Christine Maupetit

Legacy Creative Producer

Christine Maupetit started dancing at a very early age and got herself hooked thanks to the passion of her hometown dance teacher. She pursued professional training at Centre James Carlès (Toulouse, France) and started her career as a professional dancer, working with several companies in France. She had lots of questions about dance and decided to embark on the journey of academic research. She graduated with a MA in Dance Research from Paris 8 University in 2014. She went on to publish articles and reviews for specialised dance magazines.

In 2015, she decided to explore another route in dance and to continue learning so she moved to London and joined Akram Khan Company in June 2016 as Communication and Archives Assistant, and then as Participation Projects Coordinator, and soon took in charge the Legacy department in 2017, and is now the Company’s Legacy Creative Producer. In this role, she develops a wide range of projects both at the national and international level – from education to repertoire transmission, intensive training programmes to bespoke community immersion and engagement projects.

In 2018, she spent two months in New York City at Trisha Brown Dance Company volunteering as Archives Assistant for Trisha Brown Archive.

Christine is driven by her curiosity and her relentless need to understand the world through movement.
