ONGOING COMMISSIONS & COLLABORATIONS
As coming together is the company’s main artistic focus, Le Bazar Palace enjoys teaming up with other creatives, loves to work on commissions and get involved in imagining collective artworks.
Any format or scale is possible. We happily take on new challenges when they correspond to our creative urges, desires, deadlines; provided they strike a chord and allow us to feel free and especially distance ourselves from production constraints.
All stories featured here are adventures. Human adventures before anything else. Sometimes aesthetic ones.
La nuit je meurs#1: In situ murder party, designed with Caroline Pons, Gaëlle and Aaron from Hôtel Les Cabanettes in Arles.
Cercle(s) / Le Peuple est joyeux: Outside perspective and acting direction for a performance inspired by Loïe Fuller’s serpentine dance, with a female duo (an opera singer and a Swedish violinist). European Swedish-French creation.
360°: Collaboration as external viewpoint on a collective act of poetical resistance that took place after lockdown at the Cité des Arts de la Rue in Marseille, initiated by Générik Vapeur.
Sabbat Astra: A 4-km artistic lantern procession in the Camargue natural reserve, through packs of horses roaming free around the Domaine de La Palissade, along with the humming of folk songs and Boris Vian’s poetry as soundscape.
Ce que la vie signifie pour moi/ Les Chiennes Nationales: A praise to literature and to Jack London’s work, as orchestrated by Maia Ricaud, this collaboration aimed at building a giant Kapla structure as an introductory event to the show.
Avec Plaisir: End-of-the-year performance by students of l’École Nationale des Arts du Cirque (Rosny-Sous-Bois), 12 circus artists-to-be, 3 weeks of creation under the big top. This commission led to the creation of a yearly master-class, which has been repeatedly taught since September 2019.
Six Rennes: In situ commission consisting of a 12-minute performance in between the 2 customary fire sirens blasting every first Wednesday of the month in France, as part of Sirènes and Midi Net, an urban ritual invented by Lieux Publics at the Place de l’Opéra in Marseille.
