The company creates pieces that mix intimate themes, around the identity / alterity couple, and contemporary issues such as the modern world's troubles, the time, the tyrannical power of images or the friction between "common" and "singular". Through its specific choreographic writing that integrates set materials and open structures, the company also explores the conditions of representation and the place of the body on stage.
Every year its projects and productions include collaborations with foreign artists in various contexts (in Korea, Spain, Israel, Japan, Mexico, Netherlands, Tunisia…) and since 2000 his pieces have been widely performed in France and abroad.
« The Physicality”of the movement and its poetry, the intimacy of human being, the daily life and its drifts, are the sources for my choreographic writing.
To serve the unknown, the spontaneity and the wide part of ambiguity and trouble, without which there is no living event on stage »
