Camille Mutel is a dancer and choreographer. Trained in the dance training PMD by Hervé Diasnas, Mutel had an artistic shock and revelation when she was 20 years old while watching a butoh performance. This discovery definitively changed her approach towards the body and movement. A couple years later she found herself alongside Masaki Iwana, in a critically acclaimed solo, Le Sceau de Kali. For a period of time Mutel worked in alternative circuits in France, Italy, and Japan, working in striptease and posing for photographers. Having confronted this way of looking at the other, the relationship to oneself and to others turned into a main question in her artistic research and led her to collaborate with choreographers such as Cosmin Manolescu and Matthieu Hocquemiller. It was her solo Effraction de l’Oubli in 2010 that allowed her to cross the threshold over into institutional recognition with her company Li(luo). With each subsequent creation, Mutel has surrounded herself with collaborators with which she has had veritable human and artistic encounters, and with whom she has progressively affirmed the radical nature of her choreographic language.
Camille Mutel is laureate of the Villa Kujoyama (2019) and of the writing grant of the Fondation Beaumarchais – SACD.
