Achievements for institutions – Artist residencies
//// Night of June 24, 2000 – Achievement of a lighting fair (funded by the Board of elected district administrators of the Hauts de Seine district, over 27 district towns) with the label of the « Celebration year 2000 mission of the French Ministry of Culture ». Creation of a luminous object called « modulum », and distributed to the audience, as well as costumes for the dancers, and a choreography tought in the 27 towns, each town defining its own geographical path.///2004-2015 Founder and head in charge of the « ENSAAMA Light workshop », 75015. For over 10 years, the students of art schools in Paris have been tought about light, its evolution with new sources, the environmental demands, Man’s new behaviors, especially in urban contexts. Teaching is based on practise, thanks to equipment provided by our sponsor « PHILIPS LIGHTING ». Teaching is also provided on out of school locations, like at the « Lyons Light Fair », etc – with theoretical modules and lectures. The « Light workshop » has been labelled by the « International light year » sponsor group in 2015.
124 students took part in the workshop//// 2008 town of Libourne : on December 21, creation of a light parade across town and of a light danse on the Surchamp downtown square, with the « actilum » dansers and costumes and luminous musicians to arouse the public. Live video animation with the public, with real-time wide screen transmission on the square////
2004-2015 Teaching of plastic expression. It allowed me to offer the students « crossed practises » optimizing simultaneous skills learning (danse/drawing – body language, movement, drawing- fabric/movement/drawing, etc..). In this respect the way to do it matters more than the result : the founding factor is an acting student’s discovery and appropriation of a new field of skills. That enlarged work inspires and boosts through its playful, practical and exciting features. Thoses exercises may apply to other audiences than art students. They call for a personal dedication independently from his/her « talent »///
//// 2014 Creation of a performance show « Survival cloaks » featuring 18 students using « movements/contemporary danse and light ». This work was born from the available autonomy thanks to LED light sources, namely the on-board light and its handling by the dancers. The work was enriched with the cooperation with the research center of the Fabrics Design Workshop. A video is available on the net : https://vimeo.com/197118248
