Our Story

Juliette Rahon & Co is a company for dance and interdisciplinary arts based in Geneva, Switzerland.

Juliette Rahon & Co is founded in 2016 in Leipzig, from the encounter of the choreographer Juliette Rahon and the cellist Léonard Fey-Maibach, during the creation of the piece "Nomade" at the LOFFT theater in Leipzig Germany. In 2018 the International Bach Festival Leipzig asks the choreographer and the cellist to create a new piece “La Contredanse en Assonance“ on the Bach Cello Suite nr.2 for the festival. The same year the Opera Leipzig invites Juliette Rahon & Co to perform again « Nomade ».

2018-2019 the Ensemble collaborates with the world renowned flutist Sébastian Jacot and creates the piece « 1001 Leben » which is nominated for the « Saxonian Dance Award » and the « Ursula-Cain-award ».

During the season 2019-2020 the Company is invited at the « Abundance International Dance Festival » in Karlstad (Sweden), at the « Lystaleypurin Art Festival » in the Faroe Island and at the « Bethlehem International Performing Arts Festival » in Palestine. Juliette Rahon & Co is invited by the prominent cellist Julius Berger to present the duet « BOW&DY » at the « Zukunftsforum Cello » festival in Augsburg, Germany.

Currently Juliette and Léonard created the world premiere of « La Dernière Sarabande - ou l’obsolescence programmée », a trilogy piece which innovates the 6th Bach Cello Suite. The premiere was livestreamed in November 2020 in Leipzig. More recently the Company is working on the second volume of the trilogy.

Since her choreographic debut at the „Conservatoire de Lyon“, Juliette has always liked to get inspired by the body language of the musicians. She likes to transform the instrument, to include the musicians into the choreography, in order to search for playful and poetic pictures. Her artistic sensibility follows a multidisciplinary art form by merging dance with music, sing and theater. Her inspiration begins very often from the music emotions, which own a huge place in Juliette’s work. Indeed she is always searching and looking for new colors into the musical interpretation, which has a direct impact into the movements qualities. To Juliette is very important to try to take out the best of each artist’s talent with whom she works with. She pushes her team to rake risks, to explore the maximum their capacities in order to enrich the choreographic process.
