbissi, the whole body is involved in dance. Her creations mix genres and redefine formats. For this choreographer, a performer is a totality, an infinite range of hybrid identities. She brings into existence the out-of-field. A beyond of reception that her desire to explode frames and borders reveals. The use of the voice and the face as vehicles for minority states is for her inseparable from the act of dancing. Since 2011, Latifa Laâbissi has been the artistic director of Extension Sauvage, an artistic and educational programme in rural areas (Brittany). On the stage, she gives shape to visions of childhood, excess, monstrosity, beauty and joy.


In 2016, a monograph on all her work was published by Les Laboratoires d'Aubervilliers and Les Presses du réel. She presented her performance Consul et Meshie at the TNB with her faithful collaborator and artist Antonia Baehr and created White Dog during the Festival TNB in 2019. During the season 2021-2022, she proposes La Nuit tombe quand elle veut with Marcelo Evelin and Ghost Party with Manon de Boer, a whirlwind of gestures and signs.
