Pièce de Poche

Pièce de Poche
Pièce de Poche speaks about two characters who never get bored of meeting each other. They relate to each other with their desires and confront themselves in their thoughts and habits. A negotiation takes place between the desire to keep one’s direction and the desire to be open to new things. The, sometimes, absurd situations create a mirror effect and reveal our mechanisms of cohabitation with gentleness and humor. Reflecting on the role to be taken and the place one occupies, here bodies express feelings and desires better than words.

Born in New-Caledonia, I studied dance at SEAD (Salzburg Experimental Academy of Dance) Austria.
I worked as a performer under several choreographers such as Jérôme Bel, Fabrice Lambert, Julyan Hamilton, Ceren Oran, Milan Tomasik, Michael Langenecker, Mila Koistinen among others. Now starting a collaboration with Régine Chopinot.
I created my own works which has been presented during various festivals and events: Salzig OnStage, Lust Am Risiko Festival, Elevate Festival Graz, (Intro day) Dance and Non-verbal dance festival of SanVincenti.
My work and my dance are deeply nourished by a large interest in different artistic expressive mediums such as architecture, sculpture, photography, cinema and semiology. In parallel to it I have extensive knowledge in scenography. I also completed a Master degree in CGI Animation before embarking on my dance career.
Since my childhood I am passionated by movement and I practiced many different sports such as volleyball which I played many years in high level in Switzerland. After getting a master degree in Adapted Physical Activity and Health in Lausanne university, I have been working few years as a sport educator, as well as a social educator, mostly with disabled people and at-risk youth from difficult backgrounds.
In 2013, I leave Switzerland for a 14 months bike trip through Europe and Asia. When I came back, I made a turn in my professional life and gave a chance to my childhood dream of becoming a professional dancer. After few months of classes in a dance studio in Lausanne, I get in the Undergraduate program at SEAD. I am now sharing my time between a dance career and different interventions as educator. My wish is to use dance as an integrating and developmental tool with people from different backgrounds.
