Alain Buffard is an internationally recognised French choreographer born and based in Paris. His career started as a dancer and in 1988 he created his first choreography, while working in an art gallery and reporting on French visual arts for foreign newspapers.
He abandoned dance for a few years before returning to create several acclaimed solos, duets and trios that have been performed in Europe and the United States. His works include Good Boy (1998), Good for... (2002), Wall dancin'/Wall fuckin' (2003) and Les Inconsolés (2005).
In 2004 he made My lunch with Anna, a film about the legendary American choreographer Anna Halprin. He has also co-curated a number of exhibitions. Buffard's early work centred on gender and sexuality, and in recent years has shifted to focus on narrative and voice.
