With Rendez-Vous dance Mathieu creates projects to tell the past and current stories of LGBTQ+ communities.
Mathieu’s choreography calls upon intimate emotions to manifest with great physicality, intricacy and virtuosity. Starting from personal curiosities, the work meets the audience in a universal and accessible way.
We create inclusive projects for everyone to feel involved and welcome. Rendez-Vous is a vessel for the expression of a choreographic voice articulating values of inclusivity, diversity and harmony.
Our practice of dance has no age, no gender, no ethnicity or cultural boundaries: it is easy to access.
By inviting the audience to become participant, opening the creative process to communities, delivering dance classes to adult beginners we aim to make people feel better with the practice of dance.
The company's activity also includes delivery of training and mentorship sessions for different organisations and artists, creation of new contemporary dance work and touring of existing repertoire.
