After studying psychology, Dominique Guilhaudin developed a passion for working on motor skills, which she explored through dance. She founded the Gambit company in 1997, and systematically linked creating work and cultural outreach. Influenced by the advertising and visual worlds, her choreographic aesthetic often has graphic elements. Her pieces spring from her imagination, which she exploits rather than taps into, and are inspired by social phenomena and impactful events. Though sometimes critical and even acerbic, her perspective also has a humorous streak.
