Emmanuelle Grach

Dancer

Born in 1987 in Caen, France, Emmanuelle Grach started ballet classes aged six at the Regional Conservatoire of Boulogne-Billancourt before turning to contemporary dance. She obtained her Diploma in Contemporary Dance in 2009 at the Conservatoire National Supérieur de Musique et de Danse de Paris. Establishing her own company, she collaborated with the Theater of Vanves in France and was also a finalist at the first edition of the Danse Elargie competition, organised by the Theatre de la Ville (Paris).

In 2012 Grach joined Travelling and Co with Hervé Robbe. In close collaboration with the K. Stockhausen Academy, she worked on Examen, a piece at the end of the first act of Donnerstag aus Licht, and won a first prize with Le Balcon. She has taken part in several projects with Le Balcon, including Lavandier’s opera De la Terreur des Hommes and Le Balcon, a play written by Jean Genet with music by Peter Eötvös.

Grach interpreted Michael in Donnerstag aus Licht at Theater Basel in 2016, in 2018 with Le Balcon and in 2019 with the Holland festival. She was also a soloist in Stockhausen’s Inori in 2018 at the Lucerne Festival and at Philharmonie de Paris.
