The Swiss dancer Thomas Hauert founded the company ZOO in Brussels in 1998. Cows in Space, the first piece created with Mark Lorimer, Sara Ludi, Mat Voorter and Samantha van Wissen, was immediately awarded at the Rencontres de Seine-St-Denis/Bagnolet. Since then, the company has created and distributed more than 21 works. In addition to his work for ZOO, Thomas has also been invited to create works for the Zurich Ballet, Toronto Dance Theatre, Candoco Dance Company, Ballet Junior de Genève and Ballet de Lorraine among others. Alongside to his choreographic work, Thomas Hauert has developed an internationally recognized teaching method based on the movement research conducted with all the members of ZOO. Since 2013, he has been the artistic director of the Bachelor in Contemporary Dance at the Manufacture – Haute Ecole des Arts de la Scène in Lausanne.
