Dance Company

Compagnie Olivier Dubois (COD) was created in 2007. It is currently in residence at Centquatre in Paris, where its director and choreographer has been an associate artist since 2012.

Creation & Dissemination

From 2018 to 2020, the Company’s programme will be revolving around 2 original creations and 1 piece from the repertoire, alternating between light forms and group pieces: Pour sortir au jour (Coming Forth by Day), a solo performed by Olivier Dubois (2018); Tropismes (Tropisms), a piece for 9 performers (spring 2019); and Révolution (Revolution), an emblematic piece from the Company’s repertoire, scheduled for 2020.

Audience outreach, both in France and internationally, is a significant part of the Company’s work, which aims to present new creations as well as key works from its repertoire such as Tragédie (Tragedy) and Auguri.

Mediation & Amateur Dancers

The Company pays particular attention to the inclusion of amateur dancers, as witness the numerous workshops designed for a wide range of audiences (junior high school and high school students, young adults, etc.). One of the distinctive features of these workshops is that they aim to involve amateur dancers in the creative process leading up to pieces such as Mille et une dances (Thousand and One Dances), created during the 2017 Nuit Blanche in Paris, or Origami, which engaged with more than 1,000 lower grade and high school students from Roubaix.

Created by the Company in 2015, Les Mémoires d’un seigneur (Memoirs of a Lord) is aimed at amateur dancers performing with a changing choir of 40 men.

Being hosted by Centquatre enables the Company to consider new public outreach measures aimed at the local community, schools, colleges, high schools and universities in Île-de-France modelled on its previous experiences with Lycée Technique Hector Guimard and Collège Jean Moulin in Montreuil and Lycée Charles de Gaulle in Rosny-sous-Bois.
