Through his different choreographic scores, Rémy Héritier engages in the resurgencies of spatial and temporal strata, thus excavating the past to get to the present. This archeological dig in a given context, that of his personal story with dance and those of his collaborators, allows him to widen the contours of choreography to intertextuality1 or to the document2, and thus to convoke new gestural poetics.
He teaches regularly in places like the Tanzquartier Wien, at the Arsenic Lausanne, the Ecole Nationale Supérieure du Paysage of Villeneuve d'Ascq and Versailles, Cati Dans in Istanbul, EXERCE, the Centre Chorégraphique National of Montpellier, CNDC d'Angers, Tshek Summer Dance School in Moscow etc. He is also associated artist-researcher at the Ecole Supérieure d'Arts de Clermont Métropole since September 2016.
In 2013, he was laureat of the programme «Hors les Murs» of the Institut Français. For the creation of Here, then in 2015 with the artist and writer Marcelline Delbecq, he received a grant from the FNAGP (Fondation Nationale des Arts Graphiques et Plastiques), from IASPIS (The Swedish Arts Grant Committee) and one from the association Beaumarchais-SACD.
Since 1999, he has danced with Boris Charmatz, DD Dorviller, Christophe Fiat, Philipp Gehmacher, Matthieu Kavyrchine, Jennifer Lacey, Mathide Monnier, Laurent Pichaud, Sylvain Prunenec and Loïc Touzé.
