Nour Caillaud

Nour Caillaud

Nour Caillaud is a contemporary dancer and the founder of the Nilanthi Studio.

She was trained in the Boulogne conservatory (CRR), and in the RIDC – a school which specializes in contemporary dance; she learned the repertory from internationally-renowned artists from instructors like Martin Kravitz. She was also trained in traditional Indian dance and collaborated on artistic projects with Raghunath Manet.

She choreographed Les Métronautes with Arthur Deschamps (Théâtre National de Bretagne in 2015, and Théâtre de l’Atelier in June 2016). In 2015-2016, she was cast in Madiba, a musical tribute to Nelson Mandela by Pierre-Yves Duchesne with a libretto by Jean-Pierre Hadida (Théâtre Le Comedia).

This year, singer Cyrille Gallais cast her as a dancer for his video clips for “La Pluie” and “La Femme Araignée”.

Nour was invited by the Pina Bausch Company to follow their training in the Theatre de la Ville in June 2015 and 2016.

These experiences allowed her to join the professional training program in the Centre National de la Danse and to become a certified instructor in contemporary dance in 2017.

Her insatiable curiosity led her to work on Marina Glorian’s project Les Invisibles veillent in 2017/2018, which is a show combining texts, dance and video, inspired by Gérard Mourgue’s poems.

Nour recently appeared in the video for singer Angèle’s “Balance ton quoi” (2018, directed by Charlotte Abramovicz) and she was the face of the LEM LEM ad campaign in 2019.
