Joséphine Auffray studied at Trinity Laban Conservatoire of Music and Dance in London (2015-2018) for the BA (Hons) in Contemporary Dance. In 2017, as part of the Erasmus programme, Joséphine studied at Folkwang Universität der Künste in Essen for several months. During her training, Joséphine has been performing works by Merce Cunningham, Alison Curtis Jones, Marina Collard, Heidi Rustgaard, Claude Brumachon and Benjamin Lamarche. Throughout this period, she has been able to experience collaborations with artists such as Ellen Van Schuylenburch, John Richards and Rodolfo Araya. By studing at Laban School, Joséphine achieved and collected choreographic tools, which pushed her to create already two of her own works; KLIMAX and MIMOWERK. Originally from France, Joséphine first studied in the Conservatoire de Nantes with intense ballet training along teachers such as Nathalie Quernet, Maurice Courchay and Marie-Elisabeth Demaille. Deeply attracted to contemporary values, she then followed in the same Conservatoire the contemporary dance Course along teachers such as Rodolfo Araya, Rosine Nadjard and Anne Carrié.
