Lisa

The curtain opens ... Several individuals move on stage in a frenetic and determined walk. A vain agitation seems to take hold of this crowd. The bodies collide but do not look at each other. Suddenly a petrifying cry comes to break this insane ballet. This cry is that of "Lisa". A multifaceted woman-child, she constantly projects herself into a dream world, the only way for her to survive the reality of which she neither understands the rules nor the meaning.

Picq, Charles

A- fter resuming his studies (Maîtrise de Linguistique - Lyon ii, Maîtrise des sciences et Techniques de la Communication - grenoble iii), he then focused on video, first in the field of fine arts at the espace Lyonnais d'art Contemporain (ELAC) and with the group « Frigo », and then in dance.
   On creation of the Maison de la Danse in Lyon in 1980, he was asked to undertake a video documentation project that he has continued ever since. During the ‘80s, a decade marked in France by the explosion of contemporary dance and the development of video, he met numerous artists such as andy Degroat, Dominique Bagouet, Carolyn Carlson, régine Chopinot, susanne Linke, Joëlle Bouvier and regis Obadia, Michel Kelemenis. He worked in the creative field with installations and on-stage video, as well as in television with recorded shows, entertainment and documentaries.

His work with Dominique Bagouet (80-90) was a unique encounter. He documents his creativity, assisting with Le Crawl de Lucien and co-directing with his films Tant Mieux, Tant Mieux and 10 anges. in the 90s he became director of video development for the Maison de la Danse and worked, with the support of guy Darmet and his team, in the growing space of theatre video through several initiatives:
       - He founded a video library of dance films with free public access. This was a first for France. Continuing the video documentation of theatre performances, he organised their management and storage.
       - He promoted the creation of a video-bar and projection room, both dedicated to welcoming school pupils.
       - He started «présentations de saisons» in pictures.
       - He oversaw the DVD publication of Le tour du monde en 80 danses, a pocket video library produced by the Maison de la Danse for the educational sector.

       - He launched the series “scènes d'écran” for television and online. He undertook the video library's digital conversion and created Numeridanse.


His main documentaries are: enchaînement, Planète Bagouet, Montpellier le saut de l'ange, Carolyn Carlson, a woman of many faces, grand ecart, Mama africa, C'est pas facile, Lyon, le pas de deux d'une ville, Le Défilé, Un rêve de cirque.

Arcosm

Artictic Direction: Thomas Guerry, Camille Rocailleux

Creation: 2001

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).
