Born in Milan in 1964, Laura Scozzi found her path in weaving together the miscellaneous. She established her own company Opinioni in Movimento in 1994, and chose to mix dance, singing and theatre together. She went on to carry out research work on emotions, entitled F.E.I.R. - Facteur Extérieur Cherche Individu en vue de Résultat (External Factor Seeking an Individual to Achieve a Result), the series began in 1995 with L’Amour (Love). She continued her route with La Peur (Fear) in 1998, La Colère (Anger) in 2002 and Le Désir, Le Dégoût (Desire, Disgust) in 2004.
At the same time as running her company, she developed her career as an independent choreographer and created several works with hip-hop dancers for the Suresnes Cités Danse Festival. She revisited La Dolce Vita in 2001 and orchestrated Brecht/Weill’s ballet-opera Les Sept Péchés Capitaux (The Seven Deadly Sins) also in 2001. Laura Scozzi has also worked hand-in-hand with a myriad of other creators, and has imagined choreographies for operatic performances, for the theatre and the cinema: Coline Serreau, Laurent Pelly, Jean-Louis Grinda, Emmanuelle Bastet, Matthieu Poirot-Delpech and Sébastien Lifschitz. In 2008, she created her first opera production with Benvenuto Cellini by Hector Berlioz. After this, she produced Die Zauberflöte (The Magic Flute) by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart (2009-2010). In 2014, she created Barbe-Neige et les sept petits cochons au Bois dormant with eight hip-hop dancers.

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.
