The Creations 2015




           " Être (s) " "Being (s)"


                           (Audiences everyone from 12, 45 minutes, indoor show)


                 "Being (s)" is a sensory journey on the relationship to oneself, to the other and to his own physical memory.

                 Between plural and singular, East and the West, "Being (s)" is on the border of different influences wherein the pure gesture, the material and objet, the sound universe and the light, merge.


         In "Être (s)", "Being (s)", we see the evolution of one character who, to exist, has no other choice than to take off his masks and offer himself to life.


           This creation, "Being (s)" for an actress of the gesture and a musician relies on body language where corporal dramaturgy is developed in relation to the object (object- mask, hand puppet / body castelet, material or movement mere), all accompanied by live sound univers with bowl, gong Tibetans and piano.


         One extract of "Being (s)" was presented in 2014 at the Festival Marionnettissimo, in 2013 at the 10th International Mime and Physical Theatre in Puerto Rico, in 2012 in Paris at the Samovar in Montreuil under the Cartes Blanches data Théâtre du Mouvement and at the I.V.T.

            The difference in scale between the sculpture and the sculptor, the work is placed in its monumental aspect.

           The body-matter here becomes a place of experimentation where the creator doubt, questioning, trying to transcribe his thoughts and his actions giving way to see the conflict and tender that connects to his work, life and work which takes him escapes gradually ...

Shorts creations for the event "This body memory" in 2013 (award Toulous'Up 2012, City Hall ofToulouse)


         Four short creations  (15 minutes) was created in 2013 by the Theatre L’écoutille company for the event "This body memory" in the museums in Toulouse (Award Toulous'Up 2012, City Hall of Toulouse), September-December 2013, Highlight of Planète Mime.

         For each of these creations, we sought to establish a relationship between the musical score of the instrument of the violin and the musicality of the gestural score with Sarah Baert-Labrousse (live violin) and Anaïs André-Acquier (gesture).



- « Manimal », or the beginning of all life 2013, 15 mn

Strange creature, half-animal, half-man, "Manimal" becomes mysterious living species. From this metamorphosis, ancestral reminiscence, "Manimal" expands to finally reveal the thinking animal, homo sapiens sapiens.

Representation given to Natural History  Museum in partnership with  the Festival La Novela, fête connaissance !  september 2013.



- « Spaces of body »

A body, a line, an empty space.

A movement.

A refined gesture model space.

The space builds itself and comes undone by the body lines.

The poetics of the body and space confront itself and confound.

Representation given to Southern Center for Architecture and the City, October 2013.



- « Of Bodies and souls » or the life of the object

History between a person and an object.

Two very different identities and yet...

From one to another, the object takes life and questions the one who animates him.

Moments shared between an object and its manipulator.

Then, who will have the last word?

Representation given to Paul Dupuy Museum in partnership with the Marionnettissimo Festival, November 2013



- « Of the work of art in the feminine »

Model, muse, Madonna without forgetting her dark side, the woman has always intrigued and questioned the artists, in particular the painters.

What’s this body to the sensual forms , this delicate look, this reassuring but also devouring maternal tenderness, this bewitching charm...

Of the feminine to the work of art, of the work of art in the feminine.

Representation given to Museum of Augustins, December 2013.
