Statment of intent

« July 2002 – I was a guest of Rachid Ouramdane. He and I studied the figure of the biker as a loner without his motorbike, travelling solo. skull*cult was born, for and with the Jardin de la Vierge theatre as part of Avignon festival.
October 2016, during the “Préludes à la saison 2016/2017” (season kick-off) organised by ICI—CCN, I go back on that solo piece, with the wish to bring about, one more time, a moment of contemplation and mystery, an enclave in these chaotic times and increasing flow of images. 
comme crâne, comme culte. disregards the existing tracks to leave new ones, as so many thoughts (prayers, visions) built up in the void, crystallized by its possibilities. Tinged with memories and sweet nostalgia, this solo piece provides a time for observation, sharp writing cut out of a hanging environment. More than ever, the state of presence, of detail and physical intelligence (when defining oneself) are for me a shared thought/action. »
