Gilles Jobin

Swiss choreographer Gilles Jobin is known for his radical artistic vision and gained international recognition following his 1997 piece A+B=X, presented at Arsenic in Lausanne, and the 1999 work Macrocosm, which premiered at The Place in London. In 2006, he became an associated artist at Bonlieu scène nationale Annecy in France and premiered five works: Double Deux (2006), Text To Speech (2008), Black Swan (2009), Le Chaînon Manquant (The Missing Link) (2010), and Spider Galaxies (2011). He has received commissions from the Ballet du Grand Théâtre in Geneva and the Gulbenkian Ballet. Other works include Braindance (2000), The Moebius Strip (2001), Under Construction (2002), Steak House (2005), and Shaker Loops (2012), a trio set to John Adams’ composition of the same name and commissioned by the Geneva Chamber Orchestra. In addition to his choreographic work, Jobin orchestrates international exchanges, daily training for dancers, educational activities and capacity building, and artistic residencies from his headquarters at Studios 44 in Geneva, as well as projects with countries in the southern hemisphere.
