Juliette Rahon

Artistic Director

« My artistic sensibility follows a multidisciplinary art form by merging dance with music, singing and theatre. My inspiration begins very often from the music emotions, which own a huge place in my work. Indeed I'm always searching for new colours into the musical interpretation, which has a direct impact into the movements qualities. »
