Lara Barsacq

Lara Barsacq is choreographer, dancer and actress. She likes to mix the tracks between archives, fictions, incarnation and documentary. Starting from the story, the autobiographical rituals and the material of the real, she tries to imagine dances, metaphors and to switch into the incarnation. Trained at the CNSM in Paris in contemporary dance, she joined the Batsheva Company with choreographer Ohad Naharin, between 1992 and 1996. From 1994 to 2004, she devotes herself to choreography, whether for her own projects or at the request of the CNSM in Paris and professional companies like Ensemble Batsheva. After 15 years as an interpreter, Lara Barsacq returned to choreography, creating the personal projects Lost in Ballets russes (2018), IDA don’t cry me love (2019) and Fruit Tree (2021). Charleroi danse is committed to producing, presenting and supporting Lara Barsacq’s works from 2020 until the end of 2022. From 2024 untill 2028, Lara Barsacq will be artist in residence at Théâtre de Liège.
