En amour

2024 — 40min

Installation-experience with music by Laurent Bardainne
New work 2024

En amour is an immersive and interactive experience, at the crossroads of the performing arts, performance art and visual arts installation.
This work offers the chance to experience a symbolic metamorphosis around the theme of love and separation.
Its narrative is rooted in an intimate story, opening up to greater, to share a journey of sensations, emotions, shapes, colours, sounds and words that will awaken, deglaze and strengthen our love.


En amour is part of a serie of Rituals conceived by artistic company Adrien M & Claire B as spaces for experimentation, both collective and intimate, and placed under the auspices of a powerful gentleness.The installation-experience Last minute, first of this series, created in 2022 is a ritual of care for the dead. The project En amour, a ritual for restoring love, continues this series of Rituals.


Première February 2024. Commissionned by Musée de la musique — Philharmonie de Paris
