Elisabeth Desbiens, Founder & Agent

Élisabeth Desbiens studied dance and cinema. After having produced and directed several dance shorts that have traveled all over the world, she enjoys a worldwide dance and film network and is often called upon to refer and advise her colleagues in the world of production.

That’s why she founded Écran de danse in 2014, which will become MOVE in 2018. At the same time, his many years of experience in coordinating advertising, television and corporate projects helped him to understand the issues at stake and to know his main actors. Her understanding of the language of movement allows her to propose artists who meet a current demand. With MOVE, Élisabeth wants to allow the meeting between the artisans of the movement, the screen and the general public.
