She starts Yasaman company after creating two trios named “Genèse d’Eve” and “Exhibition”, performed during festivals, open stages, and competitions such as Sobanova, Slash, Wynkl, and Togaether. Her first long creation, “KHÁOS”, for 5 dancers, presents an identity journey from organic matter to codified bodies.

What follows is “Entrelacs”, an in situ project of music and dance at the Time Museum of Besancon, with four dancers, a violinist, and a cellist. She is starting a new project “SONAR”, in collaboration with the drummer Sebastien Brun and 8 dancers. This stage creation is developed on the basis of the short film SILO, a collaboration between the filmmaker Jérémie Bouillon, the composer Sébastien Brun and herself. In this in situ project, the silo — an infinite metallic cylinder — simultaneously plays the part of a scenographic unit, a choreographic constraint, a musical instrument, and a sound box.

Jérémie Bouillon

| Biography

Jérémie Bouillon started a career in photography in 1999. His travels to Africa, Asia and South America gave him the material that led to a first publication by the ‘Editions de l’oeil’ (winner of the Prix Agfa in 2002) and to a documentary film, ‘My Trainbodyroom’, which received several awards and exposure in France and abroad, notably winning the Grand prix at the Saint Valéry festival in 2003. His photo series, ‘Photographisme’ was presented at Just Jackin gallery in Paris in 2007.

From 2004 to 2010 in addition to his artistic work, he was commissioned for various portraits (actors, writers, and musicians amongst others) in the cultural pages of Paris Match magazine. 

At this time, he also did a large body of work focusing on French style and luxury, contributing to several book publications by the Editions de La Martinière group: Le grand artisanat d’art français (2004). Itinéraires secrets dans la bibliothèque du Sénat (2004), Pleyel (2005), Le Saint Gérant (2006), Tolix (2007), Objets du parfum (2008), Le livre d’art, objet rare (2008). 

In 2010 Jérémie Bouillon started on a new adventure: directing. His research into animation brought him to create his first fictional short film ‘Resonance’ in 2012. Drawing on his background in luxury and beauty he also began a fruitful collaboration with the production company Onirim to create films for Chanel, Chloé, Hermès and Yves Saint Laurent.

Metal has always been at the heart of Jérémie Bouillon’s artistic work. His Parisian studio, set in a corrugated metal box on a Parisian rooftop, inspired the photographic series Box 916, which will be showcased in an exhibition and a book in 2023. As a continuation of this project, he directed the short film SILO in 2022, with choreographer Sarah Adjou and composer Sébastien Brun. In this in situ project, the silo – an infinite metal cylinder – simultaneously plays the part of a scenographic unity, a choreographic constraint, a musical instrument, and a sound box.
