After training two groups of astronauts in PACT Zollverein (Essen) and Théâtre Nanterre-Amandiers, we are doing a workshop for young artists in TAP (Poitiers). We will make cosmic art warriors out of those wimps. Including : dance under self-hypnosis with Mylène Benoit, moderate geekery with Antoine Villeret and dramaturgy for non-conventional life forms.
Starting a research on a freeform interpretation of the concept of recital. A work in progress will be presented at La Pop , 11-12 mars 2017 in Paris. Ears are required. Enough said.
Bravo Zoulou, in international flag code, means « well done ». This new company is now the production tool for my artistic work. After founding and assuming artistic co-direction of l’amicale de production for eight years, I decided to develop my projects independently. La Magnanerie, a production house, is in charge with its administration.
