François Grisé

Founder - Artistic director and general manager

Multidisciplinary artist

François Grisé’s artistic work is multidisciplinary, as it incorporates elements of theatre, installation, performance and visual arts. Up until now, his artworks bring into question and reframe the fleeting and fragile nature of living beings. In the POESIS projects, humans, when put in the hot seat, find themselves in a state of vulnerability. It considers our perception with ourselves, physical places, individual and collective space.

By setting spectators in front of the vulnerability of the human condition, his works ask the question: What happens when we take the time to meet each other? When we ponder our presence in this world? This exposure to the transience of our existence amplifies the sensation and mindfulness in being alive.

Since 2014, with the help of his teams, he directs a large creative cycle entitled Vivre vieux (Living old) which interrogates our individual and collective actions when faced with the new realities of aging. This cycle includes four POESIS, a documentary play and corollaries that prompt further reflection.
