YVONNE POUGET is a freelance artist, choreographer, director and dancer. Trained in Butoh by Ko Murobusi and Carlotta Ikeda Pouget developed her own and unique body language on stage. She transcends both butoh and classical contemporary dance and expresses a form of symbolic wish-fulfillment. Her artistic work has up a unique position inside the contemporary dance world. Focussing on small, subtle movements, she reduces the visible on its very essence of human beeing. In her productions she uses her specific „bodylanguage of poetry“, her unique ability to controll the fascial structure on pure for a metaphysic desire fulfilment: the world of the stage makes possible on what reality fail: „the soul gets grant do build wings. Like this Pouget´s dance shows the movment of the soul, the truth of the behind, what it mens to be human.

Over the last 15 years the artist did a scientifical accompanied intensive reearch about the topic complex posttraumatic stress dissorder, dissociation, female body image disturbance and the transgenerational transmission of war-related trauma.
Yvonne Pouget ist nowadays justly considerd to be artistic expert and pioneer for the transversion of this challeging topics. Her artistic works to the themes of trauma and PTSD, transposed in expression and dance ist something that does not exist a second time in the world.

Apart from her artistic engagement and work of this topics Pouget pioneered the development of a specific fascial flow training as complementary treatment for PTSD. Scientifical accompanied the choreographer evaluated the research works among others of Stephen Porges, Peter Levine, Besel van der Kolk, David Grant, Fredric Schiffer and David Berceli.

„I still remember Yvonne Pouget´s outstandig production „Hoch oben weites Blau“ (2007/2008). As far as I know she was the first here in Munich, Germany to work off the topic posttraumatic stress disorder artistically. She anticipated a immensily important political topic.
Shortly after Pouget´s stunning artisitc pioneer production post traumatic stress disorder and the invisible woulds of German soldiers in Afghanistan have been taken up as a fundamental problem in all media“. (Martin Sambauer, DAS INTEGRAL)

The topic of Yvonne Pougets last stage production „Lo spirito del cuore“ was the biographical memory of the fascial structure / connective tissues of the human body: all bodily experiences get stored in the nerve-cells and built up an autonomic memory. Between the cerebrum, medulla and the matrix of the fascia happens a completely a autonomic comunication. The new neurobiological research theories are talking in this connection about the „Memory of the matrix of the fascia“, the new neurobiological explanation is that the whole lifestory of a human is restired in the matrix of the fascia.

In March 2012 Pouget pubished “Licht und Abyss”, about the making off her production “Identità” and “Hoch oben weites Blau”.
