Konan Dayot

Konan Dayot (°1990, Nantes, FR) joined Peeping Tom in 2020 for Triptych: The missing door, The lost room and The hidden floor. He received an education in jazz drums, classical percussion and contemporary dance at the Nantes conservatoire. He also did an exchange programme at the Julliard School.

In 2010, he obtained degrees from the Conservatoire Supérieur de Paris and the Centre National de la Danse. He has worked, amongst others, with Boris Charmatz, Thierry Smits, Olivia Granville, Helge Letonja, Ashley Chen, John Scott, and Thomas Lebrun. Being passionate about music, he is a percussionist in Dazlamm Trio & Trio Dayot, and has collaborated with the Atelier Terre et Son, the French udus maker. In 2023, he released his first album recorded in empty theaters, No Seat reservation.

He has collaborated intensively, both within dance and in music, sometimes combining both, in conventional spaces but also in national theatres, in the Louvre museum or in Tate Modern, as well as more informal spaces, such as the submarine base of Saint-Nazaire, the scaffolded cathedral of l’Aquila or the burning inmensity of the Sahara.
