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.
