091117 – FOUR FOR / IN RESIDENCY IN OPERA DE LILLE
Very happy to work in my hometown. Pure research…enough said. We are still very intimidated by the amount of work. “Four For” is a follow-up of a small piece, “For Morton Feldman”, created in march 2017 . We will pursue our exploration of staged music during two seasons. A second piece around the musical thought of John Cage will be done around june 2018. Then a third about Eliane Radigue, in december 2018. Assembling the three studies will produce a fourth larger piece « Four For », created in february 2019 in Le Phénix (Valenciennes).
221017 – TWO WORKSHOPS « THESE ARE THE RULES OF THIS SPACE »
During lovely Melbourne Festival, I gave a 2-days workshop dedicated to makers, performers and scholars.
I also gave another one featuring Dominique Gilliot, in a 5-days version, for the Master of Theater Practices of the ArtEZ art school (Arnhem, Netherlands).
090517 – NEXT SEASON
16-17 : a season of changes, devoted to the tour of Corps Diplomatique, and launching a cycle of short forms taking us until spring 2019.
17-18 : here’s our take on that season : mental apnea, reading on house arrest until I pass out, working fast but on the long run.
080517 – POSTPRODUCTION
10 days residency at BudaKunstenCentrum doing postproduction on For Morton Feldman, and opening the research on Four For, the next project.

011116 – CORPS DIPLOMATIQUE
Second season for Corps Diplomatique, welcoming a new actress in the cast, for its 50th gig, all across France (and Norway). Worsening our carbon footprint, one show at a time.
011016 – CORPS ALPHA
After training two teams of astronauts in PACT Zollverein (Essen) and Théâtre Nanterre-Amandiers, we offer a workshop for young artists in TAP (Poitiers). We’ll make cosmic art warriors out of those damn wimps. Dance training under hypnosis with Mylène Benoit, moderate geekery with Antoine Villeret and dramaturgy suited to unconventional lifeforms.
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.
For its second season, Corps Diplomatique has a new actress in its distribution and is back on the road from France to Norway, approaching its 50th gig and making our carbon footprint worse every day.
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.
I’m starting a new research program, around a freeform interpretation of the concept of the recital. The first -small- step will be created in La Pop in Paris, 11-12 march 2017. Ears will be required. Enough said for now.
