Who is Jean-Pierre Aviotte?
Jean-Pierre AVIOTTE has a passion for movement : from an early age, he has practised extreme sports and, in particular, sports involving sliding motion. He has been a member of the French water-skiing team for several years. He was France’s reigning champion on several occasions and he won a gold medal with the French team at the European championship.
The magic quality of a dance programme prompted him to take up this art form. At the age of 10, he started ballet classes at the conservatoire de Nice on the French Riviera and then, went on to famous dance schools in Cannes, Paris and New York.
In 1983, he was appointed Principal and his career took an international turn. In 1996, he became the Artistic Director of Laterna Magika in Prague, in association with Doctor Svoboda, the inventor of the “total image” concept (in 1957).
Jean-Pierre Aviotte has specialized in the creation of programmes involving pictures as part of the scenography.
He has founded the COMMUN-INSTANT COMPANY.
