After graduating from the National Conservatoire of Paris Léa Poiré wanted to explore the other side of the stage. She studied research in choreographic arts at Paris 8 University, then completed an MA in cultural management at La Sorbonne and Dauphine Universities. She then took off for Asia and Oceania on a one-year trip that reshaped her relation to dance: she started to imagine dance as subjects, words, questions. On her return she started to collaborate with choreographer Tatiana Julien and Le Regard du Cygne, a dance venue in Paris. At the same time, she began writing for Mouvement magazine. Currently in charge of the dance section for this French multidisciplinary magazine, she also contribute to Repères cahiers de la danse, and to write for various dance venues such as L’échangeur CDCN, l’Atelier de Paris CDCN and La Manufacture CDCN.
