Symposium artistique

For more than four years, LA SERRE – arts vivants and L’Amicale de production have shared their insights on artistic support, by cobbling together interdependent work mechanisms that celebrate collective intelligence.

The two organizations continue to cooperate by offering a transatlantic artistic symposium, in a format adapted to the context of Covid that allows four artists to work alone-together, close-by and from afar.

Considered an experimentation space, the artistic symposia created by l’Amicale offer participants and participated to serve each other through the use of playful methodological tools to polish ongoing creative processes. These symposia open a conversation space stimulated by an iterative approach, relying on the testing of prototypes that trigger the questions asked by works in progress.

In February, during the Cabaret de curiosités, a festival organized by the Phénix (France, Valenciennes), two artists from Quebec shared their prototypes with two French artists. In May, it will be the turn of the OFFTA to welcome this joyful device, this time offering an in-person experience.

Participating artists:
Maxime Brillon (QC)
Julien Fournet (FR)
Odile Gamache (QC)
Ina Mihalache (FR)

With the complicity of Lorette Moreau (FR), Guillaume Saindon (QC), Marine Thévenet (FR) and Jade Préfontaine (QC).

L’Amicale (France)
L’Amicale is a living projects cooperative and a collective of skills that produces creative and methodological objects. It produced and created shows presented on national and international stages. It attempts to give an answer to aesthetic and economical concerns related to new forms of staging, while developing a reflection surrounding production and cooperation.
