Yasmine Hugonnet is a Swiss dancer and choreographer. She trained at the Conservatoire National Supérieur in Paris and completed, among other, the "Dance Unlimited" master's programme for choreography in the Netherlands. Hugonnet founded her own company, Arts Mouvementés, in 2009. Since then, she has created several choreographic works, mainly solos, such as the "Récital des Postures", which was honoured in the "Contemporary Dance Creation" category at the 2017 Swiss Dance Awards. In 2021, she received the Swiss Dance Production of the Year Award from the Federal Office of Culture for "La Peau de l'Espace". Hugonnet's working method is characterised by intensive research and different approaches from various disciplines. Her works have been co-produced at the Théâtre Vidy in Lausanne since 2018. As part of the Migros Kulturprozent dance festival Steps, the choreographer from French-speaking Switzerland will be presenting her production "Les Porte-Voix – Cabaret Ventriloque" and developing a new piece for a young audience: "Les Porte-Voix Junior" will be performed in German in German-speaking Switzerland under the title "Die Flüstertüten – Cabaret des Bauchredens für die ganze Familie".
