I'm thrilled to have been selected as one of The Place's 2018 Choreodrome artists to start developing my new work The Passion of Andrea 2 (working title). Equally thrilled to present this idea in an Open Studio Sharing at the Tanzmesse in Düsseldorf this summer (come along if you're there, 31st, 17h30), and thrilled thrilled thrilled to have the inspiring KLAP...

I am holding a workshop audition in London to meet performers for a new funded project in 2018-2019, The Passion of Andrea 2 (w.t.). Central to this playful and theatrical project will be the notion of confusion in an urgent situation. The workshop will be an opportunity to experience how I work and get a taste of my upcoming project. It...

BOUGE at KLAP Maison pour la danse ended with an inspiring sharing. From the theme that was given as a starting point: Là où la légèreté est donnée, la gravité ne manque pas (Maurice Blanchot),  we jumped into an exploration of how voice can invade the musical realm of a scene and vice versa, and a little story emerged, all...

Tomorrow the carrefour BOUGE officially starts at the Maison KLAP pour la danse in Marseilles and I'm looking forward to being one of the three choreographers chosen for this year's edition, alongside Mathilde Monfreux and Sylvère Lamotte. 10 days of meeting and collaborating with dancers, composers, and technicians - here we GO! Thank you Maison KLAP, The Place London and...

I have just been selected as one of seven artists to create work for the Luxembourgish Pavillion Experience in Dubai 2020 - let's see if I can make 50 dancers jump from the roof! Favourite quote about the project: "Disneyland in Arabia."...

I feel so happy, encouraged and honoured that I have won the "Lëtzebuerger Danzpräis" / Luxembourgish Dance Award 2017, "to recognize the merit of a courageous young choreographer, whose singular artistic approach develops a sincere and original message"! YAY! "Le jury du Lëtzebuerger Danzpräis a retenu Simone Mousset comme lauréate du Lëtzebuerger Danzpräis 2017, "un prix pour reconnaître le mérite d’une jeune...

It is done! We have performed and enjoyed BAL in the last week of April, with wonderful feedback and attention from both audiences and reviews! It was a exhausting and long way, and I am glad this first rush is over. Let's see whether the piece will find its place in the future also, now that everyone knows the truth. And for...

Elisabeth and myself rushed off to London after an inspiring showing of work in progress of BAL in Luxembourg earlier this month, and had a great time Impressing the Grand Duke at the Resolution 2017 Festival at The Place. What better platform to talk about the lives and times of emerging choreographers? We think it went down well and we look...

This week we started work on my new creation BAL, in the studio with my tried and trusted collaborator Elisabeth Schilling.  Taking the form of an absurd family saga, BAL explores questions of identity, origin, and folk dancing. For the moment, we are still writing, writing, writing - are we writing a novel? Are we writing the chronicles of the Luxembourgish family the...

Impressions from an amazing trip - in a list: Flight, flight. Embassy and waiting, photographing, waiting. An endless car drive with famous strangers. No strangers anymore, in the freezing air at the border of Belarus, all foreigners are the same. A concrete block of a soviet hotel, with a huge, deserted, stony entrance hall, wide and empty corridors, thick, wooden, rattling doors, brown and yellow wallpaper...
