Alexandre Castres

Alexandre was trained successively at the Conservatoire National de Danse in Nantes, the Conservatoire de Musique et de Danse in La Rochelle and at the Acting Studio, Lyon. This double training, plus his liking for working with video, led him to work as a dancer, actor and video director. In particular, he worked with the contemporary dance company L'Esquisse and the choreographers Claude Brumachon (Centre Chorégraphique National de Nantes), Dominique Petit, Samir Akika and, between 2001 and 2006, Pina Bausch at the Tanztheater in Wuppertal. At the same time, he also choreographs his own pieces and has made four films, one of which is a feature-length film.
