Renaud Wiser is a choreographer based in London. He was born in Switzerland and trained in dance in Geneva before joining the Ballet Junior in 1998. During his studies, Renaud was awarded the Migros Bursary for young talent for three consecutive years. He then pursued an international career as a dancer with renown companies including the Geneva Ballet, the Ballet National de Marseille, the Gothenburg Ballet, Rambert and Bonachela Dance Company. Early on in his career, his interest for choreography led him to make work for young choreographers' platforms and in 2013, Renaud launched Renaud Wiser Dance Company.
His work is known for its crafted physicality and intricate movement vocabulary. He has a particular interest in collaborative work strongly rooted in our contemporary world and tackling issues relevant to our human condition. He has created numerous pieces performed in the UK (The Place, Dance City, Rich Mix, Pavilion Dance, Greenwich Dance, Stratford Circus) and in festivals in Spain, Poland, Latvia, Switzerland and Italy.
In 2011, Renaud took part in Siwic, a coaching project in Zurich for young and promising choreographers. He is a founder-member and co-choreographer of New Movement Collective, nominated for best independent company at the 2013 and 2014 national critic circle award and an associate company of Rambert. He is also a regular tutor for the Architecture Association Interprofessional Studio (a post-professional course leading to a Post-Graduate Diploma in Spatial Performance and Design) and for Rambert School and London Studio Centre.
