in 1997 that Christine Sehnaoui decided to start her own autodidact study

at Instants Chavirés in Montreuil, and in different regular formations.
Her main musical partners include Stéphane Rives, Quentin Dubost,
Agnès Palier, Sebastien Bouhana, Mazen Kerbaj. For the past few
years, she has been working with the field of dance ( Buto and contemporary
dance) and also she undertakes an ungoing research on musical pedagogy
(concerts for children, intervention in schools).
Besides, since 2001, she contibutes to develop impovisation in her country
of origins, Lebanon, where she co-organizes the annual festival of improvised
music in Lebanon, called « Irtijal ».
Apart from this, she has a BA on Sociology and she works in a independant
DVD label of experimental cinema (LOWAVE), whose objective is to discover
