Olivier Besson

Over the years, Olivier has had the pleasure of collaborating and performing improvisational duets with many individuals. That list includes Chris Aiken, Jane Shockley, Cathy Young, Debra Bluth, Lisa Schmidt and Liz Roncka in the US along with Min Shen Ku (Taiwan), Emmanuelle Pepin (France) and Toshiko Oiwa (Japan). He currently performs with Chandra Cantor. He is a full time faculty in the Dance Division of the Boston Conservatory.
Class Description: Improv Partnering will introduce improvisational strategies (scores) to help us explore and increase our capacity to collaborate in real time. We will draw inspiration from multiple sources including contact improvisation, martial arts, ballroom, rock climbing and nature’s own flocking behavior.
