Portrait de Catherine Legrand

Since meeting Dominique Bagouet in 1982, Catherine Legrand has passed on his repertoire to various companies through the association Les Carnets Bagouet. She has sometimes taught in national dance schools and educational institutions. In 2012, she re-created Jours Étranges by Dominique Bagouet for a group of teenage dancers in collaboration with A. K. Leskop and Le Triangle, a dance association in Rennes. She also created a new version of this piece in 2016 for an all-woman cast of six professional dancers.

From 2017 to 2019, she danced in Hervé Robbe’s new work, A New Landscape, assisted Philippe Découflé on tour and created a duet with Brigitte Chataignier, called Un Tracé. Legrand collaborated on Engelsam, en jeu by Katja Fleig and directed a new project with the actor Olivier Ferec, called Suite pour Tango.

She revived So Schnell by Dominique Bagouet for the Montpellier Danse 40 Bis festival in September 2020. Between 2020 and 2022, she performed in Distances by Ashley Chen and Sollicitudes by Hervé Robbe. She also assisted Emmanuelle Huynh in the creation of Kraanerg.
