"I make videos and stage choreographic performances. My image work questions and reconsiders the limits of the documentary work on historical, religious or sacred grounds... I take real moments, I puncture slices of real life by immersing a subjectivity, a sound or musical framework, an ambivalence that oscillates between contemporary video and cinema. It is a reality that is collected and then composed. In my choreographic creation, the research is visceral, collective and impetuous. The scenographic device, the dramaturgical writing, the living matter of these creations remain artificial, diametrically invented. With the participation of numerous actors, dancers and singers, my stage work is at the crossroads of performance, dance and theatre.
