Emmanuelle Vincent (France, 1978) is educated in theatre and contemporary dance and has been working as a choreographer, director, dancer and pedagogue.
She has a degree in Training of trainers for theatre trades (Bordeaux 3, 1998) and a Master in Performing arts (Sorbonne-Nouvelle, Paris 3, 2002), where she developed her research on The quest for movement in the digital age, directed by Georges Banu. During her course of study, she has been involved in many performances.
She has built her choreographic skills in different countries and places and used a lot of opportunities to travel and meet international artists with various backgrounds. After living in Sydney for a year, she founded t.r.a.n.s.i.t.s.c.a.p.e in 2003 with the artist Pierre Larauza.

As artist in residence at the Maison Folie in Mons she created Call Shop (theatre-dance), which was awarded the Prize of the professional jury at the Via Festival in 2007. The dance performances Chambre(s) d’hôtel and Urban distortions were very successful in terms of audience and tours.
