He also made some choreographies at Korzo Producties. For TWOOLS 2 he made Like This in 2000, and in 2001 for TWOOLS 4 the creation So And So was released.
After his time at Scapino Ballet Rotterdam, Gaël Domenger left for Biarritz in France to work as a choreographer at Malandain Ballet Biarritz. In 2007 he became head of the Choreographic Research Laboratory. Domenger is also a dance teacher at the Ginasiano Escola de Dança in Portugal.
