About

Carolyn Carlson sees herself more as a "visual poet" than a choreographer. Discover her world in this portrait.

A native of California, Carolyn Carlson is above all a nomad. Trained at the University of Utah, she went to New York to join Alwin Nikolais' company as a soloist from 1965 to 1971. She has developed Nikolais' ideas throughout her career, placing great importance on movement. She arrived in France in 1971, where she created her successful play, Rituel pour un Rêve mort, performed in Avignon in 1972, in which she displayed her world with a focus on philosophy and spirituality in motion.
