Diephuis, Herman

Herman Diephuis was born in 1962 in Amsterdam and lives in Paris.
He has worked as a performer for several years with numerous choreographers: Régine Chopinot, Mathilde Monnier, Jean-François Duroure, Philippe Decouflé, François Verret, Jérôme Bel, Xavier Le Roy and Alain Buffard.
In 2002, he choreographed “La C et la F de la F" as part of the project, Les Fables à la Fontaine.
He created his company, the non-profit organisation ONNO, in 2004, in order to produce his own creations and projects. In 2017 he co-created a trio choreography "Goin’down" with Naomi Fall.
At the same time, he develops creative projects with amateurs (whether or not they have an artistic background), such as "Brainstorming (2012), “La Liberté Guidant Romain Rolland" (2011), "Hors Pair" (2008) and “La Cène manquante" (2006), and site-specific projects, including in museums, such as "Vue sur Parc" in September 2014 and "Impressions" in May 2013.
He has also turned his attention as an artistic assistant or collaborator to different artists, including Mathilde Monnier, Raphaëlle Delaunay, Maud le Pladec, Romual Kabore, Teilo Troncy and the Norwegian director Théa Stabell.
He was dance expert at the DRAC in Île-de-France from 2010 to 2012.
With ONNO, he is in residence and associated artist in several cultural structures: at Le Manège, national dance theatre in Reims (2007-2010), in Woodside, California (USA) – Djerassi Resident Artists Program (2011), at the Théâtre Louis Aragon, the subsidised dance theatre in Tremblay-en-France (2010, 2012, 2015 and 2016).

Zeriahen, Karim

From live stage images to life in images, the  director and video artist Karim Zeriahen seems to have found the  shortest way. Since the beginning of the 90s, when he worked in close  relationship with choreographer Philippe Decouflé, he learned how to put  the art of stage in motion, contemporary dance most of the time. Karim  Zeriahen then starts a fruitful collaboration with Montpellier based  choreographer Mathilde Monnier. Stop, Videlilah, day of night, short  films adapted from her stage creations. Each time, Karim Zeriahen's   camera takes over the place with movement, the body language is not  frozen but magnified. Choreographer Herman Diephuis also joins this  gallery of dancing portraits. Documentaries on figures such like Albert  Maysles or Hubert de Givenchy and from Joe Dalessandro to Paul  Morrissey, he sets a signature, a camera always in action with  confidence.

Today the director goes further with a new  project and tracks the subtle movements of the body language beyond the  physical appearance. A collection of living portraits as unique pièces  reminding us of the master portraitists of renaissance. These living  natures consists in filming the subject in a certain amount of time,  almost still, with signs of respiration, eye blinks, as if it were  posing for a painting. They are then displayed on a flat screen with a  memory card. With this collection starting, Karim Zeriahen, with his  documentary and artist vision, interrogates himself about the virtual  world filled with images. By taking a pause, and his models with him, he  questions the way we look at things, the way we look at life.
