Léa Tirabasso (b. 1985) is a dancer and choreographer working in Luxembourg and London. She graduated from London Contemporary Dance School (2009), and also holds a BA in History of Art and Modern Literature.

As a dancer, she has worked with Johannes Wieland, Stephanie Thiersch, Michael Langeneckert (DE), Chris Haring (AT) José Vidal & Company, Clod Ensemble, James Finnemore, Seven Sisters Group, Peter Groom (UK), Jean-Guillaume Weis, Bernard Baumgarten (LU). For two seasons, she was a full time member of the TanzTheater Ensemble in Kassel (DE), under the direction of Johannes Wieland.

She started making her own work in 2013. Since then, it has been presented internationally; in Luxembourg (Banannefabrik, Kinneksbond Mamer, CAPe Ettelbrück), in the UK (The Place London, TripSpace London, NSCD Riley Theatre Leeds, DanceXchange Birmingham), France (KLAP, Maison pour la Danse Marseille), Germany (Dock4 Kassel, Staatstheater Mainz, International Tanzmesse Düsseldorf), Spain (AGITART, Figures) and South Korea (SID2018 Seoul). Léa has been invited and held talks about her work with students at University College London and London Contemporary Dance School.

As a choreographer, she is fascinated by the uncompromising tension inherent in our human condition; twisted corporeal needs versus spiritual life. She is interested in the collision between the graceful and the dissonant, the comic and the tragic, the grotesque and the transcendent. Cultural constructions, stifled pulses and the human condition at its most bizarre are at the centre of her work.

In 2016, Léa received the prestigious award Arts et Lettres in Luxembourg (Institut Grand Ducal) for her work as a dancer and choreographer.
