Locked up in a hotel, a group of travelers find themselves stuck in a burlesque " behind closed doors ", under the watchful eye of a camera that never misses a beat. To find the exit, anything goes! Through wild cavalcades in variable geometric settings, the hotel becomes a playground full of surprises and twists. Only one way out: the door open to the imagination.
Born in 1978, he graduated from the Conservatoire National de Région de Lyon, then from the Conservatoire National Supérieur de Musique et de Danse de Lyon. He improved his training with Odile Duboc, Fabrice Ramalingom, Hélène Cathala, Betty Jones etc.
He joined the Skanes Dance Theatre in Sweden in 1999. He danced in "Meublé Sommairement" (2000) and in "Matière Première" (2002), produced by the association Les Carnets Bagouets; in "Les allées et Venues "(2000) and "Dehors" (2002), produced by La Veilleuse/Christine Jouve Co. He danced with Bernard Glandier in "Le Roi des Bons", Thomas Lebrun in "On prendra bien le temps d’y être", in 2001, "La Trêve(s)" in 2004, "What you want" in 2006 and in "Switch" (2007).
He founded the Arcosm Co in 2000 with Camille Rocailleux and created "Echoa" November 2001, followed by "Lisa" (2006), "La Mécanique des Anges" (2009), "Traverse" (2011), "Solonely" (2012), "Bounce!" (2013), Sublime (2015) & Subliminal (2016). He took part in the choreography of the performance Carnets de notes for the Odysee Ensemble (2003). He choreographed the solo for the State Diploma with Sylvie Giron. Two years later, he was invited by the association Les Carnets Bagouet to stage again for Les Ballets de Nancy another play of their repertoire: Les petites pièces de Berlin. The Ensemble Odyssée Co also called him to stage their new show Le concert interdit.
He wrote a feature film scenario entitled « La boîte en Fer Rouge » with Bertrand Guerry. In 2009, he worked with his brother on the scenario of the feature film « Back Home ». His choreographic experience can be seen through the sharp vision of the destruction of main character’s body.

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.

Artictic Direction: Thomas Guerry, Camille Rocailleux
Founded in Lyon in 2001, Arcosm is co-directed by Thomas Guerry (dancer, choreographer and director) and Camille Rocailleux (percussionist, pianist and composer). The company has chosen as its main focus all forms of crossover and links between different disciplines and artistic vocabularies. It is based on the multiple ways music, song and dance can interlock. The voice, as material, rhythm, melody, timbre or texture, is an inseparable part of the musical world and adds colour, shape and theatricality to the characters. The specific skills and abilities of the performers are taken into account, but they are also invited to explore other less-familiar modes of expression. In this way, the experimentation spaces provoke new dynamics where extremely well-mastered techniques are to be found alongside precious and indispensible “fragilities”, which act as a kind of sensitive and emotional intrusion. Agitation, de-compartmentalisation: every enterprise founded based on curiosity allows apparently-distant fields of activity to be attained. So, we have no intention of suggesting a sharing of existing rules. We are coming with the ambition of constructing trajectories together which have no predetermined destination, strategies and bifurcations. We are building a set of stretches of road alongside the road, as a way of broadening the field of vision. Fragmented, fiery, audacious, serious or funny, the company's shows reflect our everyday world, times in our lives that are sometimes chaotic, sometimes rebellious or madly euphoric, but always with emotions near the surface.
The piece “Echoa”, the company's first creation (2001) in Angoulême for two dancers and two musicians, has been performed over four hundred times on French soil and has been performed by invitation in Brazil, Luxembourg, Wales, Japan and many North American states. As demands to host the piece both in France and abroad continued, even when its two creators were engaged on their second project (as performers as well as choreographers), they chose to retain it and “hand it on” to young performers, musicians and dancers like themselves, coming from similar training backgrounds (Lyon and Paris conservatoires).
