Hubert Hazebroucq:
Since 1998, Hubert Hazebroucq has been specialising in historical dance, such as Renaissance and Baroque dances. He works with different companies in Paris, e.g. l'Eclat des Muses (dir. C. Bayle), performs recreated dances and teaches the 'Repertoire'. Since 2008, as director of the company Les Corps Eloquents, he also choreographs historical style based dances. As member of the Research Society ACRAS (1), he is involved in a research programme about German treatises on Dance. Assistant for recreating early baroque style (1600-1635), he also works on evolution of Renaissance Ballroom dancing. His main research interest now lies with technique and poetics and theatrical dancing from 1660 to 1730.

Dr Edward Nye:
He specialises in C18 European Theatre and ballet. He has recently completed a monograph Mime, Music and Drama on the Eighteenth-centrury Stage, which publication by Cambridge University Press is imminent (July 2011). He is currently writing an intellectual biography of Deburau which pays less attention to the myth, and more to the reception of his performances in contemporary writing in order to bring out the aesthetic and general performance principles of his work.

Dr Jed Wentz:
He completed a PhD entitled “The Relationship between Gesture, Affect and Rhythmic Freedom in the Performance of French Tragic Opera from Lully to Rameau” (Univ. of Leyden). He is internationally known as a virtuoso flutist and also as a conductor. He is the founder of the ensemble ‘Musica ad Rhenum’ which was recently heard on BBC Radio 3 (‘The Early Music Show’).
