After training in classical dance, Louise Vanneste took a new direction towards contemporary dance, studying at P.A.R.T.S. A grant from the SPES Foundation (BE) allowed her then to continue her training in New York, notably within the Trisha Brown Dance Company.
Since returning to Europe, she has been working on choreographies, favouring collaborations with artists from disciplines other than dance: Cédric Dambrain and Antoine Chessex for music, Stéphane Broc for video, visual artists and lighting designers Arnaud Gerniers and Benjamin van Thiel and the painter Stephan Balleux.
Her work is presented in Belgium and abroad, at the Kunstenfestivaldesarts, the Holland Festival (Netherlands), Augusti Tantsu Festival (Estonia), Bienal internacional de dança Do Ceara (Brazil), Festival International des Brigittines (Belgium), Fabbrica Europa (Italy), Romaeuropa (Italy) and Hong Kong’s Arts Gallery among others.
Besides her projects on stage she also develops video installations vidéo such as Going West and #1.
