Hallo

Martin Zimmermann: movement artist, fervent tinkerer and reckless wannabe presents – for the first time ever – a solo creation. An attempt to fling the absurdities of his inner life inside out and get a grip on his bizarre thought processes. 

For the setting of his newest creation, Martin Zimmermann has chosen a frame structure, turning it into a shop- window-like space to showcase a tragicomic figure driven by the desire to become what he appears to be. The staid, seemingly static framework turns out to be much more dynamic, much more fragile than one thought. The performer tries to adapt himself to the ever more out-of-control world of appearances. Objects come alive and fly around his head, magic overflows the space, obliterating the boundary between fiction and reality. Martin Zimmermann has been appearing onstage for about 20 years. With Hallo he demonstrates the same passion for performance that he had at the beginning of his career. In the calamity-riddled Hallo, Zimmermann keeps trying to work his way through incessantly new, surreal circumstances. He loses touch with reality, mistakes himself for his own reflection in the mirror, folds himself up and becomes another prop on the stage. Martin Zimmermann’s worn out body develops a different, more urgent body language. The artist, trapped under his own spell and his unbridled passion, nearly trips and is saved only by his off-the-wall humour.

Plasson, Fabien

Born in 1977, Fabien Plasson is a video director specialized in the field of performing arts (dance , music, etc).

During his studies at the Ecole Nationale des Beaux-Arts de Lyon (joined in 1995) Fabien discovered video art. He was trained by various video artists (Joel Bartoloméo Pascal Nottoli , Eric Duyckaerts , etc) .
He first experimented with the creation of installations and cinematic objects.

From 2001 to 2011, he was in charge of Ginger & Fred video Bar’s programming at La Maison de la Danse in Lyon. He discovered the choreographic field and the importance of this medium in the dissemination, mediation and pedagogical approach to dance alongside Charles Picq, who was a brilliant video director and the director of the video department at that time.

Today, Fabien Plasson is the video director at La Maison de la Danse and in charge of the video section of Numeridanse.tv, an online international  video library, and continues his creative activities, making videos of concerts, performances and also creating video sets for live performances.
