Latifa Laâbissi lives and works in Rennes. Mixing genres in her work, she evokes an anthropological landscape in which stories, characters and voices stand out sharply. The beginnings of modern dance have inspired an aesthetics that is not abstract, but in which we notice a gestuality that is rooted in the blurring of genres and social positions. In 2001 she created Phasmes, a play that is haunted by the phantoms of Dore Hoyer, Valeska Gert and Mary Wigman. She also returned to the German dance scene of the 1920s with La part du rite and Écran somnambule. The use of the voice and the face as a vehicle to refer to minorities becomes inextricably linked to the act of dancing itself in Self-portrait camouflage (2006), Histoire par celui qui la raconte (2008) and Loredreamsong (2010).
