French-born and living in Quebec since 1999, Séverine Lombardo completes in 2004 a bachelor in dance choreography and performance at Université du Québec à Montréal. On this same year, she begins working with her twin sister Élodie, sharing the artistic and general direction of newly created company Les Soeurs Schmutt. Since then, Séverine alternates between dancing contracts and projects of her own; she creates five pieces for the stage, co-signs in situ performances with her sister as well as commissioned works, all the while dancing in her sister’s pieces in Quebec and Mexico. Séverine also partakes in numerous artistic collaborations as a performer: alongside Fanfare Pourpour, Super Musique, La 2e Porte à gauche, Emmanuel Jouthe/Danse Carpe Diem and Danse-Cité, as well as community co-creation projects with artistic accomplice, videographer Robin Pineda Gould. Her artistic process revolves around the sensation and the intimate, using dance as an interface with the material world and always placing the dancer-spectator relationship in the center of her preoccupation.
