Jean-Claude Gallotta

Following a stint in New York in 1979 where he discovered the world of post-modern dance (Merce Cunningham, Yvonne Rainer, Lucinda Childs, Trisha Brown, Steve Paxton, Stuart Sherman, etc.), Jean-Claude Gallotta founds in 1984 the Groupe Émile Dubois in collaboration with Mathilde Altaraz in Grenoble (France), now Centre Chorégraphique National.

Based from the very beginning at the Maison de la Culture (which he managed from 1986 to 1989), he has created over 60 choreographies there which have been presented worldwide, including Ulysse, Mammame, Docteur Labus, Presque Don Quichotte, les Larmes de Marco Polo, 99 duos, Trois générations, Cher Ulysse, Daphnis é Chloé... He has also choreographed several pieces for the Ballet de l’Opéra de Lyon and for the Ballet de l’Opéra de Paris. Invited to Shizuoka (Japan) by the producer Tadashi Suzuki, he created and managed a Japanese company there from 1997 to 2000.

After l’Homme à tête de chou in 2009 (based on an Alain Bashung's adaptation of Serge Gainsbourg's album), Gallotta creates in 2011 le Sacre du printemps (Chaillot). In late 2012, he presented Racheter la mort des gestes - Chroniques chorégraphiques 1 at the Théâtre de la Ville and subsequently at MC2. In early 2013, the re-creation of Yvan Vaffan (a work from 1984) gave him the opportunity to continue his repertory work whilst also continuing with his own creative activities.

In October 2013 he co-created l’Histoire du soldat by Stravinsky and el Amor brujo by Manuel de Falla with conductor Marc Minkowski and director Jacques Osinski. In 2015, he presented The Rite and its Revolutions at the Philharmonie de Paris and gave the first performance of The Stranger, based on the novel by Albert Camus at the MC2 in Grenoble. During the 2014-2015 season he presented Sacre et ses révolutions (including Jonchaies de Xenakis and Six pièces pour orchestre, op.6 by Webern (Hommage to Angela Davis) at the Philharmonie de Paris, and in June, he created L'Étranger from the novel by Albert Camus at the MC2: Grenoble.

He opens the season 2015-2016 with My Rock at the MC2 and the Théâtre du Rond-Point in Paris.

On December 31, 2015, Jean-Claude Gallotta left his role as Direction of the Center Chorégraphique national de Grenoble.

Today, with the recovered forces of his Company, which is named as it once was - Groupe Émile Dubois, he continues his journey. In association with the Théâtre du Rond Point as well as the MC2: Grenoble, and housed within its walls, he creates new works and continues to explore the choreographic field.

This year, Groupe Émile Dubois has presented its new creation 2016, Volver, at the Biennale de la danse de Lyon, at the Théâtre national de Chaillot, and will be touring throughout France, as well as also touring three other shows My RockL'Étranger , L'Enfance de Mammame.
