Let's be clear: we don't know each other.
We both got a phone call in March, about how there's a courtyard with a stage, how we can put on a show there.
So we'll begin writing it together in June. We like the challenge. After all, it could be a rule in the performing arts to have little time and no initial idea for a show. We'll do our best.
And like Claude Rains says to Humphrey Bogart at the end of Casablanca: “I think this is the beginning of a wonderful friendship.”
Halory Goerger comes up with shows and installations instead of building houses or fixing animals, because that's better for everyone involved. He works on the history of ideas, because everything else was taken when he showed up. He co-founded L'Amicale de production.
A juggler and director, Martin Palisse founded in 2002 the Cirque Bang Bang with Elsa Guérin. After training with Jérôme Thomas and Maksim Komaro, he has spent the past ten years developing his own unique practice of juggling. Martin Palisse has been the director of the Sirque, Pôle National des Arts du Cirque in Nexon, since 2014.
