Irène Ginger & Stockholm Baroque Dancers

Irène Ginger is a dancer and choreographer from Paris, and since 1989 member of Compagnie L'Eventail under the direction of Marie-Geneviève Massé. After a career as a classical and contemporary dancer, Irène started specializing in baroque dance in 1982. She has been a member of the companies Ris et Danceries 1982-1989 (chor. F. Lancelot), l’Eclat des Muses 1983-1992 (chor. C. Bayle), and is now working with Compagnie L’Eventail (chor. M.-G. Massé). Irène holds a dance teacher diploma and is teaching baroque dance at Conservatoire national supérieure de musique et de danse de Paris.

Stockholm Baroque Dancers is a company aspiring to give new relevance and life to the different dance forms of the baroque, while re-establishing the link between them and music, singing, and theatre. Moreover, we hope to allow room for new creations, inspired by and based on the baroque aesthetic. Stockholm Baroque Dancers are involved in artistic, educational, and research activities.

With thanks to the French embassy.
