Stanley Ollivier is a French dancer, performer and choreographer. He studied at the International Dance Academy and CNSMDP in Paris, and obtained his Master of Arts in Dance at P.A.R.T.S. in Brussels. His artistic practice stems from the belief that the human body has infinite possibilities to generate the unexpected and wants to challenge its abstract, imaginative, and perceptive power. He is interested in physical investigations, including but not limited to movement. He works around questions related to the place of amusement in contemporary dance, context displacement, identity, humour, and versatility.

Stanley has collaborated with, a.o., Kamel Ouali, Tatiana Seguin, François Rousseau, Lasseindra Ninja, Iván Pérez, Luis Ramirez Muñoz, Pippin, Morgan Productions, Disney Channel, Lila&John, Nina Muñoz, Collective LA 360/Sarah Deppe, Timothe Chams Yadollahi, Cie Tabea Martin, Brahim Tall, and Geert Belpaeme. He has presented his work at To Be Antwerp Festival, Cocq’arts Festival, Tic Tac Art Center, Beursschouwbourg, BAMP, Design Museum Brussels, Queer Festival Heidelberg a.o. He is an active member of the Ballroom Scene and part of the Iconic House Of Ninja in Paris and Brussels.
