French choreographer, performer, and director of Terrain, Boris Charmatz, approaches dance as collaborative possibilities that redraw formal constructs. For him, the stage is a notepad where he drafts organic concepts and then observes and captures the tensions, reactions, and engagements of those involved. Recently appointed as the new Artistic Director of Pina Bausch Tanztheater Wuppertal, he shared with ICONS his creative interests and plans for the future.

- Truly B. - I am inspired by my children and their ability to create without caring about how it is received. They create movement from the heart; their joy in dance is utterly contagious!
- Noncy F. - The epic works of musical, literary and philosophical geniuses and of course- dreams! Dreams- the perfect poetic collision of fiction and nonfiction, personal and universal!
- Briana S. - There isn't a specific person that inspires me but I'm inspired by the human spirit and how it manifests into physical creation. Why? Because it forms our sense of reality, and how we express and connect.
