Openness. This is what characterizes the company’s path: intimate solos that open up to large-scale pieces, physical writing that engages in the crossroads between the arts, and encounters that determine companionship, in all some twenty creations that are as much rooted in fieldwork as they travel internationally: Luxembourg, Germany, Canada, Algeria, Belgium, Gabon, Italy, Brazil, India… In line with desires, always renewed when it comes to crossing artistic and geographical borders.

Several projects are supported by the French cultural network abroad: French Institutes and Alliances françaises.

The company receives multi-year support from the Ministère de la Culture – DRAC Ile-de-France, the Région Ile-de-France and the Département du Val-de-Marne (94).
