BEFORE/NOW



Léo Collin is the son of a doctor and an astrologist.
It might be the reason why he combines in
his work a little dose of poison which makes immune
and an interpretation of a constellation of the possibles.




En tant que musicien, il entretient un rapport nuancé avec ses instruments hors-corps qui lui permis de pouvoir s’exprimer.
En tant que compositeur, il s’est entrainé à aime les failles des instruments, de la technologie et la technique, les objets et les machines, les animaux et les plantes. Car que ce passe-t-il quand nos ordinateurs ne marchent plus ?  Que se passe-t-il si les plantes ne digèrent plus le CO2?

Que reste-t-il de mon corps? 

Let’s sing together 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.

He lives and works in the extensive mountain range system named Alps.

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.
