Renaud is an associate artist with Swindon Dance. Renaud works with the body and choreography as his main means of expression in a wide range of performative contexts. He is concerned with the role of the human body in our modern world, the erosion of its purpose amplified by a rapid rise in global automation and its value as a vehicle for emotions and non verbal communication. His work is known for its crafted physicality and intricate movement vocabulary. Renaud often collaborates with artists from various artistic backgrounds, constructing multidisciplinary productions and investigating modes of co-authorship. Since May 2018, Renaud is the new artistic co-director of Newcastle based company Fertile Ground.
