THEATER - DANSE - PUPPET PHOTOGRAPHY - UNDERWATER ART
Born in Paris in 1986, I studied drama in high school and worked with the company La Rumeur, based in a factory converted in theater. Thus, I discovered dance-theater , the life of a theater company, as well as the process of an artistic creation.
From there begins a theatrical and academic research on New Territories of Art. I obtained in 2008 a Master in Conception and Realization of a Cultural Project via Erasmus in art history at UCL (Belgium). My dissertation entitled "Open Views on the City" is about spaces that become venues for artistic creations in Brussels.
Meanwhile, I worked for seven years with the company Terrain Vague, a theater which performs in public spaces. I played in all shows and performances with this company.
I performed on the project “Snow White” with Catherine Bay, I participated in several workshops at the National Center of Circus Arts. I was a performer in "Balloon Chain" by Robert Bose in Sudoeste Festival in Portugal as well as in the Estonian Artists Collective Non Grata in Europe and in the United States.
Five years ago, I discovered the art of puppetry in traveling and met the company Automne2085, nomadic company of puppet with them I have been working since.
Also, I work as an intervener artist with children, teenager, intergenerational audience for MACCRETEIL and CENTQUATRE Paris.
In 2018, I set up my own artistic company : manOEuvres. Acutally I'm developping an "Aquartistic" practice named AQUAVITAE for which I have been receiving the Residency of the French Institute for a research in Indonesia. It’s an underwater art combining theater, puppetry, photography, video. The first production of that practice is Aquavitae show. It will be on tour in France and in Indonesia in september 2019 with all my team.
During this indonesian researches, where I have been working with the artist Mirjam Landolt, the wish came to go on further together with the aquatic curiosity cabinet. We are actually working on this exhibition.
Alongside , I’m developping an aquatic performance issu of all this works in the sea and swimming pool. It will be the third part of the triptych AQUAVITAE
