Adrien Martins

Adrien has always loved to move and express himself through dance, but it was in a dance school in the 20th arrondissement of Paris, where he is originally from, that he began classical dance at the age of 6. He then joined the School of Dance of Opéra National de Paris, then the Conservatoire National Supérieur de Danse et de Musique (CNSMD) in Paris.

In parallel to his academic training, he created with his sister Alice Martins, dancer and architect, the duo A au carré, in which they freely create performances. At the age of 19, he moved to Barcelona to join the Jove IT DANSA company where he performed pieces by Ohad Naharin, Sidi Larbi Cherkaoui and Alexander Ekman, among others. He continued his career as a dancer with Project Sally in the Netherlands.

In 2014, he returned to France and was hired at the Centre Chorégraphique National de Rillieux-la-Pape (CCNR), directed by Yuval Pick. Since April 2019, freelance dancer, Adrien continues his research, collaboration with his sister and other artists, like Alban Richard and Simon Feltz.
