Signoret, Céline

Celine Signoret is a choreographer, stage director and performer. She nurtures a transversal identity by participating in collaborative projects at the crossroads of live show and performative art. After a few years co-directing (LA)HORDE collective, within she co-signs choreographic works as Void Island, Avant les gens mouraient and the shortfilm Novacieries, she continues to regularly work with them as an artistic collaborator, notably on projects with the Ballet National de Marseille. Learning and growing from new experiences, she likes to mix original forms of artistic performances, such as comedy shows with [TSO]TAM, allowing her to go even further in her work of expression in all its diversity (music, acting and improvisation); digital arts with EIGENGRAU, an immersive performance based on a futuristic tale; sound design with DATATEARS, Modular Laments. Since 2016, she brings together her experimental ideas as PRYZMA.

Plasson, Fabien

Born in 1977, Fabien Plasson is a video director specialized in the field of performing arts (dance , music, etc).

During his studies at the Ecole Nationale des Beaux-Arts de Lyon (joined in 1995) Fabien discovered video art. He was trained by various video artists (Joel Bartoloméo Pascal Nottoli , Eric Duyckaerts , etc).
He first experimented with the creation of installations and cinematic objects.

From 2001 to 2011, he was in charge of Ginger & Fred video Bar’s programming at La Maison de la Danse in Lyon. He discovered the choreographic field and the importance of this medium in the dissemination, mediation and pedagogical approach to dance alongside Charles Picq, who was a brilliant video director and the director of the video department at that time.

Today, Fabien Plasson is the video director at La Maison de la Danse and in charge of the video section of Numeridanse.tv, an online international  video library, and continues his creative activities, making videos of concerts, performances and also creating video sets for live performances.
