Olivier Dubois

Olivier Dubois discusses his new work Tragédie with Evenings Standard’s Lyndsey Winship and the revelations he had that led him into a career in dance.

Dubois is the unlikeliest of dancers — short, solidly built, a tad fleshy — and he didn’t start dancing until the age of 23. He comes from a wealthy family in Provence, with the kind of upbringing in which your career options are “a bishop, an army officer or a diplomat”, as he puts it. He studied languages, law and economics and was heading down the diplomacy route until one day, out of the blue, he said to himself, “I need to dance”.
