In the course of their artistic careers, Jérôme Meyer and Isabelle Chaffaud have gone from being excellent dancers, performing with world-renowned companies such as Nederlands Dans Theater 1 and Batsheva Dance Company, to award-winning choreographers whose work has been seen in companies such as Scapino Ballet Rotterdam, Introdans, Geneva Ballet, and Korzo, and at international festivals in 14 countries. Jerome and Isabelle are co-founders of the multidisciplinary festival HUBS Immersive and the research platform CLOUD/Danslab, both based in The Hague.
