Laurie Cannac - "Ebony-White"
White as snow, red as blood, black as ebony... It is high time to return its colors to Snow-White! Here the spotless only one will be the stepmother, the white Queen, obsessed by its only appearance, which does not cease trying to remove the girl of the former black queen, wild and free, which grows in the forest among animals...

Ilka Schönbein / Alexandra Lupidi - "Rumpelstiltskin & Creatures"
The tale is about art, probably about all kinds of art, for every artist transmutes straw into gold. But I believe also that every true artist is carried by a little (or not so little) devil. And this devil wants to be paid. And what this little devil prefers, above all, it’s something really living... So it costs the artist his own living soul, his own living body and his own living future (the child of the tale)...

Nicolas Saelens - "The Promethean Suites"
The Promethean Suites are a collection of traces, prints, echoes of the living. The device is organized around the presence / absence of a Prometheus who witnesses what the Men have made of his sacrifice. From the myth to the everyday (facts, anecdote, joke, flash infos), we imagine parables, forms that articulate both the narrative of experience, the thought of experience and the poetic imagination...

Patrick Sims - "Ambergris" - An alchemical puppet operetta
Pinocchio is a classic story about transformation. Nowhere is this more evident than in the episode in which Pinocchio finds himself in the belly of the whale, a pivotal moment in the tale in which the puppet is confronted with his maker and his own essence...

Season 2018-2019

Dan Jemmett - "I am invisible" (Based on William Shakespeare's A Midsummer Night's Dream)
I think somehow I always wanted to direct Shakespeare’s ‘A Midsummer’s Night’s Dream’, or at least some sort of version of the play. And so I have waited patiently over the years for the right inspiration to come along, an inspiration that might show me the way towards a starting point or perhaps open a door for me into a moon-lit, enchanted forest at midnight...

Dyssia Loubatière - "Jacob, Jacob" At first, a photo. Four young men putting proudly in front of a replica of Normandy, in Alger. From this face and memories of her grandmother, Valérie Zenatti is going to reinvent and to restore to the memory, a life which she did not know.

Hovnatan Avédikian - "Corsica"
Three “freedom fighters” detained in a tiny cell, deep in the bottom of Corsica militate for independence. They find themselves in charge of a quite important mission: managing a gigantic emerald for the benefit of the Cause and its direction. Between pastoral humour and rural vendetta, this cynical farce depicts a political commitment “at the right height for a man”...
