A businessman and Honorary Consul of the Republic of Mauritius by day. His greatest passion is physical movement. He has been practicing and teaching wushu and qigong for over 30 years. Two-time Polish wushu champion. Has been frequently driving his daughters to dance classes but eventually he got bored with just being the driver and joined the dance class himself. And he keeps dancing. He is most interested in contact improvisation and the Modal Underground technique while collaborating with Thierry Verger.
French dancer, educator and choreographer. Originator of the Modal Underground style. In his work Thierry applies an original and eclectic dance technique he created. He draws on the experiences of old and contemporary dance masters, the martial arts and ritual dance. Modal Underground is a bridge between medieval imagination and contemporary reality. This manner of creating choreography brings together opposites: classic lines with Baroque curves, sensuality and uncontrollability. Thierry collaborates with many famous dance schools and theatres across Europe. He lives and works in Paris.
