My writing aims, above all, to make forces perceptible because they are for me an inexhaustible source of "drama"; a theater with a powerful imaginary potential where the dramaturgical element is no longer driven by the psychology of the actor alone.
In this game of forces that cross the actors, we seek to achieve "a point of suspension" (ideal place when the flight of a body reaches its peak and when the fall has not yet begun).

Yoann Bourgeois trained at the National Centre for Circus Arts (CNAC) and at the National Centre for Contemporary Dance (CNDC) in Angers. For four years he was a performer with Maguy Marin’s company. His first piece, "Cavale", was a duet on a trampoline with Mathurin Bolze. In 2014 he created "Celui qui tombe" for the Lyon Dance Biennale, in which six artists attempt to stay upright on a moving stage. Since January 2016, he has co-directed the National Choreography Centre (CCN) of Grenoble with Rachid Ouramdane.
