Choreographer, dancer, teacher, and dance recorder in Laban notation, Dominique Brun has danced since the 1980. She co-founded the Quatuor Albrecht Knust (1994-2003), an ensemble with whom she worked on the recreation of dances from the historical repertoire, based on scores established in Labanotation.
Dominique Brun has pursued for a number of years a systematic exploration of the sources of major works in the history of dance. Through this work, it is possible to reevaluate the impact of these pieces on the genealogy of modernity in dance, and to bring face-to-face these historical sources with contemporary interpretation. Moreover, through collaboration with modern performers, it is possible to contrast history and creation, past and present, and memory and the updating of a piece of work. She conceived and executed The Faun - A Film or the Making of the Archive (2007). She reconstituted for the film Coco Chanel & Igor Stravinsky by Jan Kounen (2010) dance extracts of Nijinsky’s The Rite of Spring (1913) from the period’s archives, and choreographed successively the creation Sacre #197 (2012) then the historical reconstitution Sacre #2 (2014) through which she brought together a diptych of 30 contemporary dancers. The creation of Jeux, trois études pour sept paysages aveugles in 2017, concluded the series of creations consecrated to Vaslav Nijinski’s oeuvre.
She created in 2019 Peter and the Wolf, a choregraphed fable for both children and adults after Prokofiev’s work. She’s working on a new program dedicated to Bronislava Nijinska with François Chaignaud and orchestra Les Siecles, that will be premiered in 2020 at Paris’s Philharmonie , in the frame of Festival d’Automne.
