Born in Versailles, France, in 1988, Flora Détraz trained in classical dance and then studied literature at university, before joining the dancer-choreographer training programme of the National Choreography Centre (CCN) of Rillieux-la-Pape in 2010, under Maguy Marin’s direction. She continued her choreographic research at the PEPCC, Forum Dança, in Lisbon. In the course of her training, she had the opportunity to meet artists such as Marlene Monteiro Freitas, Meredith Monk, Meg Stuart, Vera Mantero and Lia Rodrigues, who influenced her work. Since 2013, she has focused her artistry on the link between voice and movement. In 2012, she created Peuplements, a piece for four opera singers, inspired by a Samuel Beckett short story. In 2014, she continued on the opera-singer theme in her first solo, Gesächt. Then in 2016 she created another solo, Tutuguri, in which the body becomes a sounding board. In 2018, she presented Muyte Maker, with four wildly coiffed nymphs dancing and singing medieval and Renaissance-inspired ditties. In 2021, Détraz created Glottis, with three bird-like figures trapped in haunting scenes. At the 2023 Biennale de la danse de Lyon she is presenting her latest creation, HURLULA, a diptych composed of a film and a performance-concert centred on the act of screaming.
