My French is broken
My English sounds Australian
My Portuguese is a bit too much Spanish
Fino-chinese… I still learn…
I still don’t know if I come from Jurassik, Switzerland or Oceania
So I dance, between this and its contrary
Jump on risk or reassure my ablazed heart
In the silences of the world and the sounding of men
I play on my old companion
Enjoying precious time that’s given to me
As long as I can breath, I’ll sing



September 2019

‘Sometimes more than a musician or an ‘artist’, I feel I’d better define myself as an adventurer of the 21st Century time! I feel passionate about my time and about Life. I am not an oboist at the Opera House, nor a famous pop singer, neither The last genius inventor in permaculture. Though I had the chance to go through high school and specific studies, I am like having some skills in avariety of fields, trying to be as much as possible engaged and precise in each things, more than being high pitch on one or two specificities. For now... Life is long Hopefully’

Je voyage entre musique, performance-clowne-art de rue (whatever names!), dessins, écritures, danse, agriculture...en collaboration avec des personnes, des lieux, des réseaux variés ; ces choix assez éclectiques déterminés par les liens d'amitié, le goût du présent et la prise de risque plutôt qu'une technique, un outil en particuliers. Je vends ce que je crée. je suis mon propre manager, tourneur, secrétaire, comptable, ..! Et parfois (!?) ça se voit..! Toute proposition de collaboration est Bienvenue :)

DIY, sytème D, collectifs en autogestion, organisations de soirées-évènements, auto- production, circuits courts, work-in-progress, work in situ, écriture, improvisation, low-tech, high-high/low-low... Mon souhait est de cultiver les liens existant, ce que je connais et que j'aime déjà, et garder la porte ouverte à ce que je ne connais encore.

Concilier création et Eco-Logie (au sens vaste) sont en question pour moi depuis longtemps. Je tente d'imaginer des solutions, des réponses ou créations temporaires, ou des manières de faire singulières autour de ce sujet, avec la complexité et la richesse qu'engendre le fait d'être à la fois issue d'une classe populaire (paysanne), porter l’héritage ‘seventies’ de mes parents, être une enfant des années 80 qui a vécu l'explosion consumériste, enfin une femme au milieu des enjeux du 21ème siècle.

Most of my activities is not documented, ‘captured’: ‘spectacle vivant’, improvisation, voyages, ...some maybe is ment to be kept, some is not...Thankfully there is every now and then a kind friend to make pictures and stuff other wise... Blown-up in the Universe ! I express, play and create with various tools, 'in the moment' or around subjects that are dear to my heart since I am a child. As an adult I just feel to be doing the same but dealing with the material, pragmatical and economical aspect of life. How to make a living avoiding power games but trying to take care, doing what I love and being with who I love, and open to what or who I do not know or like yet. The Road stays open

October 2013, end of a cycle

...So you were born two years ago, bloody sucker solo show! I am free I am not free Who is Free?! No certitude no restriction. While Jesus was dying I am going to be born again, and I am not going to save the world, I don't want to end like Marie's son or Michael... One of me is born one of me is dead. 'Fed up with the convenience, between us Politness makes me sick, at least let us battle to keep the illusion of being alive... comotion of the unknown bodies that opens naked in a dance, risk snake and a cup of tea! Theine hides the bleach's smell at our home's tab, cafein also does the job...

To be honnest I don't know about video-editing and I still have not taken any time to work on it, so the 'show is row'! By consequence or as a pretext, I dive into sharing the uncomplete and random. An atempt to reconcile this desire to please and the desire to get read of it. Most of all, this necessity to take myself very seriously and above all to not take myself too seriously. Sometimes I feel I just want to feed the chicken and eat the eggs.

Chaos, the only Entirety. My working method is simple: I do everythig at the same time in a continuous disorder. I read delicious stupid and philosofical books about Death, Love and the World. Which simply leads me to read others stupid, delicious and philosofical books about Death, Love and the World. So I go pick up plums, play some accordeon, write down what is in my head, ride my bicycle singing, and now I got to take care of the wood for winter.
