Eve Magot is a French choreographer and dancer. In 2011, she co-founded the cooperative production platform La Fronde with choreographer Nina Santes.
Active as a performer since 2009, Eve has collaborated alongside artists such as Stéphanie Aubin, Odile Duboc, Myriam Gourfink, Philippe Grandrieux, Yann Marussich, Julie Nioche, Agathe Pfauwadel & Laurie Giordano, Pascal Rambert, Alban Richard, Nina Santes, and Perrine Valli.
The three pieces The 36th Chamber (2011), Behind the Green Door (2012) and Some Paradises (2015) together constitute a first cycle of works around gravity, exploring the relationship between the environment and our behaviours, our capacity to cohabit and cooperate, and the potential we have to free ourselves by playing with constraints, norms and limitations.
In 2016, Eve co-created the duo piece Magma’s Promises with the French rapper Casey as part of Sujets à Vifs at Festival d’Avignon.
In 2018, she created The Sweet Way for the Reunionese parkour group New Gravity.
As part of a 2017-19 partnership with Théâtre d’Arles, she created The Cyclone Pursuit (2019), as well as a cycle of weekends of artistic practices and reflections on cooperation led by La Fronde
In 2020, Leave Room was created with the doctoral researcher Ludivine Demol as part of the La Beauté du Geste programme (2020) at Théâtre Brétigny. The piece has not been performed yet due to the pandemic.
In 2021, Eve created To the Point, a piece for three performers that twists masculinities and pelvises, and began work on Time for nothing, a unique performance for two people to take the time to contemplate each other.
Alongside Nina Santes and La Fronde, they create and curate the mini festival of artistic practices and performances THE NIGHT and work for the sharing of spaces and resources offered by the institutions with which they collaborate. Next edition will be in February 2022 at Manège de Reims, France.
Eve also works with local audiences to develop artistic projects in connection with her research, including for participatory creation project (Some Other Paradises), and through various interventions in institutions, hospitals and schools.
