Didier Theron

Born in Béziers, lives and works in Montpellier. Self-taught, he trained in dance with Merce Cunningham, Dominique Bagouet, Trisha Brown and followed the teachings of Zen master Harada Tangen in Japan.

In parallel with this creative work, Didier Théron rooted his company in the popular district of La Mosson in Montpellier, where he created, in 2004, with the help of local authorities, the Espace Bernard Glandier, a place dedicated to research and to choreographic creation.
His choreographic research explores the notions of writing, spelling and measurement, focuses on the language of the body, appealing to the controlled impulse, to the raw but refined line, to the inscription of the composition in space, to reveal the dance as a total word. It leads to connections with literature, visual arts and sound.      

The Mannheim

In February 2021, an extraordinary digital project took place at EinTanzHaus: With eight dancers from France, Germany and Poland, choreographers Didier Théron and Michèle Murray worked for a week on the theme THE EUROPEANS. What was special about this was that they were not in one place, but danced, spoke and discussed via video conference in Mannheim, Warsaw and Montpellier. But is collaboration possible under these conditions? THE MANNHEIM PIECES summarizes the diverse experiences from this unusual time.
