Vincent Thomasset - author, director and choreographer - works around language, whether it is choreographic, literary or musical. He maintains an intimate relationship with fiction and tries to circumscribe the conditions in which this relationship appears. His pieces are as much explorations of the languages and codes of the theater, whether through his own texts (Sus à la Bibliothèque !, Les Protragronistes, Médail Décor, Galoooooop, Ensemble Ensemble) or by working on existing texts (Arsenic and Old Lace by Frank Capra for Bodies in the Cellar, Julien Prévieux’s Lettres de non-motivation). His abundant writing exhausts the words by declining all possible meanings, restoring language to a literality that it could have lost, and finds in the bodies of its interpreters an ideal alter-ego. After studying literature in Grenoble, he discovered theater by accident, and worked in a cinema for six years before becoming a performer for Pascal Rambert from 2003 to 2007. In 2007 he followed the formation E.xe.r.ce at the CCN of Montpellier and began to develop his own work. He first created performances before creating his first show in 2011.
