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.
