Born in 1988 in Geneva, Mélanie Gobet is a dancer, a performer, a choreographer and a dance teacher. Based in Romont, she works in Lausanne, Fribourg and Berne.
She trained at contemporary dance at London Contemporary Dance School (The Place) and dance research at Université Paris 8. She is currently studying performance at Bern University of the Arts.
She created her dance company mg2+cie in 2013 and have choreographed different staged performances and site specific pieces.
In her work, her main interests are disparate, yet interconnected:
- The question of gazing, by site specific settings and by the way the dance is staged and looked at;
- Mathematical and repetitive patterns;
- Autobiographical material;
- Humorous, second degree and ironic way of being.
