Léo Collin is a son of a doctor and an astrologist.  He expresses him-self on format between auto-fictions and investigations , made of reading,  photographies and films from travels or internet, samples of podcasts and many other ressources from his insconscious and his everyday life.
Trained as a composer with the knowleage of contemporary music, he creates his scenic pieces as a collage with the ambition to share the nowadays reflexions on music to a larger audience 

There is a necessity to build cabanes (huts) in the faults of the capitalism world that have colonised our mind and this planet. His resilient compositions are a game of free associations between myths and salient elements of his environment, composed with various materials such as hijacking everyday situations, animal tracking, mistranslations from GAFA, readings on ecology lecture and radio archives. With an animistic understanding of the world and a french humor, he repairs, he cares as much as he can the damaged relation with other (species), thanks to the sound and stage compositions, where poetic transformations operates with new technologies, combined with the sounds of acoustic and electronic instruments.
He works with the Kollektiv International Totem.

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, 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.
