⭐️ROLE: Artist – VR specialist
CHIMÈRES is a programme of artistic residencies for research and production, which offers artists from different artistic fields the opportunity to meet and create together projects that go beyond the classical frameworks of live performance and exhibition, integrate digital technology, and present a strong inventiveness in the viewer’s place within the narrative and scenic device.
Initiated by the Ministry of Culture-Directorate General of Artistic Creation (DGCA), CHIMÈRES is supported by the Lieu Unique (LU), the National Stage of Nantes and the Théâtre Nouvelle Génération (TNG), the National Dramatic Centre of Lyon in 2019 and 2020.
CHIMÈRES encourages artists and creators from different practices to work together, allowing them to dialogue, throughout the creative process, with art and culture professionals in order to ensure the best possible dissemination of the created works.
12 candidates has been selected over 300 applications:
- Maxime Arnould
- Julie Benegmos
- Maud Clavier
- Lisiane Durand
- David Girondin-Moab
- Isabelle Jonniaux
- Raphaël Kuntz
- Nicolas Lelièvre
- Marion Pellissier
- Emmanuelle Raynaut
- Nicolas Zlatoff
Following a first day session with all these artists, we created dozens of artistic concepts.
Out of the ten, three were selected, including the 5th Wall project, of which I am a member with Isabelle Jonniaux, David Girondin-Moab and Emmanuelle Raynaut.
We were then invited to continue our research during a second artistic residency, where we reflect on the correlation between choreography via virtual reality, the plastic universe and transhumanist dramaturgy. This project will be monitored during 2020 and may go into production depending on the results.
But for me, this residency allowed me to reconnect with my old skills in the performing arts, and put my new talents at the service of this medium.
