ANQUETIL ALL ALONE // 80' - 2019

In the course of this fascinating tale, adapted from the book by Paul Fournel, we follow the career of Jacques Anquetil, a champion admired but unloved by the public, who preferred the "eternal second”, the more endearing Raymond Poulidor.

LES JUMEAUX : ON N’EST PAS Là POUR VENDRE DES CRAVATES // 88' - 2018

Accomplices in life as well as on stage, comedy twins Steeven and Christopher Demora imitate, improvise and poke fun left, right and centre with a great deal of aplomb and subtlety. Their offbeat and provocative humour blends perfectly with their generosity.
Among the imitations, Carla Bruni being coached by her husband Nicolas Sarkozy to conquer the Elysée and Francois Hollande giving Emmanuel Macron a tour of the chateau are worth their weight in laughs.

Only the fertile brains of Jarvis Cocker, former leader of the legendary band Pulp and icon of Britpop, and Chilly Gonzales, pianist and producer of genius, could have dreamed up such a crazy project.

WIEBO (BOWIE/DECOUFLÉ) // 88' - 2015

All the facets of this "man who fell to earth" are shining through an absolutely stunning and transgender show. It is as much a concert as it is a performance, an official ceremony as much as a clandestine cabaret, this great glam rock celebration runs through the work of Bowie in fifteen songs.

A BAS BRUIT (INSIDIOUSLY) // 66' - 2014

Insidiously. This is the way certain epidemics, ideas challenging the established order and nascent feelings are transmitted. Insidiously, like the story of our lives, in which the personal joins the great movements of history. Poised between dance and circus, the show is a kaleidoscopic collection of portraits capturing fractions of an era.
A human-sized hamster wheel is recycled in order to do the rounds of our inner world: a command to race, but also an anti-gravitational experiment....

LA CLÔTURE DE L'AMOUR // 90' - 2014

Stan and Audrey split up. What was once beautiful and moving becomes ugly and tense, mean and petty.

Alexandre Astier, born in 1974 in...
