Léo Collin ( الجزائر/France ♓︎) is the son of a doctor and an astrologist.
It might be the reason why he combined in his work a little dose of poison which makes immune
and an interpretation of a constellation of the possibles.

However, his compositions are made as potential bifurcations
for empowerment him-self and his audience/performers.

Let’s sing a counterpoint challenging the current system of value,  let’s play fictions who trains us for sustainable relations with others...  with the use of sound and stage compositions, where poetry operates with new technologies, combined with the sounds of acoustic, electronic and new lutherie.



Léo Collin trained in music composition in Geneva, Freiburg & Zurich, piano in Lyon and Art Applied in Marseille & Besançon. Now, his practice is made of music compositions, immersive theater pieces and performances made within the label kollektiv international totem. 

Results were played at the Schauspielhaus Zurich, Deutsch theater Berlin, Gessnerallee Zurich, Dampfzentrale Bern, Kasern Basel, Centre 104 Paris & Scène Nationale Perpignan by amongst other, ensemble Intercontemporain, les Métaboles, Musicatreize.

He performed at the Centre National de la Danse Pantin, Comédie Geneva, Opera House Freiburg in Breisgau with choreographers Sebastian Matthias, Alessandro Sciarroni, Jeremy Wade and composer Michael Jarrell.



He lives and works in the extensive mountain range system named Alps. * composition made of myths and salient elements of his environment, various materials such as hijacking everyday situations, animal tracking, mistranslations from GAFA, reading about decolonisation, totemism, feminism, some radio archives & french humor...

On this photo he is thinking that his recent works aim to increase our sensitivity to the web of relations that connect humans and the other animate and inanimate entities that surround us.

SELECTED WORKS


メデューサ MEDUSEN


version hyperlokal 2020
Puzzle piece for a mini-city, four groups of audience, three performers, several objects, with optional live band, video and audio sampler.  Libretto homemade  


Interested?  click >here<  







In the manner of a search engine around the word “meduse”. Medusen reveals links between elements which seem at first sight heterogeneous, crossing Greek mythology, science and human history.

Medusen is a multi-perspective performance, which includes a video-walk audio-walk,
a treasure-hunt, a guided city tour, a concert and an installation.

⚖︎


Each listener-viewer can select different character paths to unravel a case with another point of view.

Like investigators, the audience discovers the character’s mind, walking between old hegemonic patterns and dopamine.

⚕︎


As a navigator who interprets the sky through constellations to move forward through waters. Medusen activates the imagination of the audience to face their own reality












 

וואַלפיש BALEEN

Inspired by the story of the super-prophet Jona (old testament), Baleen focuses on the concept of “loop/karma/cycle-recycle”, from the simple pulse to the complex feedback, translated on stage in hijacked everyday-objects (like turntable, carousel, smoothie machine, etc...).

This work has also a fascination for the anthropomorphic sounds (a saxophone or a balloon can sound like animals or fish such a whale).

A point of view from the book Jonah can rejoin us today, it is this death drive tendency : the secret wish, to the destruction of the city/humanity. We create an ecological tale where plastic bags are seen as creative instruments, not as a secret massive destructive weapon.
