The choreographer Christine Marneffe was born in Bayonne, France and currently lives and works in Berlin. She studied at the Centre national de danse contemporaine in Angers under Michel Reilhac. Her work brings dance into the realm of theatre and the visual arts. In it, scenes of everyday life enquire into the behaviour that is part of our identity. In 1996, her performance Claud(e) was included in the exhibition Le Féminin, le masculin, le sexe de l’art at the Centre Georges Pompidou and was later seen in Dresden (1996), Dijon (1997) and in a new form in Halle (2004) under the title La Cuisine.
