RISE – Artistic Direction – Kevin Pilette

Kevin Pilette

A versatile dancer and choreographer, Kevin Pilette’s career has been nurtured by a host of great encounters (Franco Dragone, Luc Petit, Kamel Ouali, Mourad Merzouki, Farid Berki, Afid Zekhnini, etc.). They have enabled him to develop as a human being and to acquire a wealth of experience in the cultural sector and in urban dance. Whether alone or in duet with Saléna Baudoux, Kevin has multiplied his projects, from the biggest French theaters to TV shows.

These multiple experiences have enabled her to develop a complete vision of interpretation and creation, as well as a concrete network in the dance sector and more generally in urban dance.
