BLOOM is a live dance and DJ performance. 
BLOOM is another, a stranger, a messenger who intrigues and fascinates with its weirdness. Inspired by the neo-futurist movement, this creature explores the tension between the old and the new. This being in search of identity tries to adapt to its environment and gain independence.
BLOOM is a true predator that deploys all its senses and stratagems to mimic and interpret the musical signals and the sound landscape that unfolds before her. BLOOM is a response to our rapidly evolving world. It questions how technological advancements, societal trends, human interactions in the digital age, such as AI, can influence our perception of time, identity, and reality.

Born in Brest, at seventeen, she enters the CNSMD of Lyon. At 20 years old, she is selected for the D.A.N.C.E. program, under the direction of William Forsythe, Angelin Preljocaj, Wayne Mc Gregor, and Frédéric Flamand. The following seven years are spent in Bergen, Norway, with the national contemporary dance company, Carte Blanche, where she collaborates with Alan Lucien Oyen, Sharon Eyal, Marcos Mauro, Hooman Sharifi and Cristal Pite.

Since 2018, she performs for Lisbeth Gruwez and Leila Ka and has created the CAD Platform dance company together with Guiomar Campos. She has choreographed six pieces : ZOE, Antes, Voyez comme ON dort, The Lunacy, The Rams and BLOOM.
