Josette Baïz has been teaching contemporary dance since 1978 in Aix-en-Provence, where she created her first choreography for young dancers. After a decisive residence for a school in the northern districts of Marseille, she set up the Groupe Grenade in 1992, bringing together over thirty young dancers working in a cross-cultural perspective, which later developed into a company of professional interpreters. Hommage à Trisha Brown is an ensemble of three pieces paying tribute to the great postmodernist choreographer Trisha Brown, who greatly marked Josette Baïz’s work. For FranceDance UK, Josette will collaborate with ACE Dance and Music to make a new transmission of this work with young dancers from across Birmingham’s diverse communities.
