The spectator's moment

The Spectator's moment or how to discover an artist, a piece of work or a company in just two minutes. It is a collection of programmes produced by the Maison de la Danse in Lyon and presented by Dominique Hervieu. Each episode is devoted to an artist or a company that is programmed at the Maison de la Danse and offers the public keys or artistic benchmarks for better understanding and appreciating the choreographic art.

Le Mer, Mickaël

Born in 1977, Mickaël Le Mer discovered hip hop in the 90s, during the '2nd wave'. He first trained as part of the collective adventure of the S'Poart Company in 1996. It was in this collective context that Mickaël Le Mer made his first attempts as a choreographer, and, with "In Vivo" (2007), he launched and took on a demanding form of creation that draws on the personal experience of dancers. The result bears the hallmark of a sensitivity that is both poetic and urban, while at the same time developing a great mastery of the stage space and every component of the show (lighting, set design, music, etc.).

His work was most notably rewarded in 2009 with the second jury prize in the Re-Connaissance contemporary dance contest, which is a competition organised jointly by the Maison de la Danse in Lyon and the Centre de Développement Chorégraphique (CDC) in Grenoble. Following this success, Mickaël Le Mer, the company's artistic director and choreographer, was invited by the Institut Français (previously Cultures France) to create a piece as part of the 2010 France-Russia cultural exchange year. This commission resulted in the creation of the Franco-Russian piece "Na Grani", a piece of choreography for ten male and female Russian and French dancers from hip hop and contemporary dance backgrounds. "Na Grani" was played for the first time at the Lyon Biennale de la Danse in 2010.

In 2012, he created "Instable", "Rock it daddy" in 2013, "Rouge" in 2014 and the trio "Traces" in 2015. Mickaël is also working on his next creation "Crossover" which will be released in autumn 2017.

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.
