A French composer born in 1947 in Paris.
After studying at the Paris Conservatory, Jacques Rebotier taught harmony and counterpoint together with musical analysis at the Sorbonne (1974-83). Chief Inspector for music with the French Ministry of Culture between 1985 and 1989, he has since devoted himself exclusively to composition and creation. At once writer, composer and stage director, Jacques Rebotier is also the founder of the company voQUE and the author of many shows. His output is varied: poetry, photo-novels, performance-lectures, theatre-installations, dance and music. Having a particular interest in the relationship between text and music, he favours freely expressive music. He performs solo or in the company of dancers, actors, plastic artistes and writers. His musical works include P(l)ages (1988), Requiem (1994), L'indien des neiges (2001, a chamber opera first staged in Lyons), Le tombeau de monsieur dragon (2008).
